Cover Flow with Carousel

I am trying to combine a cover flow look with a Carousel. I want both elements to move together as you scroll.

I attempted to use 2 of Walt’s Carousels with 1 set of buttons, but it does not work (at least how I configured it).

Is this possible with just Carousel?

I have the following two links. The first has the top ‘cover flow’ working and the bottom panes static. The second has the top and bottom panes grouped and then grouped with the buttons. The results are interesting.

You can have more than one set of controls (forward/back or tabs) for
a single Carousel, but you cannot have more than one Carousel
controlled by a single set of controls. This is by design.

I am sure I could hack it to do what you want, but this is well
outside of the original plan for this Action – there was actually a
broken version that did what you describe, except it made it
impossible to have multiple independent Carousels on a page.

I was afraid of that.

Anyone have any suggestions as an alternative? I don’t need to have a cover flow to navigate the panes, but something more than buttons or tabs.

Thanks.

You could make both of the areas part of one carousel, and then your
controls would move both of them at once. Since your page is laid out
in layers, this won’t be difficult to do. Instead of there being two
different carousel elements with a common control, there would only be
one.

I thought of that, but in this case the two elements are different widths and I think it won’t look right. I might try to see how it works, but it is quite a bit of work.

Hopefully there is another elegant solution that will present itself.

Thanks.
