I have been delving into more of the “mysteries” of the rotation center and experimenting with new ideas. Some things that seem quite obvious turn out to have some less than obvious aspects to them. So, while an effect may look simple, implementing it is less than simple.
In this set of effects are some called FauxTowers. These are an effect that initially started out as part of my initial 3D transitions. The result of the changes is a significantly different effect that makes the segments look kind of like a tower as they move around the screen. There are 8 variations that bring the next slide onto the screen and 6 variations that move the current slide off the screen to reveal the next slide. These effects make you want more.
Another set of effects are the Tilt n’Slide. There are 4 variations. These particular effects tilt the current slide as a whole or at the center. Upon being tilted, vertical slide segments move up or down the tilted slide to create the next slide. Upon being completed, the slide tilts back to fill the screen. The effect is quite nice at catching your attention.
A final set of effects are built upon panels. One effect, Panel Roll, rotates around the corners of the center panel, dropping panels at the corners and sides of the center panel as it does. Upon being completed, the next slide then resizes to fill the the screen. The next panels effect, Panel Slide, has 3 variations. A panel slides around the screen at an angle. As it moves in line with or perpendicular to the rotated angle, it drops more panels that create the next slide. When the next slide is complete, it rotates and resizes until it fills the screen. The effect is a very compelling way to introduce your next slide.
