Slide

A “slide” in Slider Revolution is a container into which multiple 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.
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 [?] A module in Slider Revolution acts as a container for slides, which in turn act as containers for layers. Modules are created and edited with the module editor.

A "module" is a single, self contained piece of content. You can think of this as being similar to the way a post or page in regular WordPress is a self contained piece of content.

A module can represent any kind of content Slider Revolution is capable of creating, such as a slider, carousel, hero unit, navigation menu, posts display and so on.

Multiple modules can be combined to form rich content such as complete sites and landing pages.
and edited via the module editor [?] The "Module Editor", also known as the "Visual Editor", is an interface used to create & modify modules.

It's through this interface you can add various types of layers to your modules, as well as animation and special FX.
.

Within the module editor, each slide has its own animation timeline [?] The timeline is the section of the module editor dedicated to animation and controlling the stacking order of layers.

From this part of the editor animations can be added, adjusted and previewed. Additionally, layers can be selected from the timeline, and can be dragged and dropped up and down on the timeline to modify which appear in front and which behind.

It can be equally compared to both a timeline in a typical video editing application, and a layers panel in a typical graphic design application
, background [?] A "background" in Slider Revolution is a type of layer that is always present in every module, and is always visually behind all other layers.

A background can be transparent, a flat color, a gradient, an image, or a video. It can be animated in the same way as other layers can be, however it cannot be deleted.
and collection of 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.
.

A single module can have one or many slides. A module with one slide is called a scene [?] A scene is a type of module that has only a single slide. Because it has only one slide that also means it doesn't have any navigation elements.

Scene type modules are a great way to create more static type content like website headers, menus and text content displays. For example, if you want to build full sites and landing pages with Slider Revolution, you will probably stack many scene type modules on top of each other.
, and a module with multiple slides is called a slider [?] A slider is a type of module that contains multiple slides. You can only see one slide at a time, a distinguishing features that makes sliders different from carousels.

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.
or 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.
