"Opening Door" Effect with Motion Scrolling - Training Video

In this quick tutorial we’ll show you how to use Adobe Muse Motion Scroll (Parallax) effects to create an “opening door” for your website. This is a unique technique that allows you to present a strong, simple introduction to your site that is reminiscent of the days when websites used landing pages. Landing pages are separate entry pages for your site that eventually proved to be harmful for SEO, however by including your introduction area directly on the homepage of your website by using the opening door technique, there is no negative effect on SEO or a search engines ability to index the site content.

Here’s a preview link of our “Opening Door” website:

Can this work but instead of open the image to open my website?

Hi Jesy – yes, it’s actually better than having an image / landing page. Users should always arrive directly on the homepage, rather than clicking through another page.

Hi Steve,

I am new to muse and I have been searching “how to create a splash/welcome page”, and thanks to you, and Jesy’s idea I believe I have found a new way! Thank you!

Just one question, Is it best to create the home page first then apply the parallax opening door trick to the home page?

Thanks,

Sekquiree
