This extension utilizes "mooslide", a mootools extension class which implements a convenient animated slideshow/ticker. everything is highly configurable via the flexform (and typoscript if wanted).
To start: simply insert this plugin on a page, select some content elements as source (and fine tune parameters if you like) and your slideshow/ticker is running.
NOTE: this extension requires mootools (1.1 or 1.2) to be present; you can choose via the constant editor if you like include the library that comes with this extension or t3mootools.
NOTE: using this extension on the same page with an included prototype/jquery js librariy WONT WORK as these libraries are incompatible to each other.
