DirectTransition3D Xtra is a collection of high quality, hardware accelerated, platform independent transitions for Macromedia Director, Authorware and Shockwave.

DirectTransition3D Xtra Set I features the following customizable transitions:

  • Accordion: Simulates the before image folding or unfolding to reveal the after image.

  • Bubbles: Simulates the before image bubbling and popping to reveal the after image.

  • Curtain: Simulates a curtain opening or closing to reveal the after image.

  • Flipboards: Simulates boards with the before image on the front and the after image on the back flipping.

  • Flush: Simulates the before image flushing to reveal the after image.

  • Fractal Fade: Simulates the before image randomly and unevenly fading into the after image.

  • Fractal Morph I: Simulates the before image randomly morphing into the after image with an unclearly defined center.

  • Fractal Morph II: Simulates the before image randomly morphing into the after image with a clearly defined center.

  • Fracture: Simulates the before image exploding into spinning fractures to reveal the after image.

  • Headline: Simulates a movie style spinning newspaper headline moving towards the viewer with the after image projected on it.

  • Layers: Simulates the after image zooming in layers.

  • Page Turn: Simulates the before image turning to reveal the after image.

  • Peel: Simulates the before image peeling or unpeeling to reveal the after image.

  • X Door: Simulates the before image opening or closing in an X shaped door to reveal the after image.

Virtually unlimited variations can be created from each transition. Many transitions feature real time random generation so that the same transition will never look exactly the same twice.

The Xtra is Shockwave safe, so it can also be used with Shockwave 7 and above and when Director safety features are turned on.

An auto downloadable Shockwave safe package of the Xtra is also available. It is a compressed, small sized (about 150K) version of the Xtra that can be downloaded automatically from a web site to the user's local machine whenever needed, and once installed provides Shockwave applications on the web with the transitions that the Xtra provides.

The Xtra supports 8 bit color and higher.

The Xtra is available for Director 5 and above, Authorware 4 and above, and is compatible with Windows 9X and newer (including 2000, ME, NT, XP) as well as MacOS 8, 9 and X.
