ABOUT
-----

as videos. The program can view saved slideshows, and play videos in various
formats.


FEATURES
--------

- Delays between images, video resolution, and the output framerate can be
freely defined

- Texts can be formatted in various ways: bold, italics, underlined, shadow,
outline, RGB/ARGB colors, etc.

- Slideshows can be viewed within the program prior to saving them as videos
- Can play its own saved videos, and a variety of other video formats
- ARexx, Command Line, and tooltypes support


INSTALLATION
------------

There are two optional ways to install the progam:
1) Use the Grunch program to install the program automatically. It will also
allow Ambient to recognise RNOSlides project files and open them with the
program when double-clicked on (installs its own project filetype).
2) Install it manually by copying the whole directory anywhere you want, and
configure Ambient to recognise RNOSlides projects by copying the provided
filetype to the corresponding path in your SYS: partition and modifying the
command path in the x-rnoslides file to point to where the program is
located.


USAGE NOTES
-----------

- Spacebar pauses and Esc quits viewing of slideshows and videos.
- Images are swapped with the Left and Right keys when in manual viewing mode.
- Videos can be seeked through by using the Left/Right/Up/Down keys.
- Text formatting options are explained at:
https://www.hollywood-mal.com/docs/html/hollywood/PrgFormatTags_.html

preserved for a new entry when adding further images.

Slideshow opens its own screen on the second monitor. The mouse disappears and nothing happens. My second monitor isn't always on, but I noticed it right away.
