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.

Common Uses

  • Explain a subject
  • Teach a skill
  • Express a view
  • Introduce oneself

Quick Method

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. Put this script into the Stage:

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

And that is the entire slideshow.

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.
