How to change SKScene with a transition: presentScene()

Swift version: 5.0

Paul Hudson    @twostraws   

You can change between SpriteKit scenes by calling the presentScene() method on your SKView. This can be called either just with a new scene, or with a new scene and a transition animation to use, depending on the effect you want. Here's an example with a transition:

let scene = NewGameScene(fileNamed: "NewGameScene")!
let transition = SKTransition.moveIn(with: .right, duration: 1)
self.view?.presentScene(scene, transition: transition)

There are several beautiful transition types you can try, with the SKTransition.doorway(withDuration: 1) transition looking particularly neat.
