9 HTML5 Animation Tools

Here are some amazing HTML5 animation tool that lets you do really amazing things all without Flash. Enjoy !

Google Web Designer

Google has launched Google Web Designer, a new beta app for creating animated online content such as adverts or other moving graphics, all in HTML5. The Windows and Mac app aims to streamline the post-Flash online world with the option of code or graphical animation creation, for those of differing comfort levels with CSS and JavaScript. Although Google intends it to be of primary use to advertisers, the software may well follow GIFs in becoming the platform-to-have for eager Tumblr users and other social addicts.



Moonbase, the first project of Lodwick’s new company, Elepath, replaces hand coding with a visual editor that enables users to create animations with custom text, images, colors, movements and more. Results vary based on a user’s prowess with the tool, but the founder envisions the service as a fertile spawning ground for memes. Moonbase even has support for sharing animations, and the option to fork existing creations, allowing users to put their own spin on works of art. The service is free in its current state, but Elepath is contemplating charging for tools aimed at pros. Hit the jump for a video of the service in action or click the neighboring source link to give Moonbase a go.

Adobe Edge Animate CC

Adobe has broken out the various functionalities into multiple applications. For example, to develop graphical animations designers and developers use Edge Animate. Adobe also released Edge Code (GUI/Code Hybrid), Edge Reflow (responsive design tool), Edge Inspect (test and view responsive designs) and other useful tools that as a collection provide a lot of assistance in workflow and development of web designs. Each of these applications stand alone as well as can be used in conjunction but serious web developers, including myself, have been slow to migrate to these tools as they are not cohesive and still under major development.
