After the login animation, here is another animation for SocialBase app. Hope you enjoy it.
I'll appreciate your thoughts :)

Nice! Have your tried using less spring on your animations in this design for smoother transitions? It did feel a little heavy for me, not sure if I'm the only one but I typically minimize movements on elements or make them more subtle during transitions.

Stephen Crowley this kind of thought I'm talking about! Thank you for your comment, and yes, I already thought about don't use too much spring. But can you share or suggest something you think that can fit in this animation? :)

Stephen Crowley

No problem- and I appreciate you being receptive to open feedback. This to me exemplifies the power of Framer, where you can iterate on these nuances quickly. Animations are tough because it's how something feels, which is harder to quantify- so to me, what stands out is the heavier spring of the animation on elements like the profile/identity of the person. You wanted to call attention too it I assume, so I think it's achieving that but want to make sure that was your intent.

João Paulo Villa Mello

I want to grab attention, yes, but I want to make more soft transitions, and I know this is more related to animation principles and how to combine one or more effects.

I think I will play a little with some easing curves to see the outcome of that.

What do you think it's heavy? The profile image transition? (from a little circle to a big rectangle)

Stephen Crowley

The bounce/scaling up and down. I think the transition from circle to square is really nice, it's the bounce after that I was specifically talking about. I wonder if less of a bounce would do it.

João Paulo Villa Mello

It's better with less bounce, I'm doing some experiments now, I'll post the results here in a while, but hey, thank you for the comments! I really appreciated your thoughts :)

Stephen Crowley

Awesome! Can't wait to see your next iteration.

Thomas Law

Nice, it's very Material.
