Thank you Leo, Michael, Ronnie, your info was very helpful. Michael's link
to the crossfading part worked very nicely, and with -loop 1 and -shortest,
the result repeats the images until the audio runs out. It seems that -loop
takes a boolean, not a duration, at least that's what happened for me, but
the loop instruction was also critical to keeping the show going until the
audio file ran out.

Much appreciate all your help, thank you,
