Let's start by loading a previously stored clip, such as the one with the 3D animation  rendered with Carrara 4.


Each category of Transitions effect may have a number of options. For example, the transition may yield into a single color, such as the current primary color. It it might be transitioning to an image uch as found in the Swap buffer. In some cases you'll also see the option to transition towards the frames of a stored animation.
There are many Transitions to choose from:
  • Block out
  • Boxes
  • Crosses
  • Doors
  • Fades
  • Push Stripes
  • Pushes
  • Rows/Columns
  • Slide Stripes
  • Slides
  • Stripes/Weaves
  • Threshold Mask
  • Wipes

Take the first one, for example: Block Out


The current animation will be progressively replaced with either another image, or a color, or a stored animation, depending on what is selected.

If you're experimenting, be sure to check the box 'Save Undo' so you can easily reverse the action.

The effect can cause a transition to various colors, images and animations depending on the selected source:

If the Primary color is chosen, the last frame will reach that final color. In this case going to white.




< This animation is a looping Flash version, converted from the AVI file.
In this example, the target is not the primary color, but an image located in an alternate buffer, called the Swap buffer.




< To replay it, right-click the image and select Play (it is also in Flash format here)
You can also select Stored animations as the target clip.

Here's another example: Boxes

You can choose to have the box close from the outside to the center or open from the center out.

And again there are numerous choices for what to transitionto.

Here's an example with the target being the Negative of the animation.
And here's an example with the box closing, and the target of the transition being another clip, namely one of the stored clips.
Here's another example, using the Doors transition effect. In this case opening the door horizontally.
