3D Parallax effect with CSS, javascript or jQuery

Parallax effect is a long-known and widely used animation effect. Lately, the parallax effect has become a wide-spread and quite a trend element in web design, often referred to as “parallax scrolling”. Internet if full on many great examples of application of this effect in web design. As I planned to create a cool parallax animated background, my first goal was to write the shortest and simplest code to achieve maximum awesomeness! I’ll show you how I did it. In this tutorial, I’ll teach you the simplest parallax scrolling technique. Here, I am going to introduce you, a most flexible/responsive slider i.e. Parallaxfx_DG. It is so easy and useful. I have decided that I will post a page dedicated to this slider with it’s features and API later.

The idea of the parallax effect it in web design is built around giving a page depth by using several layers of images, all moving at different speeds in response to movement of the mouse or mouse scroller, so that a viewer get a full sense of 3D on the page. Parallax scrolling is an interesting technique, where, as you scroll, the background images translate slower than the content in the foreground, creating the illusion of 3D depth. read more @ http://www.css-jquery-design.com/ …

Javascript or jQuery Fullscreen browser window – Html5 technology

The new html5 technology – fullscreen API gives us an easy way to present a web page content in full-screen mode. We are about to give you detailed information about the fullscreen mode. Just try to imagine about all possible advantages which you can get using this technology – full-screen photo albums, videos, and even games. But before we describe this new technology, I have to note that this technology is experimental, and not all the browsers support it.

Animate Full-Page Multiple Background images with fade-in & fade-out effect – jQuery

“How to change multiple background-image of body with effects?” – I think this is a major problem which all designers face. You can fade background colors but not background images. The way to work around this is to have your images as <img> tags and hide them by default display:none;. Give your images position:absolute and z-index:-1 so they act like backgrounds and are behind everything else.

Here’s a quick example of multiple images fading one after the other.

jquery-full-page-animated-background-images

The HTML

Html is very simple. Just add a div with multiple images which you want to animate / change in background with fade effects.

<div id="wrap">
<img class="bgfade" src="http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8526/8668341950_182b74faf2_z.jpg">
<img class="bgfade" src="http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8532/8667337535_6da0a9a261_z.jpg">
<img class="bgfade" src="http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8540/8667244539_d227f8c435_z.jpg">
</div>

The CSS

Now, We will use some CSS Technique which will create an illusion like background-image animation. The way to work around this is to have your images as <img> tags and hide them by default “display:none;”. Give your images “position:absolute” and “z-index:-1” so they act like backgrounds and are behind everything else. Now, set css property of div#wrap which includes these images to “position:fixed” and “top:0; left:0;” so that it will fix with page background.

#wrap{
	position:fixed;; 
	z-index:-1; 
	top:0; 
	left:0; 
	background-color:black
}
#wrap img.bgfade{
	position:absolute;
	top:0;
	display:none;
	width:100%;
	height:100%;
	z-index:-1
}

jQuery

Now, it is java-script’s turn. We will calculate browser window’s height & width. After that we will set width/height of div#wrap to browser so that background cover entire webpage. Now we have to animate our images. We will simple use function of fadeIn() and fadeOut() in images for this.

$(window).load(function(){
$('img.bgfade').hide();
var dg_H = $(window).height();
var dg_W = $(window).width();
$('#wrap').css({'height':dg_H,'width':dg_W});
function anim() {
    $("#wrap img.bgfade").first().appendTo('#wrap').fadeOut(1500);
    $("#wrap img").first().fadeIn(1500);
    setTimeout(anim, 3000);
}
anim();})
$(window).resize(function(){window.location.href=window.location.href})

Updated

I have updated the script. Actually, after re-sizing the browser we have to update the width/height of div#wrap. So, I am going to reload this window, when ever browser will re-size. It will help to re-calculate all these and refresh the animation. Div#wrap will re-size according to browser window and play animation smoothly.

