    the command line interface is intended to do better batch processing rendering projects. You probably can try to create a template PhotoFilmStrip for example with 10 pictures in it. Before executing your commandline you have to exchange the pictures in the folder where your PhotoFilmStrip project is expecting them. Just by copying other pictures with same filenames. If you do this the picutres must have the same dimenstions (width and height), because the rectangles for the movement should fit.
    Another way could be to completely create a PFS project by yourself. It is just a simple sqlite3 database. Just check an exisiting pfs file with a database browser (e.g. sqlitebrowser). I think the schema is quite self explaining ;-)
