    Hey all,

    I'm trying to do a very simple carousel, with just 3 buttons, each with a 128px image and text underneath. The layout I'm trying to achieve (I keep getting close, but cannot get it right), is to have the main/active button to be front and center, with the 2 other buttons aligned evenly behind and to the side (respectively) of the main/active button. The 2 inactive buttons would ideally be slightly opaque to help the main/active button stand out.

    I've attached a crude, but simple drawing of what the layout should look like (although I don't think the pic is perfectly aligned).

    Any chance someone can help me with the carousel path settings? Maybe someone already has done this and can just provide the correct settings.

    Thank you so much for any help you can provide!

    I've got it really, really close to what I want. The problem now is it only smoothly rotates from right to left. When rotating from left to right the button shifting from background right to background left bobs/weaves and pops in and out making for a very awkward UIX. It does correctly rotate from left to right if the the background right image is the starter main image (not sure I'm explaining this right).

    Thank you for writing and for the provided details.

    This is an issue related to the Carousel animation engine - RadCarousel relies on it to move/fade/scale the elements and this behavior cannot be avoided at this time. Here is a link to the PITS item, where you can add your vote for it.

    Write back if you have additional questions.

    Kind regards,
