Animation is slightly scary.

Why?

  • Lacking fundamentals
  • Difficulty to visualize animation
  • Unfamiliar territory

Fundamentals

Don't know where to start?

  • Rotate

  • Scale

  • Opacity

  • Translate

Can't visualize?

Separate things you want to animate.

Go crazy & combine fundamentals!

Unfamiliar territory?

Translate up & down + 0.05 speed

Animation is not that scary.
