Looking for a real good slide presentation gadget

Post by Serendipity Seraph » Wed Jan 30, 2013 10:18 pm

The one I used in SecondLife was pretty easy to use as you just dumped a bunch of textures in and it figured out the rest. It also had an ability to associate a note card with every slide that would be 'said' when the slide was visited. But it was missing the ability to break up a longer note into segments with configurable time between. This ability was mainly useful for people to view/interact with a deck later. Ideally I would like to find something with the same capabilities but something that is modifiable and has the basics would allow me to add the rest. Of course making my own is always an option but who has the time? :)

What I would love even more is something more web based. But of course that gets us into the whole group browsing general need where one person controls the web interface and everyone else sees the results. Or if loading new textures from offline was fast enough then maybe it could be done that way.

maybe this would be helpful? the timer can be set to others in 3 places-))

Code: Select all

//This script loads an image from the web on all surfaces of the prim and refreshes the image every 600 seconds, just in case it changes. When clicked, the prim leads to a website.

default
{
   state_entry()
   {
       llSetTimerEvent(600.0);
   }
   on_rez(integer total_number)
   {
     string  dynamicID="";
     integer refreshRate = 600;
     string  contentType="image";
     string srcURL = "http://a webite.com/new.jpg"; // URL
     string URLTexture=osSetDynamicTextureURL(dynamicID, contentType ,srcURL  , "", refreshRate ); 
     if (llStringLength(URLTexture)>0) 
      {
        llSay(0,"URLTexture = "+URLTexture);
        llSetTexture(URLTexture, ALL_SIDES);
      }
  }
  timer() 
  {
     string  dynamicID="";
     integer refreshRate = 600;
     string  contentType="image";
     string srcURL = "http://a website.com/new.jpg"; // URL
     string URLTexture=osSetDynamicTextureURL(dynamicID, contentType ,srcURL  , "", refreshRate ); 
     if (llStringLength(URLTexture)>0) 
      {
        llSay(0,"URLTexture = "+URLTexture);
        llSetTexture(URLTexture, ALL_SIDES);
      }
   } 
       touch_start(integer total_number)
    {
        llLoadURL(llDetectedKey(0), "More information about Region Creations", "http://minethere.blogspot.com/2012/10/region-creations.html");
    }
}

In ohn freebies, there's a texture changer with left and right buttons, floating text to tell you what slide/pic you are on, and it is configurable to be auto changed or manual. The script is modifiable so you can customize further.

Added later: and you can also just copy/paste script contents into your own object script to make it fully exportable :D

try 3: also on the ohn freebies (scripts modifiable) - media viewer with menu - 4-prim media viewer (web sites/videos/tutorials/etc.) with menu prim. Web page/video titles are displayed in HTML on the menu prim.13 links configured as examples. Titles and links are specified in a note card. Visitor just click menu prim button to choose what to view. Viewer includes NEED HELP button that gives notecard to visitors that need help with enabling media.

LOL. Hope that's useful anyway.
