Activate Front Row via a keyboard shortcut
Authored by: mattybinks on Jan 20, '06 06:55:31AM

I just tried running front row on my powerbook and noticed something interesting when you are connected to an external monitor.

Set the arrangement of the monitors so that the external display is on the left. Click into the "Photos" section and notice where the first thumbnail is actually drawn before it slides into the main monitor's space.

Here is a screenshot showing the position of the image thumbnail before it slides in. The gray space on the left of the image is the 2nd monitor's desktop background picture. The duplication of the thumbnail is a result of my movie capture software choking during the transition animation.

Does anyone know how Apple captures the transitions as shown on their website (http://www.apple.com/macosx/theater/dashboard.html)?

Another thing is that Front Row responds to the same slow motion animation as the dock by holding the shift key down.
