Welcome on board! Please introduce yourself 🖐

Hey everyone, new Hype Pro user here!

First of all, I’d like to thank the Tumult team for creating such an incredible piece of software, I’m an AfterEffects user and everything in Hype just made sense and clicked almost instantly - within two hours of downloading the trial I had imported some svg graphics, animated and published my first animation! (you can see it here if you’re curious, scroll down the page and it should start playing automatically).

Ok, a bit more about me:

  • I’m Diego Rodriguez
  • I’m a graphic designer/web developer/animator
  • I live in Buenos Aires, Argentina
  • My first language is spanish
  • Only a little animation so far (see the link above)
  • I’m a beginner on Hype, but advanced hotoshop & After Effects user
  • My favorite animation tools are AfterEffects and Cinema 4D (and Hype :slight_smile:
  • The first animation tool I used was 3DStudio 1.0 (for DOS - yeah I’m old!)
  • Fav animated film: Wall-E

Cheers!

-Diego

Those are very nice - they are subtle enough to not be distracting but still provide a visual improvement to make the page less static!

This thread is fun. I don’t think I ever introduced myself on this forum. I am Max from Germany. Grew up in Spain and England. Now I call Berlin my home. I started programming with Locomotive Basic on a CPC464 from Schneider and haven’t stopped since but always had loved the graphical side of things even though in the beginning that was 16 colors (shades of green) and 320x200 pixel and manually addressing the graphic memory. Actually all it took to get me hooked on computers at an early age was something like this …

10 PRINT "    /\     "
20 PRINT "    ||     "
30 PRINT "    ||     "
40 PRINT "    /\     "
50 FOR I=1 to 40
60 PRINT "           "
70 NEXT I
80 GOTO 10

This was a flying rocket on screen pushed up through the empty rows in the loop (50,60,70). One could even use an additional loop counting to 100 to delay the computer. Funny to imagine that today.

Slightly off topic. But then again not. Pascal, C++ and Autdesk Animator. Later I fell in love with the ad-industry and worked for agencies with Flash, Aftereffects, 3Dmax and early Photoshop.
These days I use Sublime, Hype, still Aftereffects and still Photoshop.

I came to the Mac around Steve Jobs return in 1998 and left behind Dune2000, Doom and Syndicate as I was a PC-User at the time. Stayed with the Apple ever since and love it. I changed to getting things done with Mac OS 8/9 away from screwing with motherboards and reinstalling Windows 95 for the 5 time in a year.

I owned Datasetten and streamertapes in my life.
TextPad was my goto Editor on MS DOS.
Norton Command was my buddy on the PC.
BBEdit was my first Mac Texteditor.

I love Hype as it reminds me of Flash witch I started using under macromedia. Flash 4 later took off like hell. Then again Hype is so much more as it is structured with it’s own logic but still open to all the HTML/CSS and specially JS-stuff. Flash back then was more like a little island and Flash 4 introduced programming to expand it … proto.layer51.com (now offline) was a little code heaven for devotees to the product. I maintained some code there. A animation library based on Robert Penners easing functions and a XPath like XML-Parser (XMLObject/XMLSA). To say it in the words of AS1:

tellTarget("../hype") { 
    gotoAndPlay("yourock"); 
} 

I guess I am a slight nerd at times but have evolved to love good music, cooking and philosophy.

This is my second time returning to this forum as a weekly driver. Hope this time summer won’t blow me away to new shores as I still got some ideas …

Hello everyone!

I am Raff, an editor at SnailDriver.com, free tool that keeps drivers on people’s pc up to date. In the meanwhile, I am working with a team focusing on the development of hosting-related apps.

It is the first time that I know about Tumult, and it looks interesting. I built my site using an auto-builder that I thought is the most advanced tool I’ve ever used, now I am going to have a close look at Tumult.

Hi, I’m sort of a long-time-brand-new to hype user. I’m not a web developer. I’ve been a product designer, UI/UX designer and 3D modeler in the games industry.
I experimented with hype when it came out in 2011. I loved what it did but it didn’t match up well with my production needs at the time.
I’m now working on a portfolio and thought this would be a great tool for the job!

I have been studying @DBear’s and @h_classen’s examples among others too.

cheers!

Hi! My name is David Duncan.

I work in advertising and I use Hype to create animated banner ads for websites.

I live in Los Angeles, CA.

My native language is English.

I recently completed an entry for the Vector Animation contest, a short piece titled ‘Morning Coffee’.

I consider myself to be a ‘mid-level’ to ‘advanced’ animator, however, I am very much a ‘beginner’ when it comes to coding and interactive design/animation.

My background is in Adobe After Effects, and it is still a favorite tool of mine, but I also really enjoy Cinema4D.

My first animation tool was After Effects.

Despite my career choice, I don’t have a favorite animated film!

Nice to meet everyone! I’m very happy to be here.

  • What have you made with Hype – or what are you planning on using Hype for? (Feel free to post screenshots or links!)

I use hype for interactive ads, slideshows, video exports recreations and such. I’ve played around with hype in the early days but at that time it was more of an experimental phase. It wasn’t until 2016 that I got heavily into it thanks to hype pro.

Hi, my name is Barry (biflower7) and I’m new to your forum–just signed up for an account. I’m a beginner who would like to be able to create animated gifs for my (non-commercial) personal website. I’m trying to get some INFORMATION that will help me decide if the Tumult software application is right for me. It sounds like what I’ve been looking for (outgrown Giphy online), but I need some answers.

I’m running a Mac OS Mojave and my website is not a Word Press but a Wix platform (if that makes any difference). I contacted Tumult support yesterday, asking if I needed to know HTML code, and Danial M. was good enough to get back to me: “You do not need to know HTML to use Tumult Hype, but it is helpful.”

Okay, but how far can I go without needing the “helpful” HTML? At what point? (How much code do you have to know to find it “helpful”?) Does this mean, say, I can create amateur gifs that will suffice for an average personal website, but if I want to get really professional then I need to know code? I’m hope it means this, because I don’t have the time to learn more than the simple standard HTML codes. And if this means that I stay at the level of what is possible with Giphy, then I don’t want to waste my time (and maybe money) learning the application only to find out, after a lot of time spent, that this application isn’t for people–complete novices–like me. I’m looking to create eye-catching gifts for my website, but not the state-of-the-art kind that only a professional could create.

If anyone can help me with this, it would be greatly appreciated.

PS: Can’t decide what my “favorite animated film” is. It’s a toss-up between Yellow Submarine and Aladdin. :wink:

Thank You,
Barry
