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 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.
