I have more demos related to XSLT generation of SMIL and SVG, that I need to put up, but have yet to gather and publish.
Remember: most of these demos need an XHTML+SMIL capable browser, like IE 5.5 or later. I recommend that you use the latest version (IE6 when I wrote this).
- This page has my working demos that show some ideas with control, including the VCR control of animations.
- Here are the demos that go with the paper "The SMIL 2.0 Timing and Synchronization Model: Using Time in Documents" [MSR-TR-2001-01].
- A nice demo from W3C UK (note the ugly text transitions - animateColor would be smoother, so see the next demo for a fix).
- This page shows how transitions combined with text can look bad, and how they can look good.
- Three demos show how to do timed hyperlinks in which the
links are only sensitive to clicks when they are active. The
first demonstrates a timed image map, the second
<a>elements with timing, and the third shows
<a>elements that also disappear when they are not active.
- A set of advertising demos and a product-sales presentation demo done by real artists (not me). These are still in the syntax of the HTML+TIME submission, and should be updated to XHTML+SMIL syntax.
There are also demos embedded in some of my presentations. Several of the more recent talks are generated using XSLT - if you just view the source, you can see the original xml. If you have the IE XML tools installed, you can then right click and view the XSLT output.
- This simple demo is intended to show why you want to avoid scaling and rotating text, or if you must, to make the scale and rotation animations run quickly.
