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!

    Awesome. Maybe there’s a way to add a layer on top of the animated screen that adds the original reflection on the screen?

  2. 7

    Muy bueno y Muy lindo efecto, algo innovador quizas en algun proximo diseño lo use!

    Saludos Codrops!

    Brilliant! What a nice, elegant solution. A little bit of blur on the slideshow images to match the static image would make it absolutely perfect.

  4. 12

    very pretty idea, i enjoy that.!
    but i think it obtains unfortunately one lack – the rendering doesn’t give a sharp edge in result, based on fact of those asymmetric shape
    ore am i there completely wrong, while viewing this in a nearly uptodate FF?
    Cheers

    I really needed to use the comment form to let you know: You guys are amazing me article after article. But this one is MASSIVE!
    Bravo!

    Really nice stuff. I’m sure we’ll be seeing this around.
    You can also add a screen reflection (which is so popular with such mock ups).
    Just do something like this (this is for Chrome):

    .slideshow:before {
    content: "";
    position: absolute;
    width: 100%;
    height: 100%;
    z-index: 1000;
    background: linear-gradient(105deg, rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.76) 0%,rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.04) 49%,rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.04) 50%,rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.36) 100%);
    }

    There is nothing about perspective on this example, reading your article i feel it seems possible to take a picture of anything with a smartphone then ask a webdev to put a slideshow on a panel visible on the picture, but this is absolutely false, your exemple will never ever work on this kind of pictures, why didn’t you name your article “Orthographic projection slideshow” ?

      “then ask a webdev to put a slideshow on a panel visible on the picture”
      lol could you explain your thought a bit more?

      If you are using the copy of index.html in the ZIP files add “mockup.style.WebkitTransform = ‘scale3d(‘ + val + ‘, ‘ + val + ‘, 1)’;” around line 93. This adds the mockup responsiveness for Safari.
