Transition FX Action (Pro Only)

13th of February, 2013

Type of Action: Item Action (to use it, select a layer item and go to Item>Actions to choose the Action from the list).

What the Action can do: This Action lets you do the following:
  • It lets you apply some effects which can make an item appear or disappear on the page in a number of different ways.
This Action can apply different types of effect to make an item appear or disappear, and it can be set for the effect to be triggered on page load or on trigger (ie, by using a rollover item to make it start working).

Note: You need to apply this Action to the trigger (and not the item you want to make appear or disappear) and then choose the item you want to appear or disappear in the Item menu inside the Actions palette.

To use the Action, draw a layer item on your page (either HTML or graphic) and then, with the item selected, go to Item>Actions and choose Transition FX from the list. With the item selected you can see the options in the Actions palette.
