hi all, I am designing a one page template and in each page run some effects after each other. each page has a different presentation and I don’t want user click all the menus at once. I wondered is it so bad if I lock navigation menu for a moment(it takes less than 3 seconds) and show lock icon if a menu clicked? and how themeforest handle this action? thank you.

No of course not – you could also lock the users keyboard or the mouse so he/she cannot navigate away during that animation. Just kidding…

From UX Point of View I would never recommend to do such a thing. I would rather use callbacks which stops the current animation and starts the new one. Or if the animations are quite fast I would queue them but I would never lock the menu for 3 seconds with a lock icon…
