    Dissappointed with lack of control

    Unlike “Active Slide Show” which has been around for quite a while and has controls over each slide on where they start and where they end and allowing custom timing for each slide, this program does not allow for individual controls. 

    Really disappointed with the lack of control over each slide. This is not good for portrait presentation where the subjects head goes missing half the time. Unless I am missing something, it does not seem to have support for audio where as “Active Slide Show” had this. Bought this to get away from flash only to be disappointed with the final output product..

    Simple fade effect won't work in IE

    HTML5 Slideshow disappoints me. It can't even do a simple fade effect in IE. Also no recent replies on bugs in the forums. There is no flexibility in the designs as well. Sorry, but I feel like this is the worst extension I bought from DMXzone and I wont recommend it. There are better sliders in the market based on jQuery for the same price, more flexibility and cross-browser support (including fade effects in IE). I ended up buying a better slider elsewhere :*(

    absolutely blindingly brilliant ... pure quality

    Created dynamic slideshow in seconds .... www.ratpack.biz ... absolutely blindingly brilliant !

    Only downer is too many variations on the fades in/outs ... don't know which one to use ... they all look good !

    re: First Slide

    Great plug in. On my wish list would be to have control over at least the first slide so that I can have it linger longer as a still image at first and then have it start to move. How hard would that be? ;-)
