    Re: Using dynamic images

    What I did in the end was to create a template html page with place-holders for the image names ie %%image1%%, read in the template, used the replace string %%image1%% with selected/choosen (dynamic) image (full path) and wrote this to the hdrive and displayed it with the browser.
    Works a treat.

    You could find the images using AMS and then pass them to the WebBrowser Object in the URL.

    Thanks Brad,

    I also found that page. They have some great HTML scripts with some very nice page transitions. Only problem is, it's not dynamic. The script itself call the image1 to image5. What I need is that the script 'finds' the jpg's in a dir on my harddrive.

    If you find anything like THAT...that would be great.

    Here is a free set of scripts to use inside IE that does a slide show with transitions.

    Re: Using dynamic images

    Hi Corey,

    How 'bout that powertips cdrom? If been looking at the announcements for some time now, and haven't seen it popping up there.. Some delays?

    I'm getting quite desperate for this little project, which I explained earlier. Maybe you could give me a hint or part of the flashfile so I can start looking at it myself. The project self is quite basic: the flashfile dynamically loads jpg files from a location of the peecee. It shows the JPG and than with a basic powerpoint effect like whipe, shows the next JPG.

    Thanks for any assistance

    Actually I cover that in depth on the new Powertips CD (out this week) but it's a bit beyond the scope of the forum for me to describe the whole process here. My best advice is to hang on a few days until the powertips CD is out and check out the sample lessons and grab that if you like it ($29), and if not re-post at that time and I'll put together some sort of sample file for you...

    In the meanwhile if you have specific problems as you try to build it yourself in Flash just post here and I'll help you through whatever's going on...

    Re: Using dynamic images

    What I would like to have is the following:

    1. I have a cdrom containing .jpg images.
    2. I want to present those image to an audience.
    3. But instead of showing image after image in 5 seconds, I'd like to present it a bit more classy, for example by using a fade in/out combination, or a move in/out combination

    That's it actually: a flashfile reading .JPG's of the cdrom and showing them in a nice way.

    OK what do you need to know? If you have never used flash it's probably best to pop it open and experiement with the built in lesson tutorials until you have a feel for the very basics. From there it's simple...

    Re: Using dynamic images

    As not being a Flash a experienced Flash user, any change anyone could show me the way on how to do this.

    I already thought that Flash would be the way to go...going through this forum makes you clear that almost anything can be done by using flash

    Re: Using dynamic images

    This file is of great use for something i'm trying too. Only thing i'd like to add to this way of making a dynamic slideshow is the option to make it a little more entertaining.

    Simple thing, which would be enough for me, is a simple wipe in, or some other basic transition.

    I think the problem with transitions is that you'd need something like Flash. Could Flash handle a imageslide show from a dynamic location (say a cdrom with jpg's) and automatically add the transition?

    Here is a link to a thread that has a sample project that I made that uses the media player object to load images.
