I’ve been in the industry for 10 yrs now (started doing interactive stuff as a freelance when I was 19) and I encountered every new technology when it comes to making things move on screen. Flash was the main standard back in the day when it comes to animation and you’re considered as one of the “cool kids” in the industry if you know how to control this technology. The Flash technology made me pay a LOT of bills and taught me how to be a designer and an adept programmer at the same time. But as any other technology, change is inevitable and that change was accelerated by Apple’s Steve Jobs – making Flash’s popularity dwindle over the years.
I’ll be posting a quick but in-depth tutorial on how to utilize this library including some tips and tricks I’ve been using in the past that could help you a lot of time when it comes to animating things 😉 For now, check out the cool new features of this amazing library at: http://greensock.com/gsap or if you want to dive in, you can also check the library’s very detailed documentation. And yes, KIKA is using this new HTML5 animation standard in our own website \m/
