Bootstrap 3 Carousel fading to new slide instead of sliding to new slide

The Solution to Bootstrap 3 Carousel fading to new slide instead of sliding to new slide is


The update from 3.2.x to 3.3.x broke some of the solutions explained here and on other threads because of the change: "Added transforms to improve carousel performance in modern browsers."

If you are using Bootstrap 3.3.x there's a solution here:
http://codepen.io/transportedman/pen/NPWRGq

Basically you need to add the "carousel-fade" class to your carousel so that you have:
<div class="carousel slide carousel-fade">

And then include the following CSS:

/*
  Bootstrap Carousel Fade Transition (for Bootstrap 3.3.x)
  CSS from:       http://codepen.io/transportedman/pen/NPWRGq
  and:            http://stackoverflow.com/questions/18548731/bootstrap-3-carousel-fading-to-new-slide-instead-of-sliding-to-new-slide
  Inspired from:  http://codepen.io/Rowno/pen/Afykb 
*/
.carousel-fade .carousel-inner .item {
  opacity: 0;
  transition-property: opacity;
}

.carousel-fade .carousel-inner .active {
  opacity: 1;
}

.carousel-fade .carousel-inner .active.left,
.carousel-fade .carousel-inner .active.right {
  left: 0;
  opacity: 0;
  z-index: 1;
}

.carousel-fade .carousel-inner .next.left,
.carousel-fade .carousel-inner .prev.right {
  opacity: 1;
}

.carousel-fade .carousel-control {
  z-index: 2;
}

/*
  WHAT IS NEW IN 3.3: "Added transforms to improve carousel performance in modern browsers."
  Need to override the 3.3 new styles for modern browsers & apply opacity
*/
@media all and (transform-3d), (-webkit-transform-3d) {
    .carousel-fade .carousel-inner > .item.next,
    .carousel-fade .carousel-inner > .item.active.right {
      opacity: 0;
      -webkit-transform: translate3d(0, 0, 0);
              transform: translate3d(0, 0, 0);
    }
    .carousel-fade .carousel-inner > .item.prev,
    .carousel-fade .carousel-inner > .item.active.left {
      opacity: 0;
      -webkit-transform: translate3d(0, 0, 0);
              transform: translate3d(0, 0, 0);
    }
    .carousel-fade .carousel-inner > .item.next.left,
    .carousel-fade .carousel-inner > .item.prev.right,
    .carousel-fade .carousel-inner > .item.active {
      opacity: 1;
      -webkit-transform: translate3d(0, 0, 0);
              transform: translate3d(0, 0, 0);
    }
}
