File type processing options

You can access the program's file type recognition options dialog box by selecting "File type recognition" from the Options menu, or pressing Command-U.

The file type recognition options affect what sort of pictures are considered for displaying when you scan a folder or volume (i.e. disk or CDROM). Once you have saved a series of file names in a tag file, changing the file type recognition options will not affect whether or not pictures in the tag file are displayed.

Example


GIF pictures

If you wish to scan for GIF pictures, check this option.


Autodesk Animator movies

QuickSlideshow has some rudimentary support for Autodesk Animator ".FLI" files. If you have a ".FLI" file on disk you may find that QuickSlideshow attempts to process it and display it in animated form. This display routine is still under development, and the displays therefore may not be correct, or at the correct speed. If you wish to scan for Autodesk Animator movies, check this option.
