- Click on each transition to preview it (1). These are originally set for 2 seconds.
- Go to Transition tab (2) >> 3D transitions (3) >> drag and drop your new choice to the old transitions (4).
- If you want to use one transition for the whole slide, click Apply to All (5).
- Right-click on each transition to change the duration time and transition mode.
Step 2: Apply 3D special effects
Go to Animation tab (6), SmartSHOW offers you different types of effects that that polish your photos in just one click. Select your favorite, then drag and drop it to the photo(s) you want to have this effect (7).
- Click Random Effects if you want SmartSHOW chooses effects for you (8).

Step 4: Discover the 3D camera
One of the unique features of SmartSHOW is the 3D camera which enables you to apply animation to objects to the whole slides. Add keyframes the same way you did in the layers animation step. The settings you can adjust are as follows: apply zoom in or zoom out, experiment with the rotation angle (both simple and 3D), and of course, adjust the initial and the final position of the “camera eye”.
