  • Scale X – This option allows you to scale up or down the width of the column, on both normal or hover states, from a value of 0 to a vlue of 2 (double size).

  • Scale Y – This option allows you to scale up or down the height of the column, on both normal or hover states, from a value of 0 to a vlue of 2 (double size).

  • Translate X – This option allows you to adjust the horizontal positioning of the column, on both normal or hover states, by plus or minus 300px.

  • Translate Y – This option allows you to adjust the vertical positioning of the column, on both normal or hover states, by plus or minus 300px.

  • Rotate – This option allows you to adjust the rotation of the column, on both normal or hover states, from -360 to plus 360 degrees.

  • Skew X – This option allows you to skew the column in the horizontal direction, on both normal or hover states, from a value of minus 100 to plus 100.

  • Skew Y – This option allows you to skew the column in the vertical direction, on both normal or hover states, from a value of minus 100 to plus 100.

  • Transform Origin – This option allows you to set the location of the origin point for your selected transformations.

  • Transition Duration – This option controls the duration of the transform effect as you change from Normal to Hover state.

  • Transition Easing – This option allows you to control the easing of the transition. Linear, for example, specifies a transition effect with the same speed from start to end. You can also choose Ease (the default) Ease In, Ease Out, Ease In Out, Linear, and Custom. For custom, there is a link to a website where you can create custom easing.
