Using animations is part of the web design routine. One of the latest innovation in web design is using Html5 animations to avoid the use of Flash.
Html5 animation tools allows you to design and create simple animations that work particularly well with websites.
We have listed such tools for you to try out. If you have any insights into which of these tools work well, we welcomed your comments and feedback.
Google’s html5 animation tool is currently one of the free options available. The only downside is its tight integration with Chrome, meaning you need to use Chrome browser to do the design work. There are some Chrome specific codes being used, which means additional work when you want to have the same website presentation for different browsers. I guess that is one way Google is trying to push its browser platform but with a free tool as a carrot. I don’t mind making the switch.
Tumult Hype's keyframe-based animation system brings your content to life. Click "Record" and Tumult Hype 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.
Another key frame based html5 animation tool. A5 also offers a free version that you can download with some restrictions on the use. If you like what, you can consider upgrading to the premium version.
Mugeda is a browser based Html5 animation tool that comes with all sorts of features such as analytics, templates etc. The free version has limited use on some of the advanced features but you can still get some work done.
If you just want to create html5 animated graphs, then Chart.js is the right tool. It focuses on chart generation so the features are more comprehensive in this regards, relative to the other more general html5 animation editor.
With Purple, you will create beautiful HTML5 animations with ease. Purple animations can be viewed on mobile devices and on your Desktop.

Motion composer brings a lot of features and controls for the web designer. Their prices do reflect the fact that it is a premium product. Fortunately, you can still thinker with their trial version which is free to download.
