With the upcoming Amiga Ireland party ( http://www.meetup.com/Amiga-Users-Ireland/events/231909408/ ), I’ve prepared a short presentation. But I’m finding that displaying IFF images as a slideshow on the Amiga is no easy task, especially if I want the images to progress according to keyboard/mouse input rather than just being timed.
Presentation Master – http://amr.abime.net/review_51445
Works well as a PowerPoint type application, but often crashes when it loads an IFF slide.
Only does image slides (no composition/text etc) and only timed slides – also has a bug where some times cannot be specified for certain slides.
QuickFlix – http://aminet.net/package/gfx/show/QuickFlix
This requires scripting, which is more than I bargained for when I downloaded it. The first run didn’t work well (I think it crashed on a certain image) and now I’ll be looking at including the logging options in the script if I plan to forge ahead.
Gurus every time. I knew there was a good reason for not using it 🙂
Thanks to Sir_Lucas I’ve found an application called Visage (available on aminet.net) that will do a slideshow of images. It still doesn’t count as presentation software of course and I’d still like to find a better application that does what Presentation Master aims to but with better stability/support on the A1200.
