Fading between images in a gallery using relative timelines


(Frans Hanekom) #1

Hi, I have this image gallery which slides from left to right, changing to different images. I usually just place them side by side and by using relative timelines, so that I can flip through them using navigation buttons on the sides (left and right buttons).

I would like to take this a step further by overlapping the set of images and fading them in-and-out when flipping through them, almost giving them a parallax effect when changing. Only problem is that the animation only works navigating forward. When going back or selecting a different timeline the images stays hidden. I’ve attached the open file, am I missing something somewhere?

Hi Frans!

However, it may not serve your purposes as I’ve stepped away from the “relative” timeline approach for the images. The images now have their own standard timeline: “Slider Images”. There may be a reason - not apparent in your post or example - why a standard timeline is not appropriate in your project, but I don’t believe a relative timeline is the right tool for the job here.

Undoubtably You will want to make tweaks. My intent was to give a general structural direction - not present a finished solution.
