Please help!

    Hi,
    I'm a complete beginner at Max, and recently began experimenting with it for a photography installation I'm creating.
    However, I'm a bit overwhelmed, so I would greatly appreciate any help or pointers.
    I'm currently working on a photo-project, in which I'm photographing every minute of 24 hours. For the presentation, I need a way of having the images going across a screen (1080p resolution), and hitting the center of the screen at the time it was taken. Please see the illustration I have attached.
    So, the photograph I took at 16:47, will at 16:47 hit the center of the screen, followed by 16:48 and so on. I don't want the actual photographs to be fullscreen, but have a resolution of 460x345px. I have experimented with "jit.world" objects, and using "jit.videoplane" objects to place images within the screen. However, I am struggling with how to get any further.
    I know this is a lot of stuff, and a lot to ask. But I would be ever grateful for any help!

      try this:
      set up 3 videoplanes and change their position so that only 2 are visible at any one time: when a plane is not visible, that's when you load in another image.
      here's a method using output of line to synchronize the videoplanes' positions :
      the image loading would be done at the 20-second mark of each minute, ie HH:MM:20
      the line would be started at the 40 second mark of each minute
      there's a time of day object called date
      have the file path's of your images loaded into a coll which is indexed according to the time of day
