1. Subtle Animation Website Trends
One of the trends for website design this year is subtle animation. What makes it subtle is that is serves a purpose on the website but doesn't make a big statement. Wix.com has several ways to add animation to your website that communicates the message of your website.

2. Motion Project Top Hat Wedding Save the Date
In this Motion tutorial, we will complete the Save the Date project by adding the design elements that will frame the optional text area. The client can add their own Save The Date details to the .mov background clip, using many apps such as Motion, iMovie and Final Cut Pro.

3. Wix Parallax Effect
One nice animation found on Wix websites is the parallax scrolling effect. It's not a true animation but it does add the illusion of movement, depth and dimension to your webpage.

4. Overlay Transition in Motion
In this Motion tutorial, we will work on the transition between scenes for out Save The Date project. The purpose of this transition is to fade out the title text and other design elements for scene one, leaving the screen empty for the next scene.

5. Shooting Star Animation In Motion - The Stars
In the last tutorial, we began building our marketing video for the Children's Storybook Template Series iBooks Author project. We used the Motion Path Behavior to move the text on to the screen. Now we will use the keyframe animation to drop and bounce our purple spider character in to the scene.

6. Programming the Color Game in Hype
In the previous tutorial, we imported the images for a coloring game for iBooks Author that we are making in Hype Pro. Now we will add the interactive elements to the game.

7. Pumpkin Pie Bumper in Motion - The Pie
In this tutorial, we will work on the first part of the animation that will move the pumpkin pie on to the screen and add the whipped cream.

8. Using Text Sequence Behaviors in Motion
In this Motion tutorial, we will add the animated title text for our Save The Date video project. This will complete the first screen or scene of our project.

9. Pumpkin Pie Bumper in Motion - The Apples
In this tutorial, we will continue working on our Pumpkin Pie bumper. At this point, we have completed the animation for the pumpkin pie and whipped cream. Now, we will import and animate the caramel apple graphics in Motion.

10. Pumpkin Pie Bumper in Motion - Finish
In this final tutorial, we will complete the Pumpkin Pie bumper project. We will add a colored overlay that will cover the right half of the screen and create a text area for our customer to add a text message. This could be a great bumper for a food blog.
