Making transition for class .rsGCaption

Hi Dimitry,

I created a post slider with a short transition which is working fine. But the caption shows up always immediately at change. This does not harmonize with the smooth transition of the pictures. I tried css styling with:

.rsGCaption h2 {
    padding-bottom: 5px !important;
    color: #f4f4f4 !important;
    /* transitions */
    -webkit-transition: all 2s ease;
       -moz-transition: all 2s ease;
        -ms-transition: all 2s ease;
         -o-transition: all 2s ease;
            transition: all 2s ease;

But there is no effect. In your documentation then I found "Content of caption changes before animation of slides start". Is there really no way to have a transition for the caption?

    The global caption is single for the whole slider. You can not animate it, but you can place the caption directly into the content of the slide, to do this click on "Edit Slide Markup" in general options and after {{image_tag}} add:

    <div class="custom-rs-caption">

    Then you may apply styles to it via CSS, for example:

    .custom-rs-caption {
      position: absolute;
      bottom: 5px;
      left: 5px;
      padding: 4px 6px;
      background: rgba(0,0,0,0.7);
      color: #fff;

    If you want to apply one more transition to it, you may use the active/current class:

    • In Misc section of the slider options enable "Current CSS class",
    • Then in CSS you may use:
    /* animate opacity from 0 to 1 when slide becomes active */
    .custom-rs-caption {
      opacity: 0;
      transition: opacity 0.8s ease; 
    .rsActiveSlide .custom-rs-caption {
      opacity: 1;
