Open Source: 3D View Transitions Library Including Cloth And Flip Style Transitions

Some time ago I mentioned the excellent open source Leaves library that enables creation of a reader with iBooks style page transitions from a text, image or PDF file, and more recently the FlipView library which provides an open source example of a Flipboard style magazine reader app.  I’ve received some feedback asking for more of the same – specifically in the way of cool 3D transitions.

Recently I came across an open source library that enables a collection of 3D transitions by using OpenGL ES. Here’s a video demonstrating the transitions currently in the library:

The library is HMGLTransitions from Hyperbolic Magnetism.

You can find the Github with source code for the project here:

Very cool stuff if you’ve been looking for custom 3D transitions – and the code itself makes a great example on how to create these transitions yourself – just have a look in the transitions folder.
