Is it possible to link to an external Media file from a Toaster composition and then back again so it continues from the same point.

What I need to do is... jump to PowerPoint files in the middle of a talking head section... show several PPslides that can be described and discussed by a live presenter, who will then field questions and may have to move back and forth to previous slides, and then on a click... return back to the same point in the video.

If that can't be done, is it possible to create a slide show right in the Toaster composition that will will hold a slide onscreen for an indefinate period of time while the slide is explained and discussed (live in the seminar) and then continue with a click. It's also necessary to be able to move backwards to previous slides too.

Thanks !!!
Sam

Is there an outside source where I could find info?

This could be done using two DDR's.
One is your video, in Cue mode, and the other is your list of powerpoint jpeg images.

The moment you swtich over to the powerpoint list, the video will pause.
