Controlling Quicktime frames

You could use the currentTime setting to step through a QT movie.  If there 
is no interaction, and you're just displaying a static frame, all you would 
need is something like this:

on NextFrame
         put the currentTime of player "Power Point" into tCurrentTime
         add tTheAppropriateTime to tCurrentTime
         set the currentTime of player "Power Point" to tCurrentTime
end NextFrame


You will have to figure out what tTheAppropriateTime is.  I'm not sure how 
PowerPoint exports to QT.
