    Hi, is this effect for the NextGEN Gallery slideshow, or for one of the add-ons for NextGEN? Could you post a link with an example of this transition?

    The transitions for Meteor Slides are powered by the jQuery Cycle Plugin, so I don’t have much control over the transitions. You can preview all of the transitions here.

    i havent added any addons.

    I thinks its there in nextgen by default. If the image size is big and slideshow (poweref by jw flash player) windows is small, then its showing a part of the image and slowly panning to reveal the rest like movie camera pan.

    very cool effect

    i found it !!

    the option in nextgen is “Allow slow zooming effect”

    if i enable this, then i get that slow pan effect, else if just shows the full images as slideshow

    how can i have transparent background for PNG files?

    I’ll check out the slow zooming effect and see if this Flash effect is something that could be recreated in jQuery.

    You know, I have not tried transparent PNGs as slides, I will test that out and get back to you on that!

    thanks a lot

    actually by having slight transparent edges or feathered edges, my slides will blend in more with the colour of the gallery and not look like patch work, as they r now.

    also are the slides pre-loaded in the background? cause pngs of this size 750×150 can get pretty heavy- 200-300kb.

    I tried a transparent PNG as a slide and it worked fine for me.

    But it could depend on the nature of the slide and what it is being overlaid onto.

    The slides are not preloaded, so I would take care not to make the file size too large.

    If you are just trying to blend the slides into your background with a gradient or something, I’d suggest doing that in an image editor before adding the slides. This will give you a higher quality result, and then you can use JPG slides which will be much smaller in size.

    ok. Thanks. What about the pan effect? Find something ofr it?

    Haven’t had a chance to look into that yet, but I am hoping to extend the functionality of the plugin to enable custom transitions like this.
