Hi, I'm thinking of using Mathematica to create some slides for a presentation on 3D graphics algorithms. I've found a lot of neat ways of creating examples but I'm having a bit of trouble seeing how to lay out the slides. In particular - How can I hide the Input cells with the Mathematica source code in them? - Can I have a cell that doesn't stretch all the way across the slide horizontally? So that I can have some text and an example by the side of it? - Can I have a cell that doesn't appear when the slide is first shown, but which appears when the advance button is pressed? Something like the multistage animations in PowerPoint? - Can I have any transition between slides other than a jump? I'd be really grateful for any help with these. Thanks in advance.
