Responsive Background Slideshow Module

The eXtro Responsive Background Slideshow Extended (aka E.R.B.S.E.) is a universally CSS3 based background image slideshow. Due to that no JavaScript is needed (original effect only), you can save ressources in data transfer as well as in the users frontend.

The eXtro Background Slider is available in these languages:

English, German, Czech, Spanish, Chinese, Greek, Serbian (L & C), Dutch, Polish, Portuguese (pt-BR), French, Croatian, Persian/Farsi (fa-IR), Romanian, Bosnian, Italian, Hungarian, Swedish, Russian, Finnish, Danish

The Responsive Background Slideshow comes with different image animation effects, the duration of each slide can be defined as well as zoom and tilt of the slide image (original effect). Additionally, a caption can be created per slide which can be faded by various animation styles in front of the image. The captions font type, size and color can be defined as well.

Best results can be achieved by using a template which allows to completely fade out the main content, or if you use a template with partially transparent background. The eXtro Responsive Background Slideshow can be published in any
module position, but for best results, we recommend using a background position with low HTML nesting to reduce unwanted side effects.

For best results, we recommend using FullHD images at miniumum.

I bought this module because I liked the idea of having an animated background on my site.

Asked their support for help on how to add it to my site, and in no time, they did the job.

They even explained to me how to do it if I wanted to try it myself in another website.

Thanks for making this module and for providing fast and friendly support!

I needed a module that would display a zooming slideshow in the header div of my responsive page. The Responsive Background Slider is intended mainly for the entire page background, but the answer to my question on the author's support forum indicated that it is possible to use it also for specific divs by making a few small changes.

After I purchased the module I immediately opened a support ticket, and it was responded to within a very short time with a good explanation on what changes needed to be done. A couple of simple changes on a few lines in the module's php file made the trick, and the module now works beautifully on the header of my page.

The support for this component is fast and proffessional.

A highly recommended module!

If you want to have a nice animated background on your site, you can't make anything wrong with this module, all kinds of sites will just look better.
Just select your background images and save (default settings will produce a nice tilt/zoom effect), that's all - the module does the rest, and it does it good!

The best part about this module: No matter if you want to create a animated background slideshow with zoom/tilt effects, or if you just want to have a static background image - all in between is possible, just play around with the settings.

Thanks for this fantastic module.

Before buying this, I tried bgmax and was just about to buy some other junk... Thankfully I stumbled upon this module and my job was done in seconds! Works great with my Artisteer based templates as well as with my JAT3 based ones. Fast, cheap and effective...

Keep up the good work.
