Perspective Mockup Slideshow

An animated perspective mockup slideshow with 3D transforms based on the computations made with the help of Franklin Ta's script.

A while back, Franklin Ta wrote an article and made a really useful script for transforming an element in 3D in order to fit in a perspective mockup. In his article, he describes how the helper script can be used to create a 3D matrix transformation for embedding an iframe into a mockup image. We thought that it must be really interesting to add a slideshow in order to showcase ones work.

So we’ve used Franklin’s script to create the transformed elements and added a slideshow inside. In order to make the whole thing responsive (the transformation is based on pixels), we scale the main mockup in order to fit into its parent container. The nice thing of using the 3D matrix transforms is that we can use the “real” size for the images in the slideshow (i.e. based on the devices we display). Head over to Franklin’s article to learn how his script works in detail and in order to understand the interesting Math behind it.

In summary, the script can be executed using the console of your dev tools. The corners of the selected element can then be dragged into position and the transform value can be copied (if you inspect your element, you’ll see the value) and pasted into the respective class of the screen element.

Here is an example how we’ve added the transforms to one of our mockup screens (demo 1):

.mobile {
	overflow: hidden;
	position: absolute;
	z-index: 100;
	background: #333;
	width: 320px;
	height: 480px;
	top: 200px;
	left: 500px;
	outline: 1px solid transparent; /* For Firefox (jagged edges bug) */
	transform-origin: 0 0 0;
	transform: matrix3d(0.846234173238242, 0.251585817964749, 0, 0.000085171934399447, -0.115203182108559, 0.800700357116676, 0, -0.000214263459947427, 0, 0, 1, 0, 23, 14, 0, 1);
}

Don’t forget to add the -webkit- prefix for support in Safari, iOS Safari and Android browsers.

The simple slideshow plugin uses CSS animations to show and hide the slides. We’ve used some custom animations, but you can plug in any animation from Daniel Eden’s animate.css.

The styles for the slideshow are the following:

.slideshow {
	padding: 0;
	margin: 0;
	width: 100%;
	height: 100%;
	list-style-type: none;
}

.slideshow__item {
	width: 100%;
	height: 100%;
	position: absolute;
	overflow: hidden;
	pointer-events: none;
	z-index: 1;
	transform: translate3d(-100%, 0, 0);
}

.slideshow__item.current{
	pointer-events: auto;
	z-index: 100;
	transform: translate3d(0, 0, 0);
}

.slideshow img {
	width: 100%;
}

We “hide” the slides by translating them to the left (instead of using opacity, for example). The current item will get the class “current”.

An example for the animation classes is the following (demo 2):

.slideshow__item.in--next {
	animation: inNext 0.5s forwards;
}

.slideshow__item.out--next {
	animation: outNext 0.5s forwards;
}

.slideshow__item.in--prev {
	animation: inPrev 0.5s forwards;
}

.slideshow__item.out--prev {
	animation: outPrev 0.5s forwards;
}

@keyframes inPrev {
	0% {
		transform: translate3d(0, 100%, 0);
	}
	100% {
		transform: none;
	}
}

@keyframes inNext {
	0% {
		transform: scale3d(0.5, 0.5, 1);
	}
	100% {
		transform: none;
	}
}

@keyframes outPrev {
	100% {
		transform: scale3d(0.5, 0.5, 1);
	}
}

@keyframes outNext {
	100% {
		transform: translate3d(0, 100%, 0);
	}
}

In this last example we have two slideshows running at different times. This might be an interesting idea to showcase responsive works.

We hope you like this little idea and find it useful!

      Hey Sarah I ran into the same problem. The script in the footer of each index.html page has a line “mockup.style.transform = ‘scale3d(‘ + val + ‘, ‘ + val + ‘, 1)’;” For support in Safari add “mockup.style.WebkitTransform = ‘scale3d(‘ + val + ‘, ‘ + val + ‘, 1)’;” after that line. If you inspect the code on the live demo page this is how they have it implemented.

    This looks great! I love it how such a simple detail can do so much to give the user a more unique experience.

    I love when somebody put everyhing on plate for me and I just come, read, copy and have everything done. TY :)

    It’s amazing
    just a question:
    How you determined your matrix3d CSS? is any software or plugin or site to set right this property?
    I want make like this slideshow but with my own picture.

    Regards

    So I have been messing with Franklin Ta’s script and go it working well but I am curious as to how to get the images to be responsive like they are in the demos? Where is the scale3d() coming from that I see in the dev tools?

    Any help on this would be awesome thank you!

    Awesome slider. well done. But i’ve a problem with implementation ( in a framework). De mockupWidth in Chrome/safari and firefox is different from each other. Is there any help? :) Thx

    Hi there! Beautiful work as always!! I wanted to integrate this slideshow into my portfolio homepage! Is there a way to have multiple slideshows on one html page?
    I tried around lots of things, but i’m not skilled enough in jQuery i guess! For any ideas i’d be very thankful…
