It’s feature rich and versatile so that you can create cool effects on your pages with ease. Layer Magic was engineered for smoothness – it will find the perfect balance of quality and performance for the device it runs on.
When it comes to building advanced animations, Layer Magic orients more toward technical artists, since you will need to be able to create your assets and also to carefully adjust all the settings in your project to achieve the desired result.
To build your animation you upload images or videos to layers and change their properties using key-frames.
