Adobe Voice

A new app from Adobe lets you make your stories come to life, ideal for pitching ideas, explaining a concept or inspiring action. The app records your voice so you just talk to tell your story, and it comes with icons and images to help create visuals which the app automatically animates for you.

See videos made with the app on the Adobe Voice website, or download the app for free on the appstore

The illusion of life

“The 12 basic principles of animation were developed by the 'old men' of Walt Disney Studios, amongst them Frank Thomas and Ollie Johnston. These principles came as a result of reflection about their practice and through Disney's desire to use animation to express character and personality.”

Animator Cento Lodigiani has illustrated these principles brilliantly, and uses them to bring a cube to life. As many have noted these animation techniques are increasingly coming into play for interface design in apps/websites.
