I want to create a slideshow of pictures on the side of a spinning primitive cube.

Rather than using external compositing tags on the cube faces and going into after effects I wondered if it was possible to go through a sequence of images in the material texture channel.

I presume it can be done with xpresso. My xpresso knowledge is very basic so if anyone can give me a few tips on how this could be done great.

Ideally I would want an external folder containing several jpegs that the of how long the texture appears for or if it is possible.

Anyhow, any help on this topic would be really appreciated.

you don't need xpresso for this you can keyframe which image you use directly (in the Bitmap Shader dialog), you could also put the images in separate material and keyframe which material is used in the Texture tag.

Thanks Brian, that was a lot simpler than I thought it would be. : )
