Snap.svg Animator

Build animated SVG content with a timeline animation tool

Most SVG animation today is done manually in javascript. But building animation for the web used to be much easier with flash, because designers and animators could visually see their animation as they were building it. Scripted animation is great for algorithmic, dynamic animation, but highly designed character animations are better produced visually.

Interactivity was added to allow users to script their animations, making them interactive.

I created a Custom Platform Plugin for Adobe Animate CC (formerly Flash Professional) that allows you to build animations in the timeline and export animated SVG content. The plugin uses the Snap.svg javascript library to draw and update the timeline.
