As you may have noticed our blog appearance has been changed recently. We switched from Tumblr to self-hosting using Octopress.
Animatron was #1 on the front page of Hacker News today! Coming soon: a blog post that looks at what kind of traffic, conversions rates, and feedback we got from the HN community …
We’ve just unveiled two big changes in Animatron at once: one’s a brand-new Inspector panel for the text tool (complete with Google fonts and the ability to upload custom fonts) and the other is a new feature - dynamic text effects, which make adding kinetic typography to your project as easy as one mouse click.
This project is a great example of our “Take a Picture” feature - when you import an image / SVG / audio file, the import dialogue box also gives you the option to take a photo with your computer’s camera and place that photo directly on the canvas. Open up Shmuel’s project here and try it out with your own pic!
We recently introduced a new way of visually indicating which objects on the canvas are selected at any given time, and it’s a great example of how much difference a small change can make.
