Extras Tab Animation Options

  • Animation Type – This controls the column’s animation type. This animates the chosen Element as the page loads. Choose between None, Bounce, Fade, Flash, Rubberband, Shake, Slide, Zoom, Flip Vertically, Flip Horizontally, Light Speed or Reveal With Color.

  • Direction of Animation – This controls the direction of the animation on the chosen Element. Choose between Top, Right, Bottom, Left, or Static.

  • Speed of Animation – This controls the speed of the animation on the chosen Element. Choose between 0.1 to 5. This is in seconds.

  • Animation DelaySelect the delay time after the animation starts (0 – 5).

  • Offset of Animation – With this option, you can configure exactly when the animation will start. Without this, many animations would run before the content was in the viewport. Choose between Default, Top of element hits bottom of viewport, Top of element hits middle of viewport, or Bottom of element enters viewport.
