This week I came across an incredible prototyping tool called Framer (http://www.framerjs.com/), which allows designers to simulate advanced transitions, like those that have been made popular by iOS.I have tried to play around with animations in Kwik, but the process is still too complex and at times, the menu can be to busy for a user that may just need a simple interface animation (like a gentle bounce, while still having some control over the easing).In the Framer introduction video (http://vimeo.com/74712901), they mention an open source project that made me think of a possible new feature for animations. The open source project can be seen in action here: http://easings.net/ (this one is more intuitive, easier to understand, and comprehensive than the one at http://www.gizma.com/easing/).Now to the good part. My idea would be to divide the animation feature into 2 types: Type 1 - Simple Interface Animations: This would present the user with the following options:
Set Position: Boolean (On/Off)
Start point: Enabled if Set Position is On
Ending point: Enabled if Set Position is On
Type 2 - Advanced/Custom Animations:This would be the current animation window.Anyway, food for thought, but I'm sure it would help many users out there (including myself) who are developing other non-book apps 🙂Thanks
A totally new Animation window will be provided after the tests with the new Storyboard API (scene management) is completed. I will keep you all posted and thanks a lot for the suggestions and links!
