I wasn't sure in which forum to post this question.


I need to output through my macbook's video port a simple photo slideshow (no audio, preferably a simple transition between photos) and while it is playing I need to add new pictures.


While this is happening I need to be able to use the computer (I need it to take the pictures (through a tethered camera) and print the new pictures)


I usually work in FCP and Premiere. But I assume I need a new piece of software to do this.


I have no idea where to even look for this.


Thanks in advance for any help!

    use two monitors or a monitor and a projector; one for the slideshow and one for Lightroom


    Create a slideshowin Lightroom then export as a QT video

    show the Quicktime in full screen then return to Lightroom to import using tethered feature of your camera
