In addition to basic transitions that occur after the video ends or involve simple gestures, you can modify the transition logic to fine-tune when and how transitions take place. For example, you can create immediate transitions, transitions by counter value, at a specific time of playing a scene, or randomize multiple transitions from the same scene.

Depending on your demo design, you can also add conditionals to transitions. For example, you can create transitions that occur or are evaluated at specific times (specified as the number of after and before seconds), set triggers to perform logic based on user gestures, or use counters to define the “if X, then Y” logic for multiple transitions based on the counter values. For example, see Conditional Logic in Actions and Transitions.

You can also combine different transition types, for example, triggers and randomized transitions, to achieve the desired demo flow. You can make certain transitions immediate, or wait till the video finishes playing and set triggers in the meantime to use them upon completion of the video.

Ultimately, to avoid crowding and overcomplicating individual scenes, you can designate separate scenes solely to control the transition logic in your demo. These reusable scenes never appear on the screen in the demo but rather serve as a “backstage control center.” They are known as Logic-Only scenes.  

Note: In Studio, usually there are more ways of defining the desired transition logic than one. Sometimes it’s a matter of personal preference. As your expertise grows, you will be able to make your choices with confidence. In the meantime, use the provided use cases as practice exercises rather than prescriptions on how to do things.
