How to animate your illustrations

Any vector graphics can seamlessly come to life in Linearity Move. But before you bring in your chosen illustration, take a second to tidy up those layers. Keep things organized, and make sure all the elements you want to animate are on separate layers. This little step will make your animation journey a whole lot smoother. Next, open Linearity Move and simply import your design file. Everything will appear in the timeline in the same order.

Whether you’re animating a character, a landscape, or an abstract pattern, it’s important to take the time to think about how you’d like your elements to move. Consider the flow, timing, and overall impact you want to create. We suggest starting with animating the background elements first, gradually bringing the foreground to life.

Easily add motion to your selections by a simple drag to change position, rotation, or scale. Alternatively, experiment with presets for animation effects like blur and fade, or effortlessly incorporate position and scale changes with just a click. Every change generates a new keyframe on the timeline. From there, you can easily adjust the timing of any movement.

If you have multiple scenes, add smooth transitions between them to keep your final animation engaging and seamless. You can play back your changes immediately, allowing you to enjoy a smooth and glitch-free animating experience that keeps up with your creative flow.

When you've perfected your animated drawings, it's time to export your project and share it with the world. Linearity Move enables you to save your videos in up to 8K resolution, ensuring a high frame rate throughout. This means your dynamic content can be displayed across various platforms, from social media posts and ads to web banners and even animated billboards.
