looking for multi-box effect or plug-in

i was wondering if there is a plug-in that would allow me to randomly display a multitude of pics....say like 400..on screen. i would be using 100 pics so there would have to be some repeats. all the pics are the same aspect ratio. they would be next to each other with no gaps. they would come on screen in random order.
thank you for any help.

Know Photoshop? Put all those pics in one Photoshop document. Make one big still out of them. Then use the Card Dance effect to pull this off. It should work very well.

An alternative if, like me, you're too lazy to arrange 400 images by hand, is to use a particle system to emit pictures at random. With Particular, you can either generate a 'cloud' of images and then move through it in 3D, or use a grid layout to keep everything where you want, but with the images changing at random.
