Today we’d like to show you some ideas for creative loading effects. Nowadays, many different page loading animations are used in websites; just think of the subtle red loading bar seen on YouTube. When loading something on a page, be it images or the next content, we don’t have to be restricted to a tiny loading indicator but we can get creative and big. So the idea is to indicate that something is happening in a stylish way without creating too much distraction for the user. There might be actions where this might not be adequate, but in some situations it might be quite fitting and amplifying for the overall design.
It was predicted that computer graphics would one day give everyone the ability to create their own blockbuster film. But the software used for modern visual effects is still pretty complicated for the average user. At least until this magical software that can almost instantly turn a still photo into a 3D model is available.
Demonstrated at Siggraph Asia 2013, the software only requires the user to define the three dimensions of an object in a photo by swiping along them with a mouse cursor. Everything else, from generating and texturing the 3D model, to extracting it from the 2D photograph, are all handled by the software. It does away with the need for 3D scanners, multiple images, complex interfaces, and most importantly: artistic talent.

Aviez-vous remarqué qu’en quelques années les carrousels avaient envahi quasiment l’ensemble des sites de média et des boutiques en ligne ? Les carrousels sont ces énormes blocs où des extraits de contenus défilent, comme un ruban horizontal. S’ils sont bien pratiques pour faire rentrer toute l’actualité et les promos, leur principal intérêt est de pouvoir “donner vie” à un site. Je ne savais qu’il y avait des sites vivants et d’autres morts. Je ne savais pas non plus que les internautes refusaient de visiter les sites statiques où “il n’y a pas de vie”. Bref, j’ai comme l’impression que la profession a adopté les carrousels sans trop se poser de question. Pourtant, ces éléments d’interface soulèvent de nombreuses questions
CSS masks were added to the WebKit engine by Apple quite a while ago, namely back in April 2008. Masks offer the ability to control the opacity/transparency of elements on a per-pixel basis, similar to how the alpha/transparency-channel of "24-bit"-PNGs or 32-bit-TIFFs work.
These images consist of the usual R(ed) G(reen) and B(lue) channels that define the colors of each pixel. But on top there is a fourth channel, the alpha channel, that defines every pixel's opacity through luminance: White meaning opaque, black meaning transparent, and countless grey values defining the semi-transparent inbetweens. As you can see in the picture to the left.
With CSS masks it is an HTML element that gets this type of treatment. And instead of using an alpha channel you assign an image resource to a CSS property named -webkit-mask-image, e.g. -webkit-mask-image: url(mouse.png);. Transparency is then read from that mask image and applied to the HTML element, like the picture on the right shows.
One div aims to highlight the potential of CSS3 through a library of single element logos.All icons displayed on the website are realised in pure css with only one html div. The challenge is also to provide an alternative to SVG. Indeed icons allow precise borders preserved even resized (As vector format). Then we can see a clear interest in responsive design.

We’ve been exploring the basics on how to use CSS3 shadows: box-shadow and text-shadow. Today we are going to improve our skills and will look into how to build some amazing text-shadows.
Some of the ideas for shadows, I found in various tutorials for Photoshop — and I was interested whether I can achieve similar effects by using just text-shadow.
FLASHLIGHT is CSS3 3D transform demo. The text color is set to transparent and text-shadow is added. When added a transform: rotateY together with a low perspective, it gets a nice stretched effect. Browser support still limited.
