Showcase slider type

The slides of the showcase slider type are 3D elements, and they are shown from a distance, which is the perspective point. The best way to imagine it is as in real life, if you watch something from 1cm, it will look different from what you see from 1m.
Your slider can go two directions, sideways (horizontal) or up and down (vertical).

Your slider can either have a beginning and an end, or it can be a carousel, meaning that after the last slide the first will come. If you turn off the carousel, the left arrow will disappear on the first slide, and the right arrow will disappear on the last slide. Also the autoplay will stop at the last slide.
Switch with next/previous slides
By default, when you click on the next/previous slides there's a slide switching action to make that slide the active slide. You can disable that behavior by turning off this setting.

How to create a dark overlay for the not active slides?
You can create a dark overlay effect by following the steps below.
Add a background color to your slider at the Slider settings → General tab → Slider Design
Go to the Slider settings → Animations tab. Turn on the Opacity and adjust the Before and After values.
Can I have differently sized slides?
No, you can't. Our showcase slider because of it's system can only have the same slide sizes, so with different ratio images the only options you have is the fill mode options, that you can either make your images to cover the whole slide with the Slider background image fill option, or you can make them show the whole image with the "fit" option, but that leaves empty spaces around these images.
How to create a header for the slider?
You can create a header for your slider by creating a Static Overlay. Then put the heading you want to have above the slider on this Static Overlay.
Alternatively, you could just create a Block type slider for your heading, what you should put in front of the showcase slider.
