I am looking for a particular transition effect when moving between slides. I would like to have the impression that two slides are superimposed and that the first moves smoothly to the right to reveal progressively the next slide. Any idea?

maybe not directly in beamer, but try impressive impressive.sourceforge.net –  Martin H Jul 5 '11 at 20:56
    
@Martin H: Thank you for the recommendation. I will have a look at it as soon as possible. –  Marco Jul 6 '11 at 6:43

PDF offers a standardized way for transitions and these work in also in Beamer Latex. You can use them in Latex between \begin{frame} and \end{frame} and they should work with common PDF viewers.

                   Horizontal blinds pulled away
\transblindshorizontal

                   Vertical blinds pulled away
\transblindsvertical

                   Move to center from all sides
       \transboxin

                   Move to all sides from center
      \transboxout

                   Slowly dissolve what was shown before
\transdissolve

                   Glitter sweeps in specified direction
\transglitter

                   Sweeps two vertical lines in
\transslipverticalin

                   Sweeps two vertical lines out
\transslipverticalout

                   Sweeps two horizontal lines in
\transhorizontalin

                   Sweeps two horizontal lines out
\transhorizontalout

                   Sweeps single line in specified direction
\transwipe

                   Show slide specified number of seconds
\transduration{2}

There are some more transition effects, introduced in PDF 1.5: \transcover, \transfade, \transpush, \transuncover. These are already implemented in beamer, but not yet documented. –  diabonas Sep 19 '12 at 15:30
