Animations We (Really) Love
You may have heard about the Vector Animation Contest, which was a chance for our Beta testers to show us what they could build with Hype 4’s new vector tools. Below are the winning entries, which mix jaw-dropping artistry with an adept mastery of Hype.
As you may have guessed, these were all created with Hype 4, and we’re super excited to bring this new capability to the wider world beyond our beta testing team.
