Hi webdoc
Thanks for your reply. well i have changed my mind with slidedeck. I now want to use Piecemaker flash 3D slider ( I want to use it on the home page only, while other pages will not have it.

Piecemaker flash 3D slider allow specifying the setting, images, swf and video through xml. So basically i want to have Piecemaker flash 3D slider in my homepage as the top banner just below Navigation bar and i want to be able to upload the assets (images, swf) i want to rotate and also enter the settings (transition, speed, hight) from the admin interface.

I will really appreciate any help you can render, i have also attached the Piecemaker flash 3D slider brief settings documentation.

U need only for images or also the text part?

example of the pieceaker:
<Image Source="contents/piecemaker1.png" Title="The Piecemaker 2"></Image>
<Image Source="contents/piecemaker2.png" Title="Lots of new Features">
<Text>&lt;h1&gt;New hot Features&lt;/h1&gt;&lt;p&gt;The all new Piecemaker comes with lots of new features, making it even more slick.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;Just to mention a few - you can now specify unlimited transition styles, include your own SWF and Video files, add hyperlinks to images and info texts with all special characters.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;We also impoved the navigation and the animation with animated shadows and pixel-perfect transitions.&lt;/p&gt;</Text>
<Hyperlink URL="" Target="_blank" />
<Flash Source="contents/flash.swf" Title="Loaded SWF File">
<Image Source="contents/flash-preview.png" />
<Image Source="contents/piecemaker3.png" Title="Editing made Easy"></Image>
<Video Source="contents/video.mp4" Title="Video Example" Width="910" Height="365" Autoplay="true">
<Image Source="contents/video-preview.jpg" />

Let me know waht u need and i try to make u tepmplate and .php files
