Professional looking banner rotator which rotates your images and swf files using six different transitions.

First version of this BANNER ROTATOR :


You can set how “visible” background holder for buttons is, or if you don’t like it you can hide (disable it) and only buttons will appear on stage. You can choose between 6 different transitions:

- Blur

- Blur X (blur along x axis)

- Blur Y (blur along y axis)

- Alpha (fading from one image to another)

- X (movement along x axis)

- Y (movement along y axis)

In this banner rotator preview you can test all transitions, different positions and some of the colors. Please note that you can choose any color for buttons and button holder.

Over 40 parameters of banner rotator can be changed via XML . Below are some of them:

- transition type

- value of blur effect

- dimensions, visibility and position of first text container of each banner

- color of buttons

- image size

- size of “big” and “small” buttons

- time of each tween (seconds)

- time each slide is shown (milliseconds)

- visibility of text

- URL for each image of each banner

- alpha value of background holder for buttons
