I want to insert many images to create a slideshow, perhaps between 60-100. I’m assuming each image will need to be a separate scene, but I don’t want to have to do this one at a time. Moreover, I would like to apply the same actions to all scenes (again, not one at a time).
There’s not really a good way to do this presently.
Your best bet would be to make a UI automation/accessibility script to trigger menus/keystrokes. However, I suspect writing such code would take much longer than a single manual effort for adding 60-100 images even if you are highly proficient in this type of scripting.
Ooh yes, ouch, one of my least favorite things, AppleScript. Any chance I could add directly to the hype files? It wouldn’t be hard to write a Perl program to post entries to the XML file (and the Resources files) … though maybe it would require information that wouldn’t be available to me or that you’d be unwilling to divulge.
I envision creating many slideshows, so the manual method really isn’t an option.
Regardless, always appreciate your timely responses.
Below are two discussions on this Forum that might be what You are looking for… I have not used either one but fellow Forum Member @MarkHunte has a hand in both of these threads, and created the associated Hype Projects that I have attached here for convenience.
Since I am not privy to the details of your project I do not understand why You are assuming this set-up… but it is not required to have separate Scenes for each slide. Along these lines I do not know what “actions” You are wanting to apply. Below are two threads~posts that may prove useful for your project.
