Hypercube

Hypercube

The Hypercube is a 3D, cube-shaped Gallery widget. To move the cube from one face to another, the user needs to swipe over the cube. The direction of the swipe determines the direction the cube spins. Note that the cube will land on the closest face following the spin. To set up the cube, utilize the Preference Panel.   Parameters Entrance Effect: On the page’s entry, the cube spins and lands on the first image in the list. You may set the number of spins, and their speed. Snap to Face: You may determine the speed of the movement between faces.   Images Upload: The cube takes up to 6 images. When uploading more than six images, the redundant images will be ignored. When uploading less than 6 images, some images will appear on more than one face. On Click options: Like other multi-images widgets, each face has a separate ‘On Click’ event. You can set the clicks to trigger different actions – ‘Open URL’, ‘Hide ad’ and ‘Show page’.   Edit: In editing mode, the widget’s borders are wider than the images themselves.

Smart Group

Smart Group

A Smart Group is a special widget as on its own, it does nothing. It only works with other widgets attached to it. The Smart Group widget has three main use cases. Group together multiple widgets and move / animate them together in the final ad and in edit mode. The Smart Group slightly resembles the ‘Smart Object’ in Photoshop, in which only the graphics within the parameters of the Smart Group are displayed while everything else is cropped. Work on and move widgets within the Smart Group. Widgets remain fully functional within a Group. The only difference is that their X and Y parameters refer to the Smart Group widget, and not the regular Canvas. Creating a Smart Group Drag a Smart Group widget onto the canvas. Drag other widgets onto the canvas. In the Layers Panel, drag the widgets that should be part of the Smart Group onto it. Once done, they will a subpart of it. Please note: The order of the widgets in the sublayer is important as the first one will be presented on top. Make sure all the graphics you need to be visible are located within the parameters of the Smart Group or they will be cropped. Configure each widget by selecting it in the layer panel.  
Smart Gallery

Smart Gallery

The “Smart Gallery” widget is the latest addition to the Creative Factory’s gallery section. In contrast to the “Gallery” widget, the “Smart Gallery” allows swiping of “Smart Group” widgets instead of images. This ability enables you to put anything you want inside (images, videos, drifter etc.) for maximum engagement and control. By default, the widget contains 3 Smart Groups as sub widgets. There are no limitations in the amount of Smart Groups you can add to the Smart Gallery   To add more Smart Groups, you can add them manually under the Parameters. Or, you can add by selecting Smart Group under the “Basic widgets”, and dragging it onto the Smart Gallery folder in the “Layers Panel”.   Creating a Smart Gallery Drag a Smart Gallery onto the canvas. As mentioned, you will see 3 Smart Groups automatically created under the Smart Gallery. In the Layers Panel, drag the widgets that should be part of the Smart Group onto it. Once done, they will be a subpart of it.

InCube

InCube

The InCube is a 3D Gyro-based widget which creates a 360°experience inside a cube. The user controls the viewing direction by tilting their device or dragging their fingertips along the screen.   How to set up the InCube Faces: You can access the different faces of the InCube through the Layers Panel under the InCube layer. Since each of the faces is a Smart Group, you can place almost any widget inside it. Here is how it’s done: To add widgets to the faces, drag and drop them directly into the relevant face on the Canvas. To rearrange widgets across faces, enter the Layers Panel and drag their layer under the face of your choice. Note, the front face of the InCube is the one facing the user once they load the ad.   360° icon: By default, a 360° icon will be displayed at the right side of the InCube within the ad in order to guide the user.  If you would like to remove or customize it, mark the InCube in the Layers Panel and access the Preferences Panel of the InCube. There, Uncheck the 360°icon checkbox to remove it. Or upload your own custom icon instead.   Actions and … Continued

Animation Strip

Animation Strip

  The Animation Strip widget enables you to play animations on screen. You can either upload a sprite sheet or multiple single images. An audio file can additionally be entered.   For example, this is a simple – and not very long – sprite sheet. When entered into an Animation Strip, its direction setting will be left to right, and the frame size will be 350.   When working with the Animation Strip, please remember that sound can only play if the user has already interacted with the ad or landing page. So don’t set the animation strip to auto-play on the first page if it needs to play a sound. Animation Strips can be suspended and resumed using the special ‘Operate’ actions called ‘Suspend Strip’ and ‘Resume Strip’.
