Module

A module in Slider Revolution acts as a container for slides [?] A "slide" in Slider Revolution is a container into which multiple layers can be added, with layers in turn acting as containers for various forms of media such as images, text, video, audio, buttons, and special effects.

Slides are added to modules and edited via the module editor.

Within the module editor, each slide has its own animation timeline, background and collection of layers.

A single module can have one or many slides. A module with one slide is called a scene, and a module with multiple slides is called a slider or carousel.
, which in turn act as containers for layers [?] Layers are containers for visual, audio or layout items and are added to slides. For example, text, button, image, audio, video, group and row are all types of layers.

Layers are added to slides via the module editor.

The slides of a slider can be panned through either by using navigation controls such as arrows and tabs, or by clicking and dragging. They can also be set to automatically transition from one slide to the next.
, carousel [?] A carousel is a type of module that contains multiple slides. However, unlike a slider, you can see multiple slides at the same time.

Carousel slides appear next to each other horizontally and can be panned through either by using navigation controls such as arrows and tabs, or by clicking and dragging. They can also be set to automatically transition from one slide to the next.
, hero unit [?] Hero units are large displays that occupy the top section of a site. They are designed to make a big impact on the visitor as soon as they land on your site.

When creating hero unit modules there is no restriction on the layout type, you can use any of the three options: slider, carousel or scene.

The distinguishing feature of hero units is they are the first major piece of content in a site, usually full width, and typically take up a large portion of, if not all, the screen's available height.
