I have built a new plugin for AMS to perform something what looks like a page turn, like discussed in another topic here recently. This is the first version, maybe I have an idea on how to improve this later. For now, please have a look at the example project, and tell me what you think. This is my first transition plugin, please be kind.

For those who are interested in using the plugin, please fetch use this installer (http://www.mindquake.com.br/files/ams/UtilitiesSetup.exe).

For those who are interested in using the plugin, please fetch the zip and place the contents in the Plugins\Transitions folder of your AMS installation.

It works nice, one question though: why does it start my VNC Media player while the page is being flipped?:P

Try the second demo, where this should not happen. I am removing the first demo to avoid further confusion...

Very nice, thanks Ulrich,

It got me thinking that it would be nice to have a means of controlling the speed of transitions , as far as I can tell it varies with the complexity of the page.

Hello,

I have made a modification to the transition plugin, and I believe that now the transition is a little bit smoother than before, as there should be less distortion (in theory, at least).

For those who are interested, please fetch the updated plugin and demo project from the attachments below.

You can set the speed in the "TransitionSettings" dialog. You find this item on the Page Properties... If you increase the step size, it will be faster, for example.

I believe the speed of the transition depends mainly on the size of the page size, and the processing power of your computer.

I don't know what to say - I looked in there several times !!

Yes the new version is smoother by the way.

Here an additional update. I noticed that when setting certain step values there stayed a bar visible in the middle of the screen which only disappeared at the end of the transition. This should now be fixed. Please advise if there seems to be any residual issue with this transition.

The current version of the page transition can be found on my site (http://www.mindquake.com.br/transitions/turn).

I had noticed the line, but since it was in the middle I thought it was by design. Looked like the middle of the book if you know what I mean. It has gone with that version anyway (it may just be me but it also seems even smoother).
