Join Joe Marini for an in-depth discussion in this video Using smooth transitions, part of Learning HTML Canvas.
- [Instructor] In the previous example,…we saw how to build a simple image slide show…using the canvas and an image element.…In this example, we're going to see…how to use smooth transitions…to improve the user experience.…Since this example is going to build on the previous one,…I suggest you watch that video first if you haven't already.…So here in VSCode, I'm going to open up…SlideShowSmooth start.…And the code for this example is very similar…to the previous one.…The main difference is that, instead of just drawing…each image over the previous one,…we need to slowly fade each image in.…
So you'll notice that the init function…is pretty much the same as the previous example.…The code sets up a repeating interval…every few seconds to call the switch image function…which, just as in the previous example,…sets the source attribute of the image placeholder element…to whatever the next image in the array of path names is.…The key difference is that instead of…just drawing the image, we're going to fade it in…by animating the image's opacity value…
