colliding section of columns

Divi’s colliding section of columns effects brings a ton of new design possibilities to the websites you build. The subtle interactions you choose to add can help enhance the overall look of your website. Everything gets even better as soon as you sync the scroll effects. In this tutorial, we will specifically manage the creation of a beautiful colliding section of columns on the scroll. The colliding section of the columns design merges two different columns on the scroll, which in turn helps to emphasize the copy.
