Slideshows are projects that display a series of slides one after the other, commonly changing slides on a certain key press. Slideshows are usually used to explain a subject the creator wants to talk about, or a skill the creator wants to teach.
- Explain a subject
- Teach a skill
- Express a view
- Introduce oneself
This is a quick method to make a simple slideshow using the Stage. Each backdrop of the Stage will be one slide and the slides will advance when Space is pressed. One can put this script into the backdrop scripts area:
when gf clicked switch backdrop to (slide 1 v) //reset clear graphic effects forever wait until <key (space v) pressed?> //only change slides on space pressed repeat (20) change [brightness v] effect by (5) end next backdrop //change backdrops while completely white, hiding the cut repeat (20) change [brightness v] effect by (-5) end end
Using Graphic Effects
Frequently (including in the above example), Graphic Effects are employed as transitions between slides, to hide the jump-cut between slides or to enhance the experience. The only disadvantage of graphic effects is that they need to be cleared before the slideshow, but this is a minor qualm and does not make the creation process difficult.
