Our iOS dev's asked me to use Quartz/Origami to make animation prototypes as they said it was closer to native animations.
Are framer JS just as close, has anyone used both?
Framer are too smooth, sorry ;)
it's because of that damn wired article...
Lol, I think your right. Other problem is i'm making a landscape iPad app too, but saw third party add ons
ReboundJS spring configs are compatible with Origami. I'm sure there's a way to translate Framer spring configs into Origami compatible.
I've been using ReboundJS with Framer directly which simplified this considerably. I haven't taken the time to open source that yet though.
what article Noah Tsutsui?
google "wired quartz composer"
I remember koen did some work about this. https://gist.github.com/koenbok/e9a0f7d763ac28eda880
Are they using the fb pop animation framework?
yes that is the main reason so the Origami values and Pop can look the same. Something that hasn't been ported to JS
