Motion Canvas consists of two main components:
- A TypeScript library that uses generators to program animations.
- An editor providing a real-time preview of said animations.
It's a specialized tool designed to create informative vector animations and synchronize them with voice-overs. It's not meant to be a replacement for traditional video editing software.
Aside from providing the preview, the editor allows you to edit certain aspects of the animation which could otherwise be tedious. You can learn more about this functionality in the time events section.
Motion Canvas is a free and open source project. You can help making it better by reporting bugs, proposing new features, or contributing to the codebase. If you're interested, our contribution guide will help you get started.
