Applications to do HTML5 Animation

Keep in mind that none of the following use Canvas.

  • Sencha Animator has a really dark UI, asset library and doesn’t output code that will work in Firefox.
  • Tumult Hype is another application to help build HTML5 animations and interactive content. It lets your hit record and creates keyframes based on what you move.
  • MotionComposer has a unique interface without a real timeline because you move things around and it figures it out for you. It will generate Flash or HTML5 content.
  • Adobe Edge Animate is currently free. It doesn’t work as nice as Flash, but I’m sure it will get there. However, I doubt it will remain free forever as it becomes more advanced.
