How animation leads to higher engagement

Animations aren't just the extra flourish in your design process. They've become essential components to capture your audience in a digital landscape with fleeting attention spans and fierce competition. The keyword here is engagement

Animation is a powerful tool for capturing and retaining audience engagement. According to recent research, interactive content garners twice as much audience engagement as static content. Video content has also been found to generate twice as many conversions compared to passive content.

A significant 80% of users on your website are more inclined to watch a video, whereas 20% are likely to read a piece of written content.

Consider the subtle animation of an online ad changing color or the smooth transition between frames in an animated social media post. Though seemingly minor, these details create a seamless and intuitive user experience that holds your audience's attention.

But as anyone who grew up with Disney understands, animation goes beyond functionality. Animations evoke emotion and personality, injecting life into even the most banal stories. Whether a playful bounce effect or a sophisticated fade, animations can communicate complex concepts and narratives in a digestible and visually compelling way.

You have static designs but want to animate them. Innovative solutions like Linearity Move are reshaping traditional animation creation methods, offering a glimpse into the future of animation design.

Traditional methods

  • Manual processes: Traditional animation methods often involve manual processes, such as complex tools or frame-by-frame drawing, which is time-consuming and labor-intensive.
  • Long ramp-up time: Designers accustomed to graphic design processes may require extensive training and expertise to master complex animation tools and techniques.
  • Technical constraints: Traditional animation software may impose technical constraints on designers, limiting their creative freedom and hindering innovation.
  • High production costs: Animation traditionally requires a specific skill set and intensive process, leading to extended production times and high costs.

3 animation features to streamline your process

Linearity Move streamlines animation creation and empowers designers to unleash their creativity. Here are three standout features that make Move a game-changer in animation design:

1. Auto Animate

Imagine if you could leave all the nitty-gritty details of animation to Linearity Move. That's where Auto Animate steps in.

With this dynamic feature, all you have to do is prepare a vector design file (.curve, .svg, .figma, .ai, or others) with key moments of your animation as individual Artboards or Frames. Once imported into Linearity Move, the software automatically interprets the movement of elements between each Artboard.


For instance, if a shape transitions from the center of one artboard to outside the canvas in the next, Auto Animate seamlessly generates the animated transition. No need to painstakingly create each "in-between" frame yourself.

Pro tip: If you want to make the animations your own, you can easily fine-tune each movement by adjusting the animation curves directly. Even better? Move effortlessly repositions, resizes, or rotates any element directly on your canvas and automatically generates keyframes in the timeline with each adjustment.

2. Animate and Design Modes

When creativity strikes, the last thing you want is to disrupt your flow by switching between software. Linearity Move makes things smoother by allowing you to stay immersed using its innovative dual modes: Animate and Design.

In Animate mode, you fully control your animation and timeline management. From adding presets and effects to morphing shapes and editing animation curves.

Design mode empowers you to adjust your animation's design properties instantly without leaving Move. Whether fine-tuning colors, reshaping elements, or swapping out images, this mode enables on-the-fly modifications without switching between interfaces. 

3. Linearity Curve integration (and more integrations coming)

Switching between Linearity Curve and Linearity Move is seamless in Move's intuitive interface,  integrating your workflow. As you open Linearity Move, you'll discover all your Curve files neatly synced to your library. A simple double-click on a file allows you to initiate the animation process.

While traditional file import methods are still there, expediting the process by transferring your Curve Artboards to Linearity Move through a simple copy-paste action saves time.

The Assets Tab in Linearity Move is also a handy design hack, synchronizing with its counterpart in Linearity Curve. This ensures all your design elements are readily accessible in both interfaces and ready to be animated.
