line 41 of your html code shows

transition:{effect:"random", duration:5000}

but is should be reading (if you wish for just the fade effect)

transition:{duration:5000}

or

transition:{effect:"fade", duration:5000}

try either one, by manipulatting through the dmx user interferace in DM or directly the html code. should do the trick.

during your random show there is a fade and it is visible as such (at least on my machine)

one more thought, the effects might be less visible in IE8, hope your not using IE6 or IE7! I found the slideshow performance on IE not impressive, it does well though on Chromium based as well as FF3.6+ and Opera.

not sure, but looks like the developers are not checking in over the weekend or otherwise much frequently

I only use iE8. So if it works on other browsers its ok.

Do you know, how I can change the look of the lightbox, if I add it to the slideshow?

that would be strange indeed, however I can confirm that fade effects are not working on IE8!

This flaw should be addressed and and fixed

Hello,

IE does not support opacity property that is used by the fade effect and ALL other modern browsers do.

according to Denis it does work ok in IE6, which is ancient compared to IE8

quote

for the opacity setting to work with both IE7 and IE8, we have to use both. According to Microsoft, we have to list the new extension format first, and then older setting. This in addition to the CSS opacity setting:


-ms-filter: "progidXImageTransform.Microsoft.Alpha(Opacity=0)";
filter: progidXImageTransform.Microsoft.Alpha(Opacity=0);
opacity: 0;

unquote

not to mention that IE<9 has still the largest slice on the browser market and that does not seem to change any time soon
