As a quick follow-up to my last post, here is another nifty transition. It’s a radial version of the classic “Squish” transition, in that the old image starts to peel away from the center out, to reveal a new image.
Here’s a simple example where I exaggerate the effect a bit to show you how it works - a possible prototype for a dynamic color picker (or something, yeah I’m grasping):
I wanted to go a bit further and mention that you can use any of these transitions within your AIR applications as well, makes for very fun desktop toy..or at least for fun transitions between states of a fun desktop toy, whether it be a cross fade, twist, morph, radial wipe… just experiment!
