I’m creating this personal website dedicated to E.T. the extra-terrestrial. I just created the first page but I think that in the end this site will weigh quite a lot. I don’t care though, because my goal is to create an experience similar to the film. But I needed some advice:
- Given the weight this site will have, I’ll have to make an initial preload so that the user can see everything immediately without waiting. I took a look at the various loading examples but I wanted to customize my preloader by putting an image of E.T. with a bar that advances as the site loads. Any ideas on how to make it?
- I would like the site (or it would be better to write “multimedia presentation”) to have dynamic content. I mean, I don’t want to open the source from time to time and add content also because I’ve seen that when I try to move inside the scene, I move as if I were in slow motion. So I thought to insert some iframes to load some external html pages in order to be faster in writing possible articles. Do you think this is a good idea?
- Problem … I have not created persistent smboli. This animated banner will have to be repeated for each page…do you think I can make it all in a persistent symbol?
- Question CEO. Ok, I know, the HTML5 canvas doesn’t allow an internal search. Is there anything I can do to make it vaguely indexable?
PS: In the animation, when ET’s head is raised, this animation is displayed differently between Firefox and Safari. Safari makes a smooth motion while Firefoz moves its head in jerks. I don’t understand why. The rest of the animation is identical…
