You can choose from the standard transition types, “slide”, “fade”, “flip”, or from the extended transition types, “cover”, “coverv”, “dissolve”, “reveal”, “revealv”, “scaleIn”, “scaleOut”, “slidev”, “swirl”, “zoomIn”, “zoomOut”. If “none” is specified, transition occurs immediately without animation.

If ‘#’, returns immediately without transition.
