    Cameras *Cam = [[Cameras alloc] initWithNibName:nil bundle:nil];
    [self presentModalViewController:Cam animated:YES];

    I saw this snippet of code and i though it would be great to add it as a transition but to no avail i cant get it to work

    [OBJC][UIView beginAnimations:nil context:NULL];
    [UIView setAnimationDuration:5];
    [UIView setAnimationTransition:110 forView:self.view cache:NO];
    [UIView commitAnimations];[/OBJC]

    I don't mean for this to be condescending, but do you know what "modal" means? More specifically, a modal view controller?

    There is a difference between presenting/dismissing a modal view controller and switching views. A world of difference.

    If you're trying to override the way -presentModalViewController animates the view, then a good place to start would be by actually overridding -presentModalViewController.

    Note, presenting a modal view controller doesn's just shoe a view, it also adds a view controller to the stack, etc.

    Alternatively, look at the code you're using. Just do what you are already doing, but use [whatever presentModalViewController:vc animated:NO]

    If you're trying to switch views, then you need to use a container view. Feed the container view to that that animation method I posted that you quoted, remove the current subview if te container and add another subview to the container. It's that simple.
