And the latest version opens up even more possibilities, now providing multiple export options and the ability to add in audio, making for even more interesting web content.”
New Features and Key Benefits of MotionComposer 1.6
Add sound to your animation
Users can import audio files into their web animations by simply dragging and dropping in audio files directly from iTunes. Audio can be adjusted to the animation within the state and slide workspace. Animations become more engaging with the accompanying sound.
The most optimized rendering compatible with the latest HTML5 technology
Compatible with the latest generations of web browsers, including Chrome and Internet Explorer 10, MotionComposer’s newly optimized engine generates code for users that will run smoothly in all browsers using the latest HTML5 technology. Rendering is faster than ever for clean, crisp animations.
An intuitive user interface
Unlike other animation software, MotionComposer does not employ the use of complicated timelines. Its simple-to-use interface features the concept of “slides” and “states”, where each slide is a state of the global animation. With a clear, easy to understand workspace, users can see all the elements of their animation and positions at a glance.
Export options ease the distribution process
Users can now designate the animation destination directly through the export options. Creating material for blogs, websites, self-published e-books and more is as simple as clicking a button. Animations for e-books are published as widgets that can be imported into iBooks Author, Apple’s digital publishing program. Animations are tailor-made for whatever platform they’re viewed on.
Never write a single line of a code again
When it comes to web animations, MotionComposer does all of the heavy lifting. MotionComposer has the most optimized rendering engine, so users can export animations in both Flash and HTML5, eliminating the need to guess which format viewers’ technology will support. When the animation is complete, MotionComposer automatically creates code to support all formats.
