“In the Spotlight” is a design I was approached to do that was developed in collaboration with ajellebeans.
Set against a background that dynamically cycles through a range of colors specified by the user’s color palette selection, we designed and developed an organic feeling animation that glitters gently behind the user’s photo/video content. The challenge was to create something that wouldn’t distract the viewer, detract from the user’s photos and that wouldn’t hog all of the CPU resources slowing the slideshow to a unmanageable crawl. We settled on a relatively brief After Effects animation that we were able to implement on top of the existing framework (kudos for ajellebeans for making it loop smoothly).
