View Full Change Log
Chop Slider 3 is the world's most powerful animated jQuery/Wordpress image slider with exclusive and magnificent effects and stunning features. It is not just a fixed or improved version of Chop Slider 2. It is absolutely new plugin which was developed completely from scratch based on the experience of previous versions and in accordance with modern technology trends, requirements and the growing support of HTML5.
As a result, we have combined all the best of what we know in a one single product, which combines all the best that was in the Chop Slider 2, flavored with new and amazing effects, exclusive Canvas effects, and now it works much faster and much better.
And we do not forget about huge growth of mobile web and applications so we've made Chop Slider 3 fully responsive and create awesome plugin Chop Slider Touch - a special plugin which adds native touch behavior and special amazing "touch effects". Read more about Chop Slider Touch below.
x3 - Three Times Better
As said above Chop Slider 3 is absolutely new plugin with new "modular" structure. Its core is highly optimized and works much more faster than Chop Slider 2. All effects are also rewritten from scratch, so all CS3 effects are new, more "usable", fast and much more impressive.
Amazing CSS3 Animation
Chop Slider 3 uses full power of CSS3 animation (2D and 3D transform transitions), it has own CSS3 2D Transforms and 3D Transforms support detection and works a little bit different (but still awesome) in old (like Internet Explorer) browsers
Chop Slider 3 is the only one slider which provides such amount of true CSS3 3D effects on such high level. They look really amazing and very impressive.
Brand New Canvas Effects
Chop Slider 3 provides something really new, stunning and exclusive - Canvas effects. These effects are great solution for demonstration of Photographers portfolios.
Flexible Effects Degradation
Chop Slider 3 comes with flexible effects degradation. It is based on features detection and that's why Chop Slider 3 work in all browsers. The point is that you can specify different effects from different groups at the same time - some from 2D, few from 3D, etc., and Chop Slider 3 will disable unsupported effects automatically.
Full Navigation Control
Control your slideshow in your own way. Chop Slider 3 comes with built-in navigation and pagination, it supports "Next" and "Previous" buttons and pagination switches. If you do not want to use built-in navigation control you can disable it and use your own with Chop Slider 3 API.
Call Back API
Chop Slider supports up to 5 custom callback functions like onStart() and onEnd(), and 3 new touch callbacks like onTouchStart() and onTouchEnd(). They are very useful if you want to use custom navigation, pagination or some interaction with environment.
Easy To Setup
It is very easy to integrate Chop Slider 3 to any website. All yoy need is just to copy its folder with script, styles and images to your website, add some container with your slides-images to HTML and to add couple of lines with JS code to init slider.
Brand New Captions
