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.
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 Animatoris a Windows only desktop software application that has a two tiered price:
We have just purchased a lifetime licence to this neat authoring tool.
It’s calledSaola 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.
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.
