How to create a filmstrip style panel and get even spacing?

I would like to create a carousel that's flat, much like a filmstrip. I've taken the CoverFlow2D class and modified it so it doesn't scale or change opacity.  This nearly gets me what I want, however the space between each element is calculated for me instead of a predefined value.  Where should I look to override the spacing calculation?  Or is there already a filmstrip type algorithm?

Hi, sorry for the (very) late answer,

You have to create an algorithm that does that for you.

When the algorithm is called to layout an item, it knows : the size of the viewport, the offset of the current item (double value between -1/+1), and the number of items contained in the range -1/+1. With some maths, you should be able to do exactly what you want.
