Fade in / Fade out Slide transition

Hi,

Could we please have a simple Fade in / Fade out slide transition option? Unless I can't see it.

Thanks

Peter

Hi Peter,

The slide itself can't have a fade because it's not a graphics object like the slide contents. All the slides are positioned on a single large HTML page viewed through a hole in an overlay. When you transition between slides the page is moved around behind the overlay. So transitioning the slide wouldn't achieve what you want here.

To achieve a fade in/out for the whole slide, position a rectangular shape over the entire slide, using the color you want to have for the opaque state. Then fade that in and out as required, without moving the slide. 8)
