    funny but true, as some websites have a file size limit.

  • Posted to Which tool(s) are you using for designing UI animations?, in reply to Nicolas Python , Apr 27, 2020

    Agreed, SmartAnimate is awesome.

    When I moved to Figma I thought I'd need to fire up Kite or Principle to work on animations and transitions, but SmartAnimate has so far solved all my needs.

    thumbs up

    On the same boat, tried A LOT of tools for Sketch. A LOT, even some very obscure ones. So here are my thoughts on the best of the bunch:

    1. Kite Compositor: Great tool, can handle a lot of complex animations that Principle couldn't do.

    2. Drama: Another great app, didn't have time to dive deeply into it since I switched to Figma, but looked even easier and more intuitive than Kite.

    3. Principle: Great, for simple stuff. It was my favorite tool, but just trying to do anything more complex like nested symbols and it didn't work, or had to do some laborious workarounds around its limitations.

    4. AE: The 800-pound gorilla, but slower to work on.

    And depending on the complexity, I'd give Figma a second try, at least for simple stuff.

    I just use the included apps: Notes, Mail, Camera.

    • Notes syncs to my Mac, and supports drawings.

    • Camera app can create PDFs

    Oh, forgot I made two changes:

    • Switched to Google Calendar, more functionality than the stock one.

    • Switched to WeatherBug.

    I also moved some apps to the next screen to clean the bottom area.

    Lottie is the most familiar I am with, used it in Sketch+AE. But, we just moved to Figma, so still not sure what the workflow is for it.

    Lottie is great, by the folks at AirBnB, works in mobile native apps and web as well, devs love it because of the ease of use and there's a great ecosystem and is actively maintained. Their GitHub repo [1] has several example files, so it's a great way to learn from or learn some tricks. Highly recommended.
