Xpdf does not support dissolves, and such transitions.

However, in fullscreen mode it *does* support simple overlays. Thus, the
usual method (adopted by most pdf files) of adding material or changing
material on a slide (by creating a new page with minimal changes) does
work. During the presentation this will appear as if material is added
to or removed from the same page.
