I would like a slow fade transition (8 seconds) but have the delay short (1 second.) when I set this up in options (ie. timer delay of 1000 and speed delay of 8000) it does not give me the expected / desired effect - there are an additional 8 seconds added to the slide delay. Tried various options with sync/no sync and wait/no wait for page load. If transition time is less than delay it seems to work properly.

I have tried some patches:
#1236004: Continous rotation and easing effect for slides transitions
#1424090: timeoutFn advanced option does not work - needs to return result value

It WILL work if I apply these patches and set easing to linear.

This is where it will not work:
