If you have not been scared enough last Friday you still have a chance. Here is awesomely creepy Halloween flick from our user Clu
We have some new additions to our Shapes tool, specially created for the scariest day of the year!
Over the past few months, more and more users have been requesting a new feature: the ability to import video files into their project and a) add animation on top of it, plus b) animate the video itself on the canvas. We’re excited to announce that it’s (almost) here!
By almost, I mean that the functionality is ready, but there’s a lot of testing needed before it’s ready for prime time. For now, Pro users can import small video files (up to 50Mb) and we’ll soon be opening beta testing (with an increased file size limit) to interested users.
If you’re interested in being on the beta list, drop us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org. Full-featured video import will be available by the end of the year!
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!
