How can i make DreamScene change Pictures?

How can i make DreamScene change the pictures or vidoes in the desktop backrounds in my themes.

Like when you put in pictures and they change every 3 5min in a movement?

Windows 7 themes support rotation e.g. they allow you to change pictures every 30 seconds or every few minutes, but Dreamscenes are different. Here is what you can do

1) Find out how to use the command line 

2) Find out the command to launch a Dreamscene from command line 

3) Use the Windows task scheduler to run the command e.g. stored in a .bat file

As you can see there are quite a few steps you'd have to figure out 

If you only want to change pictures

1) Right click on desktop

2) Click Pesonalize 

3) Click on the blue link at the bottom saying Desktop Background

4) Select a time e.g. 30 minutes from the dropdown "Change picture every"
