Evaluating xatshow - problem with slide transitions

Actually as I look more closely the way the greater than 9 slideshows is
handled is fine with me, via multiple slideshows per menu and then
multiple menu pages. If I could just have one show that transitioned
all slides from the one show(folder) to another.

Sticking 600 slides in a folder and moving around in them seems a
nightmare. Figuring out where one leaves off to edit etc.
