Fly In Fly Out Animation
Nov 13, 2013
Tim Slade does from really beautiful work, and he recently posted an idea for a seamless transition between slides. I love the idea of having the shapes fly out after the user clicks Continue, but I didn't love the idea of duplicating each slide. Sadly, the folks I work with are never finished with a module, so it would double my work every time they have a revision. After reflecting, I came up with a solution.
I added a layer, triggered by an off-slide shape, that pauses the base layer. That trigger only contains the word "continue." This closes the Continue Layer, which allows the exit animations to go. It doesn't let the word "continue" have any animation to it, unfortunately, and you do need to do a little tinkering in having the continue trigger come in at the right time, after the entrance animation finishes but before the exit animation starts. But depending on how you work and your clients' demands, this might work better for some folks.
I'm attaching a little proof of concept, nothing fancy. Anyone see a fatal flaw, or something that could be improved? (I didn't spend much time timing the entrance of the continue layer. Ideally it would come in right after the entrance animation finishes.
