BeowulF Demo

To show you the different possible gallery styles you can have with 3D ImageFlow Gallery, the BeowulF demo uses a large horizontal canvas that you can explore. The creatures seem to come forward due to the special effects we used.


Tip: When the popup has loaded, click just above the images and press F12 (or CTRL+F12 on the Mac) to play around with the settings of the demo's in a cool control panel.

Great Effects Mixed With Transparent Images

Red Square used a fantastic lit background with transparent images and the new Depth of Field, Depth Fog and MotionBlur effects to create a great banner presentation of their clients.

Other Demos 

3D ImageFlow Gallery supports transparency so you can create cut-outs of your favorite images like we did with the virtual office staff in the demo below. We used MotionBlur to emphasize the movement when switching slides. Depth Of Field And Fog Distance where applied to create the illusion of Depth.

 
This cool demo with photographs from Juri Tscharyiski shows cool 100 degree turns of the main image. We used a little bit of Fog Distance create the illusion of Depth. MotionBlur is applied as a finishing touch to emphasize the movement, although it is only a minimal effect in this gallery as the movement is slow and short.


This cool demo from Juri Tscharyiski features clickable images that shows where the pictures where taken on Google maps. We used MotionBlur to emphasize the movement when switching slides. Depth Of Field And Fog Distance where applied to create the illusion of Depth. Because of the large image size combined with the motionblur effect, you need a fast pc for this demo.

You can also use the gallery for your icons like in this demo. Tip: if you add links, you even have a cool navigation menu. MotionBlur is applied to emphasize the movement when switching slides. Depth Of Field And Fog Distance where used to create the illusion of Depth.