<link rel='stylesheet' id='fluid_dg-css'  href='css/fluid_dg.css' type='text/css' media='all'>

Now some customization:

.fluid_container {
			margin: 0 auto;
			width: 100%;
		}

 <script type='text/javascript' src='http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.6.2.min.js'></script>
    <script type='text/javascript' src='Scripts/jquery.mobile.customized.min.js'></script>
    <script type='text/javascript' src='Scripts/jquery.easing.1.3.js'></script> 
    <script type='text/javascript' src='Scripts/fluid_dg.min.js'></script>

After adding all these library we have to initiate the Responsive_DG_Slider.

jQuery(document).ready(function(){
		jQuery(function(){			
			jQuery('#fluid_dg_wrap_1').fluid_dg({thumbnails: true,height:"25%"});
		}); })

Full-Screen Responsive jQuery Banner Slider – Responsive_DG_Slider

After working on responsive or flexy designs, I found some serious issues about fixed width in most of images/banner sliders which I have got online. So, I thought to develop a liquid/responsive images slider with different transition effects. Here, I am going to introduce you, a most flexible/responsive slider i.e. Responsive_DG_Slider. It is so easy and useful. I have decided that I will post a page dedicated to this slider with it’s features and API later.

Here I am showing It’s full screen responsive image slider functionality powered by the fantastic java-script library jQuery. With a nice and simple design it adjusted automatically to the width of your browser screen. Image sliders add life and interactivity to your web contents. But creating an image slider from scratch is not that easy. You need some good programming skills to create your own slider. If you are not the programmer or you just don’t want to re-invent the wheel, Responsive_DG_Slider is for you. Previously, I have already developed a very simple and useful slider i. e. jQuery – DG_Slider.
jquery-responsive-slider

Configuring Your Slider

Configuring the slider is very simple, you just need to place your images and call the initializer function and your slider is ready. Here’s how you can do this for full-screen.

The HTML

For develping a Full-Screen Background image slider you need to create the necessary HTML markups for your slider and then add references to necessary script files.

<div class="fluid_container">
        <div class="fluid_dg_wrap fluid_dg_emboss pattern_1 fluid_dg_white_skin" id="fluid_dg_wrap_4">
            <div data-thumb="slides/thumbs/1.jpg" data-src="slides/1-1280x720.jpg"></div>
            <div data-thumb="slides/thumbs/2.jpg" data-src="slides/2-1280x720.jpg"></div>
            <div data-thumb="slides/thumbs/3.jpg" data-src="slides/3-1280x720.jpg"></div>
            <div data-thumb="slides/thumbs/4.jpg" data-src="slides/4-1280x720.jpg"></div>
            <div data-thumb="slides/thumbs/5.jpg" data-src="slides/5-1280x720.jpg"></div>
            <div data-thumb="slides/thumbs/6.jpg" data-src="slides/6-1280x720.jpg"></div>
        </div>
</div>

The CSS

We have to link it’s default css file.

<link rel='stylesheet' id='fluid_dg-css'  href='css/fluid_dg.css' type='text/css' media='all'>

After attaching the default CSS, now we will customize it according to our requirement.

.fluid_container {
	bottom: 0; height: 100%; left: 0; position: fixed; right: 0; top: 0; z-index: 0;
}
#fluid_dg_wrap_4 {
	bottom: 0; height: 100%; left: 0;
	margin-bottom: 0 !important;
	position: fixed; right: 0; top: 0;
}
.fluid_dg_bar {
	z-index: 2;
}
.fluid_dg_prevThumbs, 
.fluid_dg_nextThumbs, 
.fluid_dg_prev, 
.fluid_dg_next, 
.fluid_dg_commands, 
.fluid_dg_thumbs_cont {
	background: #222;
	background: rgba(2, 2, 2, .7);
}
.fluid_dg_thumbs {
	margin-top: -100px; position: relative; z-index: 1;
}
.fluid_dg_thumbs_cont {
	border-radius: 0;
	-moz-border-radius: 0;
	-webkit-border-radius: 0;
}
.fluid_dg_overlayer {
	opacity: .1;
}

The jQuery

First, We have to add some jQuery library.

    <script type='text/javascript' src='http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.6.2.min.js'></script>
    <script type='text/javascript' src='Scripts/jquery.mobile.customized.min.js'></script>
    <script type='text/javascript' src='Scripts/jquery.easing.1.3.js'></script> 
    <script type='text/javascript' src='Scripts/fluid_dg.min.js'></script>

After adding all these library we have to initiate the Responsive_DG_Slider. In this slider’s API we have several customization options. Here we are customizing some options according to this full-screen slider.

jQuery(document).ready(function(){
	jQuery(function(){			
		jQuery('#fluid_dg_wrap_4').fluid_dg({height: 'auto', loader: 'bar', pagination: false, thumbnails: true, hover: false, opacityOnGrid: false, imagePath: ''});
	}); 
})

Done!

