I have a group of media cues (jpgs) that are timed and set to loop. I would like each cue to dissolve out before the next cue dissolves in. How do I set this up? Thanks.

You'l want to select each cue and then the Cue and Page Options tool. Set your transitions in and out, set the timing of the transition and close the window. You'll have to do this for each cue you have in the loop.

Adam, thank you for your prompt reply. I am not able to find the Cue and Page Options tool. I want each cue to transition to black and the next cue to transition from black to its content. I don't want overlap of the images. I cannot figure out how to do this. Thanks.

The best way to guarantee a transition to black and then back to the content of the next cue is to add a blank cue in between. You'll also want to transition the blank in and out using the Cue and Page Options tool. See the attached illustration for the Cue and Page Options tool.

Adam,<br /> Thank you for the tip of adding a blank cue. It appears that the snapshot you included is for MediaShout 6. I am using MediaShout 5, thus the reason for posting this question in the MediaShout 5 (Windows) User Forum. Does the Cue and Page Options tool exist in MediaShout 5. I was not able to find it. Thanks.

My apologies. The same thing would be true in v5. Add a black cue between the cues and apply a transition to the Other Objects tab, Main Objects tab and on the General tab. Apply the same transition to the previous and next cues on the same tabs and you should get the desired affect.
