Even though Voice automatically incorporates unique motion graphics with every theme, the drop-in animation effect allows you even more control over how your images or icons appear. Drop-in animation makes it look as if an object dropped down or rose up onto a page, and is a great way to add an element of surprise within your story. You can use this trick to show different steps in an explanation of a concept or just use it for dramatic effect on particular points you want to emphasize.
Voice Community Manager Rikk Flohr explains the secrets of drop-in animation in this week’s Tip & Tricks video, showcasing how a teacher could explain Neil Armstrong’s 1969 moon landing with an animated astronaut:
Every Voice theme is unique to ensure that each of your videos is different – which means that drop-in animation works within certain themes:
Side-by-side drop-in works the best in the following themes — Simple, Dayglow, Swing, Signal, Colorful, Film, Playful, Ginger, Valencia, Candy, Satin, Schoolbook, Opportunity, Relaxed, Impact, Tradition, and Technical.
Icon over image drop-in works the best in the following themes — Simple, Dayglow, Spotlight, Valencia, Argyle, Bullseye, and Vivid.
