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.
