Hype for Mac lets you create stunning animated and interactive web content. It's used by leading designers to create animations which add a "wow" factor to web pages, infographics, presentations, digital magazines, ads, iBooks, educational content, app prototypes, portfolios, animated GIFs, videos, entire websites, and much more.

Note: Instead of buying a license for this app, at Setapp you could get access to this one plus another 230+ commonly used macOS apps for only $9.99/month. CLICK HERE to download and install all the apps you need for a single monthly price!

Hype for macOS won the 2011 Macworld Editors’ Choice Award. And its HTML5 output works on all modern web browsers and mobile devices like iPhones and iPads. No coding required.

Features and Highlights

Animate in a Snap
The tool’s keyframe-based animation system brings your content to life. Click “Record” and the app watches your every move, automatically creating keyframes as needed. Or, if you’d prefer to be more hands-on, manually add, remove, and re-arrange keyframes to fine-tune your content. It is easy to create natural curves by clicking and dragging on an element's motion path to add bézier control points.

Infinite Possibilities
Tumult Hype for Mac is a “blank slate” type of application for creating content. The tools provided are powerful and encourage experimentation; the possibilities of what you can build are endless.

The Power of HTML5
HTML5 powers the modern web and allows for content to be displayed on everything from desktops to iPhones and iPads. Tumult Hype outputs state of the art HTML5, CSS3 styles, and JavaScript.

Note: 14 days trial version. Requires 64-bit processor.