CSS3 3D effect, Shine text with css3 keyframe animation, Scrolling Page Background with jQuery – Happy New Year

On the occasion of New Year 2013, I thought to wish this festival by creating a nice webpage greeting. So, today I created this greeting card using 3D  and shining text effect with the help of CSS3, and scrolling background with JavaScript. I hope you all will enjoy this holiday as well as my web-card too :) .

Introduction

Greeting, today we are going to make a scrolling background effect. This script will move the background of any html tag, either vertically or horizontally. I used this script in one of my greeting card too which has a blue sky with clouds and it makes the whole website came alive. I think that’s pretty impressive. In this card you will find texts with different CSS effects like: 3D emboss, continuous spotlight shine effect, text shadow etc.

3d-shine-text-css3-scrolling-background-happy-new-year

The CSS

I have Used multiple text-shadows to create 3D text on any HTML element. No extra HTML, no extra headaches, just awesomesauce.
Works in the latest builds of Safari, Chrome, Firefox, and Opera.

h1 {
  margin:1.2em auto;
  font: bold 100px/1 "Helvetica Neue", Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;
  color: #fff;
  text-shadow: 0 1px 0 #cccccc, 0 2px 0 #c9c9c9, 0 3px 0 #bbbbbb, 0 4px 0 #b9b9b9, 0 5px 0 #aaaaaa, 0 6px 1px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.1), 0 0 5px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.1), 0 1px 3px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.3), 0 3px 5px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.2), 0 5px 10px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.25), 0 10px 10px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.2), 0 20px 20px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.15);
  -webkit-transition: .2s all linear;
}

Text shine Effect created with WebKit-specific CSS3 properties. You’ll need Safari or Chrome to enjoy key-frame animation.

p.shine{
    font-size: 3em;
    margin: 0 auto; padding:0;
    width: 95%;
}
.shine{
    background: #222 -webkit-gradient(linear, left top, right top, from(#ccc), to(#fff), color-stop(1, #f0f)) 0 0 no-repeat;
    background-size: 400px; -webkit-background-size: 400px; 
    -moz-background-size: 400px; -o-background-size: 400px;    
    color: rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.7);	
    background-clip: text; -webkit-background-clip: text; 
        -moz-background-clip: text; -o-background-clip: text;	
	-webkit-animation: shine 2s infinite;
	-moz-animation: shine 2s infinite;
	-o-animation: shine 2s infinite;
	-ms-animation: shine 2s infinite;
	animation: shine 2s infinite; 
}

@-webkit-keyframes shine{
    0%{background-position: top left;}
    100%{background-position: top right;}
}
@-moz-keyframes shine{
    0%{background-position: top left;}
    100%{background-position: top right;}
}
@-o-keyframes shine{
    0%{background-position: top left;}
    100%{background-position: top right;}
}
@keyframes shine{
    0%{background-position: top left;}
    100%{background-position: top right;}
}

For page background I used cloud in png format.

body{background:url(bg_clouds.png) 0 0}

The HTML

<h1>Happy New Year 2013</h1>
<p class="shine">The New Year is the time of unfolding horizons and the realization of dreams, may you rediscover new strength and garner faith with you, and be able to rejoice in the simple pleasures that life has to offer and put a brave front for all the challenges that may come your way.<br>
Wishing you a lovely New Year..</p>

The JavaScript – jQuery

We have to add jquery library in body first, after that we animate our page background with css background-position properties. I always prefer to use JavaScript files before close of body tag.

<script src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-latest.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">var scrollSpeed = 70; 
    var current = 0;
    function bgscroll(){
        current -= 1;   
        // move the background with backgrond-position css properties
        $('body').css("backgroundPosition", 1 ? current+"px 0" : "0 " + current+"px");   
    }
     setInterval(bgscroll, scrollSpeed);   </script>

Happy New Year!

I hope you like the result and don’t hesitate to share your thoughts about it. Thanks for reading!
