Release 5.16 – Scranimations and More Analytics Upgrades

Released April 30th, 2014. Ceros 5.16 introduces animate on scroll, or “Scranimations,” and 3 new pages of metrics for Premium Analytics subscribers.

Scranimations

After introducing long scrolling pages back in Ceros 5.14, we got to thinking about how we could make that even better. Then the idea hit us.

Wouldn’t it be great if below-the-fold animations waited until the visitor scrolled down to play?

Eureka! Scranimations were born. Check it out by scrolling in the interactive experience below.

Now animations placed below the fold line don’t play until the user scrolls down. This means you can add fade-ins and other effects to the end of your long scrolling page and the visitors still get to enjoy them.

Another nifty side benefit is that animations will play again when the visitor scrolls back up.

You don’t have to do anything new for Scranimations to work. All existing below-the-fold animations now automatically wait for the visitor to scroll.

Of course, now that Scranimations are live, we encourage you to review the animations on your existing long-form pages. If you do decide to make changes, simply republish for all the world to see.

New Analytics Pages
