I’ve been working on setting up mimoLive and haven’t been able to find a way to do an image slideshow other than to screencapture another application performing a slideshow, which isn’t ideal. I note there is a media playlist source - but this only seems to work with video, not with static images. There’s also an instagram source but I’m not sure uploading all my images to instagram is going to be practical.
Having a slideshow source would be really useful. Some use cases:
- rotating logos: if a show is sponsored by more than one sponsor, it would be useful to have the sponsors logos on a display rotation in the corner of the screen. Having the option to rotate logos also means using the source in say the lower 3rd image I can rotate through the organisations logos (we have both an image-only and wordmark version of our logo), or for example to have 2.5s of organisation logo and then 2.5s of the person’s face (which is useful when the lower 3rd is presented for a person talking off camera, something which happens often during an eSports broadcast).
- variable background: having a slideshow as a background/fullscreen during intermissions
This functionality is so critical to my productions that before I can go live I will be creating animated gif version of the slideshows I have used before ML, a process which isn’t really ideal.
That is, unless I’m missing something and the functionality is actually there and I just haven’t figured it out!
