[Pro] Cool background change?

Scroll all the way to the bottom of the page and check out the background change effect. How is this accomplished?

Essentially, their bottom image is a png with black robots and grey
zombies. Robots stand out over a grey background which obscures grey
zombies, with the opposite effect when the background is black.

You can see how they did this in the code. Right-click (control-click) near
the bottom of the browser to bring up the Inspect Element browser tool.
There is a lot of code related to t-shirts and coffee-mugs, but basically
the main site structure boils down to this:

  body
  div id="wrapper"
  div id="fancywrapper"
  div id="innerwrapper" (this is where FWP's PageDiv would be)
        div id="banner"
        div id="mainwrapper"
        div id="footer"

They use the first two divs and the body element just to layer the
background image. This can be repeated using Freeway Pro - it’s just code
after all. Also, I think it could be done with multiple CSS background
settings on just the body element, without the div layers.

Here is a FW created example that doesn’t use any Markup - http://www.deltadesign.co/FW6Test/revealing-zombies.html

It is all down to selecting which item to apply the 3 core background images to

These are

http://www.deltadesign.co/FW6Test/Resources/robozombies7.png - applied to the fancywrapper div

http://www.deltadesign.co/FW6Test/Resources/bodytiletop.jpg - applied to Window Background

and http://www.deltadesign.co/FW6Test/Resources/bodytilebottom-ta.jpg - applied to Page Background

The real secret is in the careful colour selections of the zombie image and matching it with the background to the page.

Nicely done, Dave –

Imagine how this effect could be employed in one of those parallax scrolly
designs.

I can only imagine Ernie as those are beyond my Pay Grade!

But seriously - how are we supposed to innovate with every new site. It seems as if the client wants more and more for less and less.

That is why I am going to night school and learning the exciting trade of
Telephone Sanitizer!

It was a toss up between Maker, Thinker, and Telephone Sanitizer. The
others didn’t have cool uniforms or name badges.

Sorry I missed the reference before.
