  • Posted to Should I learn prototyping in After Effects or apps like Flinto, Apr 25, 2018

    I would recommend to learn After Effects. Think about that: If you learn After Effects you can do way more than prototypes. If you learn AE you will learn principles of Motion Design and how Animation Tools work. They are quite similar all together. If you learn Flinto only you can just do Prototypes. If you learn After Effects you can do Logo Animations, Marketing Videos, or even create JSON Files which will run in Lottie on iOS or Android.

    Maybe Overlow.io might be something for you? It is still early access. It is more a visual representation of the user flows and prototyping for sketch. Don't know i figma works also.

    Sounds really good, i like the slack integration, sounds promising. Can you tell us more about the free version and the developer perspective? I can imagine that this is suited for the devs and want to know more about that. Can you tell us more about features in the future? I think in terms of technology as well as product features. And how do you want to enhance the handoff / inspect workflow?

    Happy to try it out for a next project if possible.

    Calm down, just wanted to help. I am not a native english speaker and i have to make assumptions if you tell so little about your issue here.

    You may check this one: https://supernova.studio or this one: https://airbnb.design/lottie/

    Have fun. Still wouldn't recommend these kind of tools.

    That i will believe, will always be a starting point but not a seamless transition from design to final product. Have you read about Atomic design? This is the way to go with handoffs. Build Atoms, Molecules and so on and give that to your development team and iterate from there. Currently there is no other way.

    Checkout here: Atomic Design

    We as designers need to start to think like developers and dive into their architecture to deliver Assets/Modules accordingly to their methods instead of clicking one button to create a complicated process for the developers.

    Designers still dream this dream, that our design will be code in the end of the day. The thing is this will never happen or it will be but we will already be dead then. We might be come to the position that we create little components or animations but that`s it. Microsoft Frontpage anyone?

    If you want to go sure that your design will be developed like you imagined, than learn to code there is no way around it.

    All my Developers from the past till today say: That something like that (Design to Code Conversion) will never work. Main Problem: Performance, Updates, Bad Code Quality, Software Architecture...
