You can see the slider here: http://www.nlada.org/
I have all of the active slides set to the "fade" transition (there are a number of disabled slides in the slider that don't have transitions applied to them). As you can, there is no transition between slides. They just blink out and the new slide blinks in.
Additionally, a sepearate issue is the width of the pop-up when I edit the slider. Below is a link to a screenshot of what it looks like. As you can see it is much wider than the width of my browser.
Thanks for you help!
