# Transition Setting

#### Purpose

The transition setting lets you select the default slide transition style for your presentation.

#### Sample Syntax


transition : fade



#### Details

Slideshow settings are activated using a PITCHME.yaml properties file.

Your chosen transition setting is activated by default for all slides within your presentation. To override this default behavior, see slide specific transition override.

GitPitch currently supports the following slide transition styles:

• none (default)
• slide
• fade
• convex
• concave
• zoom

If you do not explicitly set a value for the transition setting your slides will automatically transition using the default transition style - the none transition.

#### Important! Snap Layouts v Slide Transitions

GitPitch supports snap-Layouts that can be used to control the placement of content on any slide. If you use snap-layouts to build your presentations then any slide rendering snapped-content must disable transitions in order to ensure smooth slide rendering.

For further details, including more detailed background and concrete recommendations please see the snap-layout slide transitions guide.

#### Slide Specific Transition Override

See transition shortcut syntax for details on how you can easily override the transition style for individual slides within your presentation.
