How to Configure the Parallax Carousel Component Properties

The Parallax Carousel component properties configuration options are explained below:

Parallax Height

Select in pixels or percentage length of parallax animation. 

* A good starting point is height of the ad unit. It will depend on how many images you want to slide through before the ad is out of view.  For example, if your ad is 600px tall and you want 12 images to scroll, you may need to set the height taller so the scroll is faster/all images are seen.

Transition speed If you want each image to Fade in/out, click into this field and enter in milliseconds the speed.  It will apply to each image in the carousel.
Custom Trigger If selected, the option for "Page Position" will appear below.
Page Position

Select the page position in percentage or pixels. This setting will determine how far down your page the parallax carousel will begin rotating through your selected assets.

*For example, if you plan to run this ad 70% from the top of your site, you can set the custom trigger page position to 70%.

* See example below:
