I needed a component that would work in my slideshow component and give a decent crossfade while letting the user know that something was going on. I used TweenLite for the tweening, and it works pretty well. It dispatches an ‘imageLoaded’ event when the image swap has completed. I needed this so that the slideshow timer can resume. It pauses when the image starts loading because of various image sizes/connection speeds. Pretty simple, but it is a lot nicer than the harsh transition (or lack of) in the current slideshow.
