Create CSS3 Animations with Sencha Animator

Posted on 10.31.2010

Enterprise JavaScript framework Sencha has released a preview of Sencha Animator, a tool for creating CSS3-based animations that can be viewed on the latest WebKit browsers and mobile devices. If you need to create cross-platform animations for playback on smart-phones and touch-based mobile devices including Apple iPad, Apple iPhone, iPod Touch, BlackBerry Torch, and Google Android-based devices, Sencha is worth a look.

Since Apple iOS and numerous other mobile devices do not support popular animation platforms like Adobe Flash and Microsoft Silverlight many rich-media animations and ads are blocked from playback. Sencha Animator bypasses the need for rich-media plug-ins by making it easy to create CSS3 animations that will play anywhere as CSS3 is an HTML5 family technology that runs on modern browsers. 

Features of Sencha Animator include full CSS3 support (including animations, 2D and 3D transformations, backgrounds, borders, font effects). interactive timeline and intuitive object property controls, the ability to manage sequencing, grouping, easing, and other effects with a familiar timeline manager, the ability to export animations to readable HTML, a drag-and-drop development environment. Sencha Animator is packaged as a desktop application.
