Anima allows designers to create high-fidelity prototypes inside Sketch, Adobe XD, and Figma and export HTML & CSS in a single click.
Anima Auto-Animate enables you to connect two similar artboards and get a fluid animation between them as if you animated it yourself.
How Does It Work?
Step 1. Create a design and duplicate the artboard.
Select the artboard and press Command + D.
Step 2. On the duplicated artboard, resize the Machu Picchu image to fit the entire artboard.
Important: Layers must keep the same names in both artboards in order to auto- animate correctly.
Resize Machu Picchu image
Step 3. Move elements to their end position
Move the text box to the lower-left corner
Slide down the Social symbol and Slider Ovals. (Make sure they do not slide outside the artboard).
Slide Facts (hidden) in from the right
Move elements to their end position
Step 4. Modify the elements’ properties
Change the white Rectangle opacity to 0%
Change the text color to white
Change the Social symbol and Slider Ovals opacity to 0%
Change Facts group opacity to 100%
Anima will calculate the position, color, and opacity changes and generate a fluid transition between the two artboards.
