19.5.41 fade (Fade Slide Transition)

This element describes the fade slide transition effect, which smoothly fades the previous slide either directly to the new slide or first to a black screen and then to the new slide. The rendering of this transition depends upon the attributes specified which have been shown below.

[Example: Consider the following cases in which the “fade” slide transition is applied to a slide, along with a set of attributes. The proper usage and sample renderings are shown below, with the XML fragments preceding the corresponding rendering:

  <p:fade thruBlk="0"/>
  <p:fade thruBlk="1"/>

end example]

[Note: Any rendering shown above is for example purposes only. Exact rendering of any transition is determined by the rendering application. As such, the same transition can have many variations depending on the implementation. end note]
