Top Features & Requirements
• The 3D Stack can be used in all DotNetNuke 4 versions.
• The animation has been developed entirely with the newest Flash technologies (AS 3).
Automated 3D Slide Show
With the Slide Show feature, the 3D Stack display can be fully automated. 3D Stack leafs through the pages of a stack automatically, and shows the Tooltip of the currently displayed image. When the slide show arrives at the end of the stack, the stack automatically flips back through the stack, in reverse. A mouse click on any image in the stack stops the slide show and allows the user to take control.
Detail Page With HTML Support
When you click on an image in the stack, a detail page will display at your option. On this details page, more information about the selected image or product can be displayed. Two unique text fields rendering many HTML tags are available on the details page.
Over 1000 Effect Combinations
Various effects are available for the detail page fly-in (appear) and fly-out (disappear) transition. These effects can be individually configured for each element of the detail page (image and text fields). With these settings, there are many possible effect combinations useful for presenting each animation.
To improve performance for leafing through images in a stack, all images are preloaded into the animation. This can increase memory requirements for large stacks with many images, and slow the initial load time under some conditions. Using Randomize Images feature, you can limit the number of images preloaded into a stack and achieve peak performance. With this feature, every time a 3D Stack page is displayed, a different group of images shows in the stack!
Different results when clicking on an image
You can determine how the animation should react following the click on an image:
1. A page appearing with detail information on the selected image.
2. A link opening to a different page.
All mediaANT 3d modules are built with a smart solution called Alternative Content. On any device or machine where Adobe Flash is not installed or supported, Alternative Content can display an image or other HTML content that you define. Alternative Content is indexed by search engines, too, making the feature perfect for creating search engine friendly content!
The module can be fully configured via the "Settings" page. All options are pre-set for the most common configuration, and in most cases, easy to use drop-down lists display the valid range of options. Each setting is fully documented and described in Help Tooltip text.
No Portal Modifications Required
After installing the 3D Stack module, 3D Stack is immediately ready for use! None of the portal settings are affected by the installation and no additional software will be installed!
The 3D Stack animation file is loaded asynchronously, using AJAX/HTTP requests. This ensures that the display speed of your DotNetNuke web site is not affected by the module.
