Providing spatial origin and departure references helps reinforce mental models of where users are in the UX. Noticeable but not distracting in peripheral vision. People read from left to right in Western cultures, and hierarchical diagrams flow from top to bottom.
Visual Hierarchy Animating the order that page elements load on the screen can display the visual hierarchy of the page. A progress icon appears while the submission is made followed by a checkmark animation that completes the action.
The rule of thumb is to Ease Out objects that you want people to pay attention to especially new UI elements coming into the scenewhile letting the unimportant objects leave the scene at a top velocity. Play animations at the optimal speed: Selection feedback To appear responsive, strive to play animation within 50 milliseconds of selection or deselection.
Anticipation is a really powerful principle that can be used both in the beginning and end of your animation. The user has been drawn through these functional spaces to the ultimate destination.
Guidance and anticipation Enable the reader to anticipate the effect their clicks, taps, or other gestures will have. Solve distractions, not discoverability. In doing so, the following strategies suggested by gestalt principles are helpful.
Relationship animations must start or end with the selected object. Click feedback To appear responsive, strive to play animation within 50 milliseconds of click down event. Onboarding Animation can help create interactive onboarding.
Simply put, motion is more than just decoration.
Another problem of UI animation is bad taste. That was a year ago. Functional motion design will: This gives you more control over the user experience as a whole.
Noticeable in peripheral vision, but not demanding. Consistent meaning is crucial to effective communication. The Illusion of Life.Properly created transitions can onboard and orient your user faster than any flashcards. Always think about the perceived user experience instead of abstract “number of clicks”.
Animated transitions [2,6,44] in interactive systems are aimed at conveying to the end user a transition between states, views or scenes [16,18], e.g., to foster a smooth transition between two scenes , menus  or images .
Dribbble — Marcus Forsberg Attract User’s Attention. NNgroup states, “an effective way to use animation is to attract the user’s attention.” The benefit of drawing the user’s attention is to guide their focus to show hierarchy and relationships between screens and elements on the screen.
Animated transitions are an important part of graphical user interface design practice. They can help to guide users’ attention and highlight changes in the interface.
However, there is only few empirical research on how such animated transitions influence the users’ perception of an interface. Non-realtime means that the object behavior is post-interactive: it occurs after a user locking the user out of the user experience until the transition.
However, there is only little empirical research on how such animated transitions influence the users' perception of an interface.
We therefore aim to investigate how different animation principles for animated transitions in mobile applications influence perceived user experience.Download
