Layer animation manager

The layer animation manager appears, when you enter the IN, LOOP or OUT animation of the layer.

The animation manager works the same way, as the font and style manager. There are sets, which are groups of animations. You can choose from those animations, add new ones to them, create new sets, and manage them. In the Animation settings you can see the values used by the specific animations, and you can modify them or just create new ones from blank. In the preview you will see an image with the size of your layer repeating the given animation, and you can choose to only see the selected part of the animation (solo) or the whole animation how it will be in your layer (chain).

Animation settings

Layer animations work the way that you can put as many animations on one layer, as many you want with the plus button. The configurations you have will be based on the original position for every animation. The original position will be the endpoint, so for example if you put 100px to the Offset - Y, your layer will start from 100px higher, and move down to the original position. You can see an example here.

Name

The name of the animation step.

Duration

The duration of the animation step.

Easing

The pace of the animation. You can see them here.

Opacity

This is how transparent your layer will be.

Offset

This is the positon of your layer.

Rotate

You can rotate your layer around the X, Y and/or Z axis.

Scale

Your layer will be scaled up or down to these given numbers.

Skew

Expert

Your layer will be skewed by the given percent.

Layer global animation properties

IN

This animation will bring your layer into the slide. They are played only once, unless if you use the Event triggering with the Repeatable option turned on.

Special zero

If you turn this option on, the last layer animation won't be an animation, it will just change your layer to the selected display. This will be the ending zero position, the origo, so you will have to adjust your animations to that point. You can see an example here.

Transform origin

The animations are played from this point. The 0,0,0 position is the top left corner of the layer. The best way to visualize this is to give a Rotate – Z value at the Animation settings, and change the X and Y positions.

Event

You can choose to change your animation not to be an incoming animation, but rather make it happen on an event. This event can be either one from the list you can see if you click into this input box or you can write any event name here, for example "showtext", and at any other layer's item tab Event on mouseenter, Event on mouseclick, Event on mouseleave option you can write that "showtext" event, and those will trigger this animation to be played. You can see some examples here.

LOOP

You can use this animation to animate your layer as long as the slide is active, for example, you can spin an icon or an image to get attention. Of course, you can use events too which will trigger these animations.

Repeat

If you don't want your loop to be endless, write a Count here, also you can make the animation to have a Start delay before it starts.

Transform origin

The animations are played from this point. The 0,0,0 position is the top left corner of the layer. The best way to visualize this is to give a Rotate – Z value at the Animation settings, and change the X and Y positions.

Event

You can choose to change your animation to not play, pause or stop automatically, but rather make it play on an event. This event can be either one from the list you can see if you click into this input box or you can write any event name here, for example "showtext", and at any other layer's item tab Event on mouseenter, Event on mouseclick, Event on mouseleave option you can write that "showtext" event, and those will trigger this animation to play. You can see some examples here.

OUT

These are the animations which will be played before the slide changes or when you simply want the layer to disappear.

Transform origin

The animations are played from this point. The 0,0,0 position is the top left corner of the layer. The best way to visualize this is to give a Rotate - Z value at the Animation settings, and change the X and Y positions.

Event

You can choose to change your animation to not to be an "outgoing" animation, but rather make it play on an event. This event can be either one from the list you can see if you click into this input box or you can write any event name here, for example "showtext", and at any other layer's item tab Event on mouseenter, Event on mouseclick, Event on mouseleave option you can write that "showtext" event, and those will trigger this animation to play. If you pick Repeatable, then this event can happen more than once, if you leave it off, it will only happen one time. You can see some examples here.

The Instant out means, that if it's turned on, then your animation will go out after the given Delay from it's starting point, but if you turn this option off, your animation will truly be an outgoing animation, which means, that it will happen, when you are switching away from your slide. This turned off option only works, if the Forced option is chosen at the Layer animations.
