built-in transitions bring visual excitement to any project

Opus includes over 1000 transitions for text and objects with full control of the timing and speed. Each object can have a transition for when it appears on screen (On Show) and another for when it disappears (On Hide). The transitions are divided into different categories and range from the simple to the complex.

Here are just some of the options available.


From a simple fade to a diagonal wipe, fades are probably the most commonly-used transitions alongside Scroll. Which is why we've also combined the two.

Reveals & Blinds

Another popular tranistions style is the reveal and again we've also combined this with fade. Reveal your object from left, right, up, down or split into blinds.

Scroll and Scroll Page

Scroll Page simply brings the object on or off the screen in the direction chosen whilst Scroll will do the same but restricts the scroll to the frame which contains the object.

Shapes and Shape Explosions

Use circle, diamond, triangle and star shapes to uncover your object either as single shapes or in a variety of combinations including grids and explosions.


Zoom your object in from a variety of directions - including centre out.


For Windows publications we also have a wide range of special transitions such as Ghost and are also provided with directional variants.

Text Animations

Opus also includes a range of animations to bring text onto the screen. The animation can be applied to each letter, to each word or to whole lines. The opotions include many of those provided in transitions but with several special additions.
