Well I did not know that there were already animation editors for HTML5 but I am glad there is now. Animation is one of those things that everyone wants to do but often get deterred from doing it after they realize it is a lot of work. I have worked on a video game for a previous class and I can say if you do not have a tool helping you out with animation, it can take hours of guess work to get it just right. I would have really enjoyed something like this, being able to just place down a shape and have it (the software) render everything else i needed to make the transition. The thing that Hype stresses is it’s ease of use. No coding is required and so it opens up an entirely new audience for the software’s user base. Anybody can just pick this up and start making their own animations and soon enough we will have a web that is no longer static and boring, but fun and entertaining. Stating this again, Mac only….it’s one downside.
