Create Transition

Used to edit the transition between two template drops.

You can access this tool from the following:

  • Ribbon: Corridors > Create > Transitions split button

A transition is created between templates of different names, as templates generally don't instantaneously change from one template to another. This tool creates the transition by selecting the two templates drops which are adjacent to it. It does not define how to transition between the template drops, which is done in the Edit Transition tool.

If the drop interval is not the equal in the two template drops, the drop interval of the lower stationed template drop is utilized. However, this can be changed in the Transition Properties.


  1. Select the Create Transition tool.

  2. Select the first template drop adjacent to the transition. It does not matter the order in which the two template drops are selected.

  3. Select the second template drop adjacent to the transition. The transition is created (and the corridor has automatically processed). Notice that the transition is drawn the same as a template drop with yellow lines drawn orthogonal to the corridor on the left side at the beginning of the transition and on the right side at the end of the transition (based on stationing).
