Hippo Animator is an easy-to-use program to create cross-browser animation and export it to web pages. The animation will work in most popular up-to-date web browsers and in some old ones not only on PCs, but also on iPhones and tablets. Hippo Animator allows this all without istalling any extra plugins.
At first glance, it seems that the program is a little bit childish. However, such an interface will be of a great help for beginners while learning how to create animation. Also, the application offers a great 'Help' material including video tutorials and step-by-step instructions. Moreover, it can create stop motion animation automatically, so you will not need to edit every frame.
At the same time, professionals will also be satisifed with the program. The included image editor allows you to resize, scale, rotate images and add various effects to them, like noise, blur, contrast,etc. It's also possible to add buttons, music and sound effects to animation. Moreover, Hippo Animator lets you add YouTube videos to animation movies, and create phone widgets. To conclude, it is an all-in-one program to create great looking animation and interactive movies.
- Animations can be played in old browsers.
- Works on iPhones and tablets too.
- The translation of the Help material to some languages is awful.
