Helps users to create modular and expressive animations and provides an intuitive substrate to coordinate them in time and space.
To animate a slide presentation with a high number of dynamic elements in an efficient and precise way.
Application of an animation to an element of a certain slide.
Animations creation and management
Each slide element can be associated with a substrate where the user can apply a set of animation tools to add traits to the animations of the element.
The substrate decouples the animations from their subject reinforcing a polymorphic reuse of animations and a more predictable fusion of animations.
The users will be able to reach the quantifiable level of the atomic animations and, to handle the resulting complexity, make their own toolkits with aggregated and altered animations.
We have learned through practice that by designing and controlling not only our tools but also the substrates where they act, we are able to define systems whose functionality emerges spontaneously from the logic of the substrate.
An example of this for us was the creation of an animation-pattern by demonstration. It was the substrate that suggested to us that such information would simply be an animation to be added to the other in the timeline.
