 +This tool can be used to embed slide shows or videosequences into a scene. It creates a rectangle on which the images are displayed. The rectangle is always directed to the camera position. Its position in space can be changed by hand.
 +
 +The property //​pictures//​ is a path pattern ​ to the image files. You can use a path with a placeholder for the frame number according to the python format syntax.
 +
 +For example ​
 +<​code>​
 +/​home/​freek/​pics/​my_picture_%04.f.png
 +</​code>​
 +
 +points for frame 567 to 
 +<​code>​
 +/​home/​freek/​pics/​my_picture_0567.png
 +</​code>​
 +
 +An image is shown until the next file with a suitable filename ist available. Then it's replaced by that one.
 +
 +So you can hold images for a longer time on screen to get the behavior of a slide show.
 +If you have  ''/​home/​freek/​pics/​my_picture_0567.png''​ and next ''/​home/​freek/​pics/​my_picture_0617.png''​ then the first picture will rest for (617 -567) = 50 frames, this is normally 2 seconds.
 +
 +The dimension fo the rectangle is by default 64 x 48. You can change it in the rectangle objects property tab.
 +The length hight ratio should fit the ratio of your images to avoid distortion effects.
