Chapter 25. Filters and Transitions > Transition Filter Overview

25.3. Transition Filter Overview

In addition to the standard static filters that have already been covered in this chapter, Microsoft has also introduced a number of “transition” filters. These enable Web authors to create some funky, eye-catching effects when moving from one object on a Web page to another. Many people will be familiar with these types of transitions from television or movies where various editing “wipes” are used to go from one sequence to another. Their effects are pure “eye candy” — they serve no other useful purpose than to catch a viewer's attention, which they are pretty much guaranteed to do.

For those Web developers working on Web sites tailored to versions of Internet Explorer 5.5 and above, there are 17 different transitions, and they are Barn, Blinds, Checkerboard, Fade, GradientWipe, Inset, Iris, Pixelate, RadialWipe, RandomBars, RandomDissolve, Slide, Spiral, Stretch, Strips, Wheels and Zigzag. Using a combination of CSS extensions and JavaScript, it is relatively easy to implement these transitions on a Web page.
