Interesting comment on their site related to not fully supporting CSS3:
“As mentioned above, Purple has its own data and representation model, which is independent of the output format. Our goal is to reach best performance and smooth animations. Right now, we are focusing on the iPad and we will support our own animation framework because users don’t care if the underlying technology is web-based. They want a flawless user experience.
Some features that are dead-simple to do in web views have to be implemented from scratch in our animation framework. The price to pay for performance and flexibility is that Purple is not supporting all features from day one.”
I haven’t tried either of them, but they both look good.
My problem is that I do a bit of animation for slideshows etc. on a free basis and if either of these branched out into exporting different filetypes I’d jump on them, so a quick question:
Does anyone know of a programme very similar to these 2 that can output to .mov, .mp4, .flv, or similar?
Thanks in advance.

This is all good. Competition and that. Purple is about £7 more than Hype’s introductory price, so it’s not too pricey, considering what it’s doing IMHO.
I’m looking at Keynote to do some short animations
for individual web pages. Would something like purpleanimator
be better for this?
Not really, unless all you want to do is have the presentations viewable on the web. HTML5 and CSS are pretty much web technologies only.
The other downside to both Purple and Hype is lack of audio tracks. The lack of audio in both is specifically related to a deficiency in html’s poor support of audio.
The animation capabilities are excellent for both, but only as far as they support web standard html5 output.
Adobe pretty much has the animation market locked up with AE and Flash, but maybe something like ToonBoom would interest you. Or something akin to Keynote like Fotomagico or Pulpmotion might work for you.
The animation I’m looking to do is just for a website.
I just checked all the animation suggestions, and
I was blown away by Pulpmotion 3 Advance.
The Museum templates is just what I was looking
for without knowing that is what I was looking for!
Terrific piece of software for the price and also very
important, ease of getting up to speed.

Oh course Photoshop has it’s own animation capabilities as well.
