slide show pro

can freeway pro v5 embed an xml file, created by slideshow pro for director, or is there another easier way to get a “hot” looking show like those created by slideshow pro into my otherwise HTML website?

How exactly is the XML to be used? I have markup code blocks in my
panorama pages (for example
http://www.panoramaphotographer.com/festivals/glade09/inspiral-chill-tent.html
) that call custom XML files, which in turn load a SWF file and
specific cubeface images and specify the behaviour of the panorama.
It is pretty simple getting the hook into a Freeway layout, although
that is actually a reference in the HTML page to a separate XML
document…

If you’re using Director then you won’t need to create an XML file since the CMS does it for you. You’d only need to if you were using SSP for Lightroom or the Flash component versions.

NOTE: If you’re using Director for your site, the slideshow content may not show up in the Preview of the site until you put it on an actual server space.

Thanks for the replies. Do I understand correctly that I do NOT need to use Lightroom, ie that Director does not require the additional software?

You will need either the SSP for Lightroom (Lightroom required) or the SSP Flash Component (Flash required) or the Standalone SSP Component (non-Flash based and a good text editor are required) to connect the outputted SWF file to your Director installation.

If you think about it, how would you connect Director to anything? It’d be like trying to call someone who didn’t have a phone.
