Presentation software on classic Amiga?

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.

I’ve tried:

Presentation Masterhttp://amr.abime.net/review_51445

Works well as a PowerPoint type application, but often crashes when it loads an IFF slide.

Shockhttp://aminet.net/package/gfx/misc/Shock

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 🙂

Try Scala or Amigavision.

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.

Yes, Scala is excellent for this sort of thing – think of it as a primitive version of PowerPoint. It can do various transitions, text overlay, animations etc. Scala MM400 is the last version released on the Amiga I believe.
