automagically adding transitions between pics in a slideshow? - Mac Applications & Software

A friend of mine sent me a DVD with a few slideshows on it (done by a PC). Between each picture in the slideshow was a transition effect (push, radial, etc.). Ok, I can do this manually in iMovie. Just add pics from an iPhoto album, then add the transitions one at a time. But that's pretty time consuming if there's a lot of pics. Is there any way to automate this operation? Applescript, shell script, etc.? Running OS X 10.2.6, iMovie 3.0.2., iDVD 2. -Jason -- Jason Perez | "Frodo Lives!" "Gig 'em!" Austin, TX...

    For this sort of thing, I would suggest using "LiveSlideShow" rather
    than iMovie (and I'm a huge fan of iMovie). iMovie's AppleScript
    dictionary only has one verb in it -- DoCommand, and inserting a
    transition is not a menu-command operation.
