The Slide Options inspector lets you change settings of selected slides in the Storyboard/Timeline. You can make changes to multiple slides at once by selecting several slides in the Storyboard/Timeline before adjusting settings in the Slide Options inspector.
Enabling animation will apply a Pan & Zoom effect (also known as Ken Burns effect) to all layers (images, movies, or titles) of a slide. Animation can be turned on with the Enabled checkbox in the Slide options, or menu commands available in the> menu and various context menus. The Stage will then display the selected slide twice: the start position of the animation on the left side, and the finish position of the animation on the right side. FotoMagico will render the motion between those two positions in real-time.
The duration determines how long the animation takes. If the Continue type is set to “After Duration”, then it also determines how long the slide is shown before the slideshow advances to the next slide.
Drag the duration slider from 0s to 60s. You can also enter a duration longer than 60s by typing the value into the text field next to the slider.
The Continue type determines how and when the slideshow advances to the next slide. There are several options:
If you give a slide a name, it will be displayed in the Storyboard/Timeline above the slide, instead of the slides index number. The name does not have any effect for playback. It is simply an authoring tool you you to structure your slideshow, akin to chapters, but at a more fine grained level.
Use the text field to enter teleprompter notes for the selected slide. These notes will be displayed in the teleprompter or during a live presentation. For more information, see Using the Teleprompter. You can also use the notes field to enter notes or text to yourself about the slides during authoring. For example, “Replace this image with an updated photo.”
