In thinking about animation and complex masks, I came back to the Twitter intro animation.

How would you go about recreating this transition in Framer?


Fran Pérez

The tricky part is the masking, probably can be done using SVG masks.

Scale and opacity?

George Kedenburg III

you could get more clever and have a big blue PNG with the bird punched out of it, and scale that over top your layers

feedLayer = screenshot of twitter feed
whiteLayer = white screen-sized layer, beneath blueLayer
blueLayer = Blue PNG with bird shape emptied out

feedLayer.scale = 0.7 (not visible yet)

----scale: 10 (or however much)
--time: 0.7 (or however long)
--curve: "ease-in"

whiteLayer.animate .... (set opacity to 0, set the time duration etc.)

feedLayer.animate (set scale to 1, use a spring curve to make it expand past 1 and then ease back)

George nailed this one! But, what if my background wasn't a solid color, and instead was an image, or a gradient, or other Framer layers, which I want to remain in place?

Not sure if this video is going through? Whipped up something using Sketch layers.

here's an example using a CSS Mask, which can be animated with CSS: (it's also all vector)
