View Full Version : Slide show with dissolving effect

08-28-2006, 06:04 PM

I have created a very simple slide show (www.freezywater-st-georges.enfield.sch.uk) that simply puts images into an array and then rotates them round.

It works fine, but it isn't very "Flash"

I would like to have the images dissolve - ie the current one fades, and the next one begins to appear.

I have done some searches and as yet havn't really found anything that appears to work. I don't just want a cut and paste job - I want to understand!!!

Is there some function that I don't know about that does this? Should I be looking to use dhtml or Flash rather than javascript?

I would really appreciate any pointers

Many thanks in advance

I would look into the scriptaculous library, very easy to use

a fade would be

new Effect.Fade(id);

and appear would be

new Effect.Appear(id)
