I am a graphic designer for a baseball stadium, and we are trying to increase our production quality by adding some interesting facts about our players on their player cards that display while they're at bat. The cards range in number from 01 to 100 (00 is the actual number on the card). In the past, we have only had three facts, and we have been either switching between three keynotes or making one very lengthy Keynote and placing each set of cards at a 100 mark (100, 200, 300, etc.). This year, we are trying to add many more facts, and possibly add/change them throughout the season.
As of right now, we are using Keynote to display the player cards, since it is easy to jump to a specific card using the number keypad - since we always have 100 or each card, it works out nicely. We are looking to create various versions of each player's card with different facts on them, and have a different one display each time the batter comes up.
The challenge is, we don't have the same number of facts for each player. Aside from manually creating duplicates for players that don't have a new fact and placing them in the same shows as the new cards, to fill the gaps, can anyone think of any software that would be able to create "playlists" of cards for each player and have the software automatically select the next one that hasn't been displayed yet, and loop the "playlist" once it reaches the end of the images? I'm thinking it would have to work much like playlists in iTunes, but in a hierarchy that could nest playlists in playlists. There has to be some solution that doesn't involve a 1000+ slide Keynote or a lot of manual data managing. Thoughts?
