We are moving our web animations away Flash, so that we can be more compatible with mobile devices, so were looking for a good replacement.
Came across HTML5 Slideshow, and love it! Works great, and is very easy to configure, unlike Flash that can take hours to do the very same thing! Now, we can update images all we'd like without having to fight programming in Flash! Sweet!
There were some issues with the initial release, but, they were all over getting the bugs worked out and releasing new updates in a super timely manner! These guys are on the BALL!! It should get a 5 star rating, just on their support service alone!
The ONLY thing keeping me from giving it a complete 5 star rating, is that I'd really like individual control over each image, so that we can pan right on one image, and then pan left on the next image, or what-have-you... Otherwise, this is simply awesome!
Again, their support deserves absolute KUDOS for working out the bugs so effectively!! Great job, guys!!
Great plug in. On my wish list would be to have control over at least the first slide so that I can have it linger longer as a still image at first and then have it start to move. How hard would that be? ;-)
HTML5 Slideshow disappoints me. It can't even do a simple fade effect in IE. Also no recent replies on bugs in the forums. There is no flexibility in the designs as well. Sorry, but I feel like this is the worst extension I bought from DMXzone and I wont recommend it. There are better sliders in the market based on jQuery for the same price, more flexibility and cross-browser support (including fade effects in IE). I ended up buying a better slider elsewhere :*(
Unlike “Active Slide Show” which has been
around for quite a while and has controls over each slide on where they start
and where they end and allowing custom timing for each slide, this program does
not allow for individual controls.
Really disappointed with the lack of
control over each slide. This is not good for portrait presentation where the subjects
head goes missing half the time. Unless I am missing something, it does not
seem to have support for audio where as “Active Slide Show” had this. Bought
this to get away from flash only to be disappointed with the final output product..
