JPEG Saver config — Transitions dialog
The transitions dialog allows you to choose which are enabled, how quickly they run, and set up presets for more easily switching between selections.
This drop-down box displays the current preset, and contains the list of other defined presets. To add a new preset, type its name in the box and choose “Save” from the preset menu button.
The name of the last preset loaded remains in the box after changes have been made to the transition selection and speeds.
Preset menu button
This button opens a menu containing these save, load, delete and reset options:
- Save — saves the details in the transitions list, along with the speed and random options to the named preset. If the name in the list is an existing preset it will be overwritten.
- Load — loads the selected preset, updating the transitions list, speed slider and random checkbox.
- Delete — deletes the selected preset.
- Reset — deletes all user-defined presets and restores the list of predefined presets.
The list of presets maintained using these options is also displayed on the main tab for quickly switching between configurations. Note: the main tab will display “Not a preset” in its presets list when the selected options do not match a preset, but the transitions dialog presets list will display the last loaded preset whether it matches the current selection or not.
This list displays all the transitions JPEG Saver has available, along with a checkbox to enable and disable each transition and a second column showing the speed settings for that transition.
This is a standard list view, so pressing a letter key will jump to the first entry beginning with that letter, the arrow keys will move the selection, holding shift or control will allow selecting multiple transitions and control-A will select all entries.
Selecting an entry will populate the controls underneath, and double-clicking will toggle the entry's checkbox.
If you have updated JPEG Saver and there have been new transitions added you will see an extra column in this list, with “New” next to the transitions you didn't have before.
Enable all/none/some toggle
This three-state checkbox toggles the checkboxes for all the transitions between enable, disabled, and however many were enabled to start with.
Custom speed checkbox
Enables custom speed settings for the selected transitions, or turns custom settings back off.
Transition preview button
Opens and closes the transition preview window to the right of the dialog. The preview updates with the settings for the selected transition.
Transition speed slider
Sets the speed of transitions. The default speed is 100%, smaller values are slower and higher values are faster. The blue area on the slider is the random speed range, which is fixed for all transitions using the default speed.
To set the range of a random custom speed, move the slider to somewhere in the range before enabling the “Random” checkbox, then drag the slider to set the two ends of the range. To clear the range, toggle the “Random” checkbox again.
Random speed checkbox
Enables using a random speed. The range of random speeds is fixed to 50%-200% for transitions using the default speed settings, though custom speed transitions can have their own ranges set.
