Slice Revealer

A reveal effect where animated slices cover and uncover an image. Inspired by Zhenya Rynzhuk’s transitions experiments.

Today we’d like to share a simple reveal animation with you that is mainly inspired by Zhenya Rynzhuk’s transition experiments and Gil Huybrecht’s “Boardathon” Dribbble shot.

The idea is to cover and uncover an image with slices to either hide or show it. The slices can be vertical or horizontal and can come from different directions. Playing with the number of slices, delays and colors, creates a plethora of possible looks for this effect.

We are using anime.js for the animations and in the third demo we are making use of the Intersection Observer API for triggering the effects on scroll.

The demo is kindly sponsored by Be Theme: 300+ pre-built websites with a 1 click installation.

Attention: Modern CSS properties in use, so please view in a modern browser.
