how is this done?

I’m rather impressed with the design of this page. I thought it was flash, but apparently, it isn’t. Can anyone tell me how this is done?

Thanks!

It’s a rather fine example of using a JavaScript library (in this case
MooTools) to do some slick animations. Looking at the JavaScript (http://static.macheist.com/warehouse/warehouse4.js
) I can see that the code tries to animate the boxes with CSS if
available (Webkit or Mozilla) but then falls back to regular JS if
that fails.
It’s very slick and well worth taking a look under the hood.
Regards,
Tim.

Wow - that’s quick. Thank you very much. I will have a look.
As you said, it’s very slick indeed. Loads fast as well.

Back when I used Adobe GoLive, very briefly, you were able to animate layers. There was an order they had to be in and then you had a little timeline to set keys in.

Tim, would GoLive been using a similar technique?

I never used it much at the time, but I thought it was pretty neat.

Yes, that was a similar effect, albeit not with all the goodies that a
modern JavaScript effects library would give you.

In Freeway, there is the Move Layer Action, which uses a similar long-
hand approach to moving a layer around the page. It’s limited to start
position and end position and should I loop.

For a much richer implementation of this idea, Paul Dunning has his
Coppélia Action, complete with demo page showing the London
Underground in motion. Have a look at http://actionsworld.com
