Javascript transition effects with Blockster

Highlighting your featured content can be quite the challenge. Getting the aesthetics right by pulling the eye in without stabbing it is a valuable skill. A nice tool that you can use when appropriate is Blockster.

Blockster is a Javascript transition effect designed for ‘featured content’ rotators or slideshows. Its underlying concept is to transition between one element to the next block by block. It is highly customisable in terms of how many blocks are involved, whether they fade in or simply appear, whether they appear in order or randomly, and more.

The script gives you full control over how the script behaves, giving you scope to create some pretty varying effects. You can set the number of rows and cols in the block grid, whether the blocks should fade in or simply appear, whether they should appear randomly, in order, etc.
