PixelArt45 jQuery Plugin for Isometric Animations


PixelArt45 it's a jQuery Plugin or is trying to be, runing like a SlideShow for Isometric images.


History
----------------------------------------------
Originaly PixelArt45 is born from an 3D CSS3 RPG experiment made by grfxdsgn ( http://jsdo.it/grfxdsgn/A3Fr ) which is a complete CSS3 animation. Discovering the CSS RPG code and later, the "3d popup book" concept, I decided to build a 3D animation in perspective. One week ago I discovered the Pixel Art images created by nasc ( http://www.nasc.fr/ ) and observed that, Pixel Art concept match with CSS3 RPG angle ( same like the Isometric angle ). Of cours, the final code result it is a start and can be improved on next release versions.

How PixelArt45 works:
----------------------------------------------
The image positions ( Top and Left ) are set in a Javascript Object as properties, grouped in Slide Blocks. Each Slide Block can contain an amount of images.

On init, the PixelArt45 is randomly picking a Slide Block, first miliseconds is applying an animation for the floor divs, with can be rotate, scale or perspective. Scale FX is scaling the Divs with CSS "transform" from 1.0 value to 0.6 and back. Rotate FX is turning the floor Divs with CSS "transform" from 0 to 45 degrees and back. Perspective FX is not finished yet. After floor transformation, PixelArt45 reads the content of Slide Block and starts to animate the images from random init positions ( all set somewhere out of page view ), animating all to center of page and back. PixelArt45 can run on 45 mode which means that, the images are using "skew" css transformation proprety to be the skewed to (25,20), option set as AppAngle, and can run also witout AppAngle option, case for isometric images.

On conclusion, this is a 45 Isometric animation experiment, made for fun.
So, feel free to use and to modify the code and why not, feedback to send, eventually.
