FADING SLIDESHOW - APPLE

Hi all,

I want to create a slideshow that function’s like this Apple web page does: (beautiful design BTW)

However, the main ‘gallery image’ that I am trying to target is to contain a html item/graphic item and an mp3 file.

An example page can be found here:

http://www.cmlmarketing.com/zyzagarus/characters.html

The main image I am trying to target is the “SCROLL” to the right, which will be targeted via each character button. To reveal the individual character summary and audio extract respectively.

Thus, once a character tab is clicked it will fade into the selected container encompassing (the html, graphic & mp3 file)

I have managed to get this to work using the carousel actions, however I’m running into problems when trying to implement using the FX actions or target image layer actions either. They work but with the way I have designed it (stacked) once a slave is selected it appears, however trying to view a layer that is stacked lower down subsequently will not fade into the forefront!??

I’m going to go away and play around with this a little more, but its getting a little messy… so if anyone could shed some light on this or any potential solutions/alternatives that would be great!

Many thanks guys

Are you using target show/hide layer at the moment?

If so what settings have you for initially: and restore:

I did an example for Julie some time ago but didn’t have the mp3s but no reason why they can’t be added http://www.deltadesign.co/odds/shirts.html

Hi Dave,

Thanks for all your help.

Here is a test page using the FX action and the target show/hide layer action.

The 2 red box’s are all I have mocked up for now, but as you can see I still can’t get it to work correctly.

Each character must have a scroll graphic, or html container with their own audio sample that can be played.

As you can see once the 2nd red tab is clicked it fades in but the first layer still remains visible, I need a way to wrap this all up into a container and apply the fx/target actions??!!

I have made it work using the carousel action:

Although it work, its not the desired look I want unfortunately.

And deal with a pile of typos/bad spelling!
