GDG Oxford - 'Smooth Criminals': Animation in Android



Smooth Criminals, Animation in Android

"How did they do that?!" How many times have you been just stunned, STUNNED by the work you see others do in a fully native app? Smooth, layered animations for every transition that work on even $20 phones? It's not magic and it may not be as difficult or as "mathy" as you might think. "Wow" effects that impress and delight! Stacy will be exploring how to use multiple ways to accomplish a standard set of animations and much slicker more complicated ones using native and external libraries.

From the native side you will cover topics like using the new MotionLayout, animation XML definitions, Material Design AppCompat included tools, moving through ObjectAnimators, Animation Properties, Listeners, View Animators, AnimationSets, even AnimatedVectorDrawables, Morphs, and libraries like Lottie. Finally finishing with going "manual" in Canvas to get that precise experience. You will learn what to use where and how for Best Performance and Best Practices.
