The 1.6 release saw the dawn of 3d capabilities in 5ml for supporting browsers. For the next major release -sporting the 2.0 tag- we have decided to expand upon that and bring new “weapons” to add to your widget armory.
Introducing 3D Carousel, a widget that helps you design a full fledged, true 3D carousel with just a few clicks. Drag the widget on your stage, use the handles to determine the size of the carousel’s panels, adjust the spacing between them, remove or add more panels and then drag any widget that you want in the panels to create your views.
Editing the carousel in 5ml.
Feel like making an image or video carousel in a snap? Just select all of the images or videos you want from the asset library and drop them on the carousel. The assets will be gracefully placed and positioned in the empty panels, and if they are more than the available panels, the carousel will create more for you to compensate.
Choose whether you want the carousel to rotate freely or snap onto panes, select the orientation flavor, vertical or horizontal, adjust the overflow and the visibility of the rest of the panes and you’re ready to start spinning through the panes with your mouse or your finger on your mobile phone.
Keep only two panes, and the carousel transforms into a flip card. Adjust the 3D properties of the widgets inside the panels, and add variety to how your carousel looks.
