[Xerte] Re: Flashless Animation

I've been thinking down the same lines, though for simple, abstract stuff, some of the js libraries might be sufficient? I'd prefer to use something open if I can, and even if I were using Flash, I'd prefer to do some of it with code, rather than endless nested timelines, and actionscript doesn't export to a movie?

I was just wondering how others are doing this sort of thing these days. We do get these bespoke animation type requests from time to time

Just wondering if the current/quickest workflow is to use Flash you could use Flash to create the animations then record the small clips to either video or animated gif and then build the sequencing in Xerte. Perhaps even using Fay's new Media Lesson page.

Subject: [Xerte] Flashless Animation

We've had a request to create some materials like this: animation of atoms / particles and so on.

I don't want to use Flash particularly, but I could do if necessary and export movies to play; any alternatives to Flash for this sort of thing?
