Rotating Background Pictures

What I want to do is take a bunch of pictures, and have them shuffle. I want it to last a few minutes, not seconds. Can I just take an animator and do this? Is there anything specific?

I cannot find out how to add another frame. Also, how do I make it random?

If you want to make it random you can do it a few ways. The easiest is to use a javascript that will take an array of images and randomly animate them. In imageready to name a new frame, click on the triangle in the top right corner of the animations panel, youll then see new frame at the top of the dropdown menu. I have a few basic imageready tutorials on http://www.ocmob.com/b-art/tutorials.php

Here is a link to some javascript code that will do it.

Look on download.com for stuff. I've seen programs on there before that will do exactly what you want.

Just use imageready or a program similar, to make a .gif. You can set a gif as your background but they wont be random, itll just be an animation of images. If you post all the pictures you want to use Ill make it for you.
