Read an Excerpt

From the Author:

The most important feature in LiveMotion is its ease of use. No matter a designer's level — be it beginner or advanced — LiveMotion makes vector drawing and motion design easy.  

A lot of people have been thinking of it as a "Flash Killer" but that's totally missing the mark. The strength of LiveMotion is that it integrates static and motion design with numerous output options.  

You can create a single Web graphic, rollovers, a Web page, a Web site, or a multimedia presentation. Then, you export to a variety of formats including HTML, HTML and JavaScript, animated GIFs, or Flash. LiveMotion doesn't limit anyone-you can create a design once and produce it for numerous environments.

Aside from all of that, LiveMotion is just plain fun!
