SMIL Transitions

Previous Next

Transitions can generate effects like "fading" and "wiping" to elements.

Transitions Belongs To SMIL 2.0

Transitions are new in SMIL 2.0. Transitions were not a part of the SMIL 1.0 specification.

Internet Explorer 6 supports transitions based on the SMIL 2.0 specification. Transitions are implemented with the element <transitionfilter>.


The <transitionfilter> element can have several attributes. The most common are:

Attribute Description Example
type Defines the type of transition filter (see transition filter list) type="clockWipe"
begin Defines when the transition should begin begin="0s"
mode Defines the transition mode mode="in"
from Defines the starting value of the transition from="0.2"
to Defines the ending value of the transition to="0.8"

Transition Filters

The following transition filters can be used:

fade, barnDoorWipe, barWipe, clockWipe, ellipseWipe, fanWipe, irisWipe, pushWipe, slideWipe, snakeWipe, spiralWipe, starWipe

Example: Displaying Transitions

<html xmlns:t="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:time">
<?import namespace="t" implementation="#default#time2">
<style>.t {behavior: url(#default#time2)}</style>

<t:transitionfilter targetelement="keyb"
begin="keyb.begin" dur="2s" />

<img id="keyb" class="t" src="pic_keyb.jpg" dur="4s"
width="128" height="107" />


In the example above the image will be displayed for 4 seconds. The transition filter will use 2 second to "clockWipe" the image into its place.

note  You must run Internet Explorer 6 for the sample to function.
