Animated Swipe for mobile?

Postby jpatten » Fri Sep 27, 2013 8:16 pm


I'm wondering if I can utilize AE to incorporate nice animations for swipe on mobile platforms. For example, I have a group consisting of a couple text fields and buttons. Is there a way to use constrainrectangle, ease in/out, bounce, etc. that would create the ability of the group to be manipulated so that when a user swipes their finger on a tab, the groups slides out from the top or margin? I'm sure this could be scripted in straight LC, but I'm wondering if AE may save some trouble in creating this?

Any examples of this strategy floating around out on the interwebs?

Thank you!

Hi John,

the most complicated part here is determinating that the user swiped. After that, a simple aeMoveTo will do the trick.

Have a look at the script in this stack to detect a swipe..
