Those 2 New Modules will Amaze You

by Aug 24, 2020Announcements, Pixel Modules

Today we’re introducing brand new modules added to the Divi Pixel plugin. With this update, you will get access to 22 fully customizable and powerful Divi modules which will help you build better websites in no time.
The Divi Pixel is getting better every single day. We are aiming to provide new modules with each new release. This time our dev team has prepared 2 new modules that will enhance your Divi Builder and in this article, I will show you the new possibilities offered by the Divi Pixel plugin.
Panorama Module

Scrolling panoramas are great for showing wide or tall images in a small space. Instead of reducing their size to fit on the screen, you can place the image in a scrolling panorama, which will allow you to see a larger image at its actual size. The visitor can view the entire image by dragging it horizontally or vertically, depending on settings selected. This module also supports 360° videos and it will be a great addition to any website in the travel industry.

Pixel Panorama adds a new module to the Divi Builder that makes it easy to create vertical and horizontal panoramas. There are 4 panorama modes: 2D Image, Equirectangular, Cube Map and Video Panorama. Each panorama type will help you achieve different results with a different content type.

2D Image Panorama type allows you to upload a simple 2D image and scroll it horizontally or vertically. This mode will work for any images that are wide or tall. We can add image and let users scroll it to see the full content. In this mode, we can also select Scroll Type (Horizontal, Vertical or Both), and define Repeat setting (None, Horizontal, Vertical or Both). 2D Image mode will be perfect for showcasing interiors, city panoramas, workspaces and many more.

The Equirectangular mode is a real 360° panorama. It’s a single rectangular image that wraps 360 degrees horizontally and 180 degrees vertically. In this mode, the image will get rounded into a sphere and will repeat automatically. By default, the module won’t load the entire image initially and will display image placeholder, so you can actually upload a huge panorama image, and have it loaded when the user clicks “Load Panorama”. If you want panorama to be loaded on page load, you can enable Auto Load option.

In the Cube Map mode, the environment is projected onto the sides of a cube and stored as six square textures. There are many tools online which will allow you to generate Cube Map from the equirectangular (360° panorama) image. One of the tools can be found here.

Video Panorama mode allows you to upload 360° panorama videos. There are very few situations when creating a 360° video is actually “necessary”. But there are opportunities when it’s useful — for example if you’re trying to create an amplified, but virtual experience of a certain place. 

That could be why many of the most popular 360° videos pertain to travel or exceptional experiences – see below. Those are the types of situations that are enhanced by this particular video format.

Reading Progress Bar
The reading progress bar is a great way to improve the user experience of your website. This is especially useful on blog pages with a lot of content. The reading progress bar indicates to the user how much content has already read and how much content is left by the end of the article. The Reading Progress Bar can be placed on the top, below the menu or at the bottom of your website. We can also change its color, width and even add animation.
