slideshow with FW pro 5

Hi,
did a search on the site but couldn’t find an answer, i’m building a web portal for our company and want to display a slideshow in the home page.
iphoto is very handy in creating a Quicktime movie, the problem is that i want the images to be random, so everytime one goes to the home page a new image will start the slideshow.
is there an easy way to achieve this?
thanks for your time :slight_smile:

There is a javascript action that came with Freeway 4 that worked along these lines, but I can’t remember if it could change like a slideshow. You might want to take a look at BannerZest Pro or SlideshowPro. In my opinion it doesn’t get any easier than BannerZest for non-flash experienced people.

This would not be too hard to do, but there isn’t an existing Action
to do it. There’s a random picture Action, but that only shows one of
the images. There’s a number of slideshow things you can do; Weaver
has written a nice wrapper to the lightbox.js system, and that works
really well. If you don’t want to get out of the boat and start
swimming in JavaScript, then I would do this: Put a stack of images
on your page, and use the random picture Action to make one of them
appear at page load. Make all of these images link to another page
where you have Weaver’s Lightbox Action set up to show all pictures
in a lightbox. Not precisely what you wanted, but you could do this
right now.

Weaver is at http://www.coastalrugs.com/Actions

Random Picture is a core Action, or it’s in the Softpress Knowledgebase.
