cond (Condition)

This element specifies conditions on time nodes in a timeline. It is used within a list of start condition or list of end condition elements.

[Example: For example, suppose we have a shape with a two second delay after the animation is started.



<p:cond delay="2000"/>




<p:animEffect transition="in" filter="blinds(horizontal)">


<p:cTn id="7" dur="1000"/>


<p:spTgt spid="4"/>
