Let's slide in text from off the page. Text that appears to slide in from the edge of the page no longer takes scads of digital x/y plot points and mathematical algorithms. The
Fx.Slide() class takes care of those particulars and allows us to focus on a fancy presentation. All this goodness without excess overhead in the memory layer means a win-win situation for us and our clients...as well as a win for their clients, the end-line consumers of the work.
Choose some text and formatting to use before beginning. Mark up the page as if the block of text is already on the page. Choose the effects transition to use and fire off the effect with a slight delay so that users do not miss it.
