Ready for the new look? Let me introduce you to Letters in Motion 1.1.0, Banjo. This major release has a whole new look that focuses on a more fluid user experience. We've bolstered the help system, redesigned the navigation and menus, and added some great new features.
The most obvious change for anyone who has used Letters in Motion before is the navigation. All navigation is now done through the Go button located in the top right corner of every workspace. From there, you can navigate just about anywhere within Letters in Motion.
In addition to the Go button, we have changed the name of the Animation Workspace to the Tweening Workspace. This is to reduce confusion between the Animation Timeline and what was the Animation Workspace. Tweening (short for in-betweening) is defined on wikipedia as "the process of generating intermediate frames between two images to give the appearance that the first image evolves smoothly into the second image". In other words, it means the act of adding animations, so it seemed a fitting name for the workspace.
We've put further effort into really defining these workspaces by adjusting the looks of the tracks. Now, tracks in the Project Timeline and Animation Timeline look slightly different from each other and are labeled with either a content type (Project Timeline) or animation type (Animation Timeline).
3D Fonts Banjo has the framework for our new, experimental 3D fonts. We are really excited about all of the future 3D features we will have available in the coming year. The features available now include better Depth recognition and some new 3D fonts for you to play with.
Long Tap Help System The Help System has been completely redesigned. Some of the more difficult tools now have a Tool Tip prompt that appears at the bottom of the screen. These Tool Tips can be made smaller or turned off entirely from the Options Menu. In addition, every single button throughout the tool has a help topic assigned to it. If you don't know how to use a tool or don't understand how one of the menu options works, simply tap and hold it, and a help screen will appear.
More Rendering Options We've added more rendering options for the more professional users. For this release, the screen of your device must be at your desired resolution or better. Don't fret about trying to figure it out on your own. You will only be offered options that match the criteria.
Camera Roll Loading By popular demand, you are now able to add images from your Camera Roll (iOS) and Image Gallery (Android). Although you are still unable to save your video to the camera roll, you may now save your video frames to your Camera Roll and Image Gallery.
History Button Want a more robust Undo button? You've got it! The new History button includes an interactive history with context specific display.
Thank you all again for sticking with us and I hope you enjoy the new update. As always, we look forward to seeing your creations. Please keep up with us on our blog and follow us on Google+ and Twitter.
