How does the new honeycomb transition look?

So I have been playin around lately with Adobe Flash CS4 Pro and after a day of crazy hair pulling I think I have a nice transition that kicks a plain slide show any day. I needed something more blingy (lol) to show the pirate ship images.

Sorry to all those on anything but High speed internet but that is what my site is geared to and designed for.

Interesting way to combine Pirate ships and Honey Bears huh? (lol)

Thanks a bunch Alex... I bought the FLA transition for $4 but as I never tore into a Flash like that before I had to download a free (fully functional) 30 day Adobe Flash CS4 Pro program and learn how to edit the thing by playin around and makin a mess of the thing dozens of times before I got it right. I linked to Flash den somewhere on my site but as it links to my account there I won't directly post it here...

I love it also Ed,

You won't believe it, but one of those pesky bee's detached from your
banner and was chasing my cursor all around the page.
One would swear I had a flower for a cursor !!

Gave you an idea now didn't I buddy ?
I know.... you thought of it already ;-)

You dirty rat LOL... After reading your reply I was actually going to put a flower as my cursor but then sanity returned when I thought to myself "Is a flower going to make my site too much?" LOL the answer I thought was yes...

So I decided to hold off for now... Thanks anyway man...

Hey Mr. Ed

It looks very cool and the honeycomb effect definitely blends in well with your site theme. Well done! If possible, I would just slow the transition just a smidge. I find that I don't have enough time to really look at the photo before the honeycomb kicks in.

Thanks LittleHun I wish that I could slow it down but as it is its over 500kb and every frame ads kb's

I will re-add the frames later and give it another try with the additions. Hmmm another 100kb might not mean all that much. We will see...

I truly see your point about adding time to look but the ship in the images is not the product and only an example of what I am going to build. When the time comes that I have the finished product then I will make the slide show with more frames and on a page of its own to allow for ample time to look at the detail.

I did add the frames and it was just way too big... :(

Here's a thought... don't know if it's possible though.. what if you reversed the honeycomb effect so that it starts to strong on the outside and fades it way in towards the middle? This may give a bit more time to see the image before the effect fully takes place... whereas the other way, you have to wait until the honeycomb has faded to the outside before seeing the photo? I don't know if that would make any difference?
