Layer Motion Slideshow

A CSS Grid-based slideshow template with a layer motion effect on the main image and title.

Today we’d like to share yet another CSS Grid-powered slideshow with you. The idea is to show and hide images with a reveal effect and add a parallax like effect to the main image and the title. For the title we’ve added two copied layers with an outline style which creates an interesting motion effect. For the animations we use TweenMax.

Attention: Note that we use modern CSS properties that might not be supported in older browsers.

The initial view of the slideshow looks as follows:


For each slide we have a custom grid layout with one main image that spans the full height of the page. When we go next, the images will be hidden with a sliding motion and the title letters disappear randomly. The new slide will reveal its images and the title in a similar fashion.

When moving the mouse, we move copied layers of the main image and the title to create a trail-like effect.

Once the plus after the excerpt is clicked, we show the content of the slide and change the background color:


We hope you like this slideshow and find it useful!
