The SmartSlide MCTE Pattern is designed to create transitions with an overlapping effect. The pattern can be used for both static images/movie clips and dynamic content to create show, hide, transitionTo and transitionFrom transitions. It can also be used as a transition effect for Loader Pro V3.

In case the transition type is transitionTo or transitionFrom, the two movie clips must have the same dimensions and positions. The pattern doesn't support rotated movie clips.

Important! In order to use this MCTE V3 pattern, you need to have the MCTE V3 component too, since it is the component that handles the transitions. You need at least the 3.1.0 version of MCTE V3, you can purchase MCTE V3 here. If the MCTE that you already have is not running with this pattern you need to redownload it from - my account - my downloads area. Also you may want to order the Loader Pro V3 too, along with the MCTE and this pattern.


ActionScript: 2.0, 3.0

Working with Custom Patterns

The MCTE internal API allows us to further develop and sell patterns separately, all you have to do in order to use them as patterns for the MCTE instances, is to drag them inside your project library and use their name as values for the customPattern parameter of the MCTE.

As stated before, we sell patterns that are not initially included inside the MCTE. You can purchase those patterns without the MCTE, but they will be useless without it.

We also do develop patterns for direct customers, who want a special custom developed pattern for a specific transition. In order to get a custom developed pattern just send us an email.

Clouds Pattern Description

MCTE Transition Types

Supports show/hide (A) and transitionTo/transitionFrom (C) transitions. Working with Loader Pro V3, supports MCTE and MCTEfade loader transitionTypes.

The gain parameter represents the blur amount while the target clips are sliding. The default value is 100.
The tweenDuration parameter is used to set the duration of a square transition; it represents a number of frames.

  • customParam1:String - the instanceName of the second clip when the transition type is transitionTo or transitionFrom
  • customParam2:String (numerical value) - the measure of the overlapping expressed in percentage. Default:0
  • customParam3:String ("true" or "false") - if it's true, the used bitmaps will be cleared at the end of the transition. Default:false
