Glitch Effect Slideshow

A simple slideshow that uses the CSS Glitch Effect for the slide transitions.

After playing with an experimental CSS Glitch Effect for images and text, one of the first questions we got was “how can this be used in a slideshow”? The animations we used for the glitch effect were tuned to run infinitely, so the keyframes were adjusted to that. In a slideshow we have a different scenario: we want to apply the glitch effect at a specific moment and exchange the image with the new one of the next slide. This kind of animation can also be used for hover effects.

This slideshow does exactly that: it transitions to the next slide using the glitch effect. Under the hood, it exchanges the glitch layers one by one and stops glitching once the last image is switched.

The demo is kindly sponsored by: GitLab 10.1 which now allows you to manage your visual assets like you manage your code. If you would like to sponsor one of our demos, find out more here.

Attention: Please note that the CSS clip-path property does not work in IE or Edge.

    Hey Mary Lou! I really loved the glitch effect in a slideshow but is there any way it can be used with autoplay? What I mean is, the image sits there for a few seconds and then the glitch transition effect occurs without having to click anything.

    Thanks a lot!
