How to to Build Units for a Sliding Interscroller

Below you will find a step-by-step process to build a Sliding Interscroller:

For this Sliding Interscroller example, we'll be building out the Burning Man Sliding Interscroller unit:

Burning Man Sliding Interscroller
  1. First, prepare your assets. We'll be creating 4 separate Interscroller units, which will then be added to a Responsive Width Delivery Group. We recommend building out 2-4 units for this type of delivery group. All units should be the exact same size, with slight variations in the designs.
  2. Provide a unique Name for the first unit, and select Interscroller from the Format dropdown. 
    * In this example, we've named the first Interscroller "Burning Man Interscroller 1"
  3. Select the pre-populated Desktop or Mobile option from the Dimensions dropdown menu, or select Custom to create your own. 
    * In this example, we selected Custom, and sized it to 2560x600.
  4. Backup Image (Optional) and Click URL (Optional) may be left blank at this time, click Submit.

  5. The builder will now load the main Interscroller canvas based on the recommended sizes listed above, or the custom sizes you have inputted in step #2:

    * Note - The "white" section in the above example is considered the "Safe Area", where the most important content should reside.  Place your background image on the stage (overflow is fine), then ensure that the text/content are within the "Safe Area." This is most important in terms of the unit's height. As long as the Responsive Width setting is selected (see below) this will ensure that the unit fits horizontally within the user's screen.
  6. Select Responsive Screen in the righthand side General Properties panel. This will allow your ad unit to scale responsively, based on the size of the screen the unit is viewed on:


  7. Configure the Interscroller Properties:


  8. More information on configuring the Interscroller properties can be found within our knowledge base article here: Interscroller
  9. For this Sliding Interscroller, we'll need to set the Reveal Area to 
    100% Area of Screen Height:


  10. Next we'll need to uncheck "Show Header" and "Show Footer". For the Interscrollers to slide and rotate through seamlessly, we'll need to remove these from the units. The settings for your Sliding Interscroller should be set up as follows:


  11. The Position can be set as Center, Top, or Bottom, but the "Scrolling" position will not work for this type of delivery group.
  12. Add all assets to your canvas. For this example, we are only using one layer per ad unit, but you can use as many layers as you'd like.

    * Note - To ensure that you have seamless transitions between the units, it's important that all layers you want to stay the same are located at the exact same x and y coordinates on each unit. 
  13. Save the ad.

  14. Click on the Preview icon  to view the ad.

How to Duplicate Your Interscroller

  1. Once you have finished designing your first Interscroller, click File > Save As to create your second copy, which will contain the second version of imagery for the Sliding Interscroller Responsive Width Delivery Group.
  2. In this example, we'll call our second Interscroller "Burning Man Interscroller 2":


  3. Make sure "New Ad" is checked within the menu, and click Save.
  4. Your original unit will be duplicated with all of the same settings attributed to the first Interscroller.
  5. Next, we'll need to replace the assets with the imagery for the second Interscroller.
  6. Assets can be easily replaced by navigating to the Screens and Layers panel, clicking on the layer you want to replace, and selecting "Replace Asset":


  7. This will reopen the asset menu, where you can then select your next image for the second Sliding Interscroller:


  8. Select your asset and click Insert.

    * Note - In this example, we've selected the JPG asset "2".
  9. Your new asset will then replace the previous one on your canvas. Resize and reposition as needed, then Save and Preview  .
  10. Duplicate your ad again and repeat the above steps as needed for each unit you are creating for the Sliding Interscroller Delivery Group. 

    * Note - In this example, we'll create 2 additional units using the assets "3" and "4", shown within the assets menu image above.
