Hippani Animator – HTML animation studio

Hippani Animator – HTML animation studio

 

We are working on a project for Kelston Deaf Education Centre in Auckland at the moment,  updating older CD based resources for Deaf students into online resources for  teacher, student and parent use.

For this project  we decided to develop using an  animation tool called Hippani Animator as our HTML animation studio tool.

On first glance the interface seems dated but don’t be fooled. The program comes packed with functionality and has a powerful inbuilt Javascript and image resource editor  for in-development resource editing.

The company promotes the program for making scalable interactive animation, complex games, videos, presentations, apps and multimedia websites.  It also boasts that users can publish on more web browsers and more devices than any other HTML5 animator.

 Hippani Animator is a Windows only desktop software application that has  a two tiered price:

Starter Edition: Free

Professional Edition : $50 (USD)

I made the mistake by equating price to functionality and did  I get that wrong !.  This piece of software has exceeded all of our expectations.

Here are some of the features contained in the software.

Saola Animate – An easy to use tool to create HTML5 Animation and Interactive web content

Saola Animate – An easy to use tool to create HTML5 Animation and Interactive web content

We have just purchased a lifetime licence to this neat authoring tool.

It’s called Saola Animator, a desktop software application that has a lifetime subscription option ( as opposed to the annual subscription of $US39) so the $ US99 dollar one-off purchase  is a worthwhile investment.

What I really like about this tool is it’s no-nonsense ease of use.It also comes with a built in Code Editor so you have the power of JavaScript at your fingertips to create more sophisticated animations.

Although it has a comprehensive help tutorial I would have liked to see  more online tutorial videos. The videos available cover the basics and are well suited to get you up and running. The audio is a bit difficult to understand, which is a pity.

HERE IS A QUICK DEMO TO GET YOU STARTED.

Here is a link to the ATOMI Website.

Let me know if you would like us to develop something more specific for your Docebo use. API development options are available as well.

Happy  eLearning Designing ! !
