 +====== Billboard ======

 +
 +The billboard is used to show text information inside the 3D window.
 +
 +You can add a static text but also text from textfiles. There is a property //​textFiles//​ where you insert a path pattern to textfiles.
 +The content fo these textfiles will be displayed.
 +
 +You can use a path with a placeholder for the frame number according to the python format syntax.
 +
 +For example
 +
 +<​code>​
 +/​home/​freek/​texts/​my_comment_%04.f.png
 +</​code>​
 +points for frame 567 to
 +<​code>​
 +/​home/​freek/​texts/​my_comment_0567.png
 +</​code>​
 +
 +A text is shown until the next file with a suitable filename ist available. Then it's replaced by that one.
 +
 +So you can hold texts for a longer time on screen to get the behavior of a slide show. If you have /​home/​freek/​texts/​my_comment_0567.png and next /​home/​freek/​texts/​my_comment_0617.png then the first comment will rest for (617 -567) = 50 frames, this is normally 2 seconds. ​
 +
 +
 +Other options to display are:
 +
 +  *Date an Time
 +  *Filename and Author
 +  *Frame number
