Rewind|Forward • Animation Feature
What is it, what's for?
What if we redefined the way we share our experience with tools more ergonomic, efficient, innovative and attractive to our readers? Let's talk about tutorials for example, rather than listing a set of images one below the other for each step of photo processing, wouldn't be great to compare them overlapping, making the appreciation of most subtle adjustments obvious to the user while improving their reading pleasure? Rewind|Forward • Animation Feature, is my answer to this “linear” way to look at items online. I originally developed this tool to allow my readers to be able to very quickly and with high efficiency, see and animate manually an images list. The function is particularly simple to use: just move the mouse cursor over the image and the function is activated immediately, thus allowing, while you ride the cursor, to animate the list, image by image. This allows me to support beginners and amateurs in a logic of learning photography in a opened way, as I did it for my Before|After • Comparison Feature. If I have until then only pointed out the domain of photography, all the below examples will illustrate how the function is versatile. Folks, increase the value of your content by offering them a simple but real technical structure.
Why choosing it?
  • Simple tool, efficient and fun;
  • Free;
  • Display/Animate just anything you want;
  • Ideal for tutorials and training courses;
  • For everyone, photographers, illustrators, 3D artists, web designers, etc.;
  • For personal & pro. projects;
  • Say goodbye to basics post layouts with pictures placed one below each other, avoiding any easy comparison;
  • Impress you audience by using a new Web layout concept;
  • Cross-platform and soon for iOS!;
  • Class names are prefixed to avoid/limit any name conflicts with others functions.
As previously, I give free access to the source code of this tool so that more people wanting to share their work based on this principle, can easily do so.

Demos and ideas

Rewind|Forward • Animation Feature offers a wide range of uses. Whether you are a photographer, illustrator, 3D artist, web designer, trainer, etc., it will help you to showcase your own creations, training or tutorials, without ever losing sight of efficiency and simplicity for the user. The following examples will be hopefully varied enough to fully appreciate the field of application offered. Note that in order to illustrate the installation steps explained on this article, the source code of each demo is available just below each of them.
