Sticky effect: You can set up an animation, that will be trigger once you scroll down. The options are: No effect, slide, and Show Up/Hide Down.

Sticky Opacity: Values are a number from 0 to 1 representing the opacity of the channel (the “alpha” channel). When an element has a value of 0 the element is completely invisible; a value of 1 is completely opaque (solid).
