Looking for a Sideshow (Banner) that will allow true GIF

Post by philly0128 » Fri Dec 03, 2010 2:07 pm

Hello guys, been searching for a couple of days and trying different extenstions. I'm looking for a slideshow banner that will allow real flash or Gif files to play...Bottom line I need to have some animation in some banners but I don't want a sticky banner where it's just 1 banner. I came across a couple that claim it support flash but they don't.

Make animated GIF using the free photo editor: PhotoScape. Available at http://www.photoscape.org.
Advantage: The GIF can be open by any web browser without additional plugin.

I know how to make gif files, in flash or photoshop. thanks for your suggestion but it's not what I asked. I need a slideshow banner that will allow me to play the gif/flash in them. most slideshow banners are just for still images and the banners that do allow flash/gif only allows 1 file as a sticky banner.

I need a slide show that will allow multi gif files to play in the same slideshow.

You mean something like the slideshow at http://movies.yahoo.com/ ?

If yes, refer to http://demo.joomlaworks.gr/component/co ... how-system (Note: Commercial Extension)

"Frontpage SlideShow" is a Javascript/CSS based slideshow system combining text and images to create "slides", as well as (slide) navigation. These "slides" are being rotated one after the other with various fade effects, while text can be displayed/integrated anywhere inside the slideshow (see the various templates showcased on the right column menus). The slideshow's navigation features play/pause and previous/next buttons, as well as individual slide selection buttons for full control by the visitors of your site.
