Working with Classic Transitions

Classic transitions are the old non-Realtime transitions from previous incarnations of Liquid Edition. They need to be rendered (in the background) before you can view them, which should put them at an immediate disadvantage. But because rules restrict the way Realtime transitions work, non-Realtime effects have some additional tricks they can pull from their hypothetical sleeves.

To apply a Classic transition

  • Open the Classic Transition FX folder and apply a classic filter (2D Editor in this example) after following the instructions above for adding a Realtime transitions. Double-clicking the transition will open the editor. Here, you immediately see a different interface and a different set of parameters to alter (Figure 8.45).

    Figure 8.45. A Classic transition has several additional parameters the user can control.

Full-Screen Mode

One clear advantage of working with Classic transitions is that you can toggle full-screen mode on by clicking the Full-Screen Mode button . Doing so allows the Classic editor to take over the screen completely (Figure 8.46).

You can return the editor to normal size by clicking the Full-Screen Mode button a second time.
