I'm working on a new conveyor like module which is very simple but optimized for speed and animation smoothness. What's forced me to write it? Conveyor freezes all other animations while transiting, which was unacceptable for me. I need your advise first. I went with type 2
It will look like this:



What padding works for you best of those 3? Or shall I make paddings configurable like: tile padding, carrier padding, selector padding?

UPDATE:

First beta version released https://github.com/oomek/AttractMode-Carrier

I found a bug in Attract Mode causing snaps updates to be late by 1 frame when using nested surfaces. That mans I'll have to unfortunately postpone the Carrier development until it's resolved.

Very useful! I decided to use it inside my new theme!

I'm waiting your blur shader!

I grab your carrier module, but I'm not able to put in text
is there a new version coming out tomorrow?  :)

Is there a way to fade out your carreir after a few seconds?
