What is Hype Professional?

Hype Professional is the most advanced app for creating stunning animated and interactive web content. Hype Professional extends Tumult Hype 4.1 as an In-App Purchase, adding new and powerful features.

Fueled by HTML5

HTML5-based content can run across all modern browsers, phones, and tablets. Because Hype Pro is based on Hype 4’s highly-compatible runtime, it can even support older browsers like IE 6. The goal is to bring the bleeding edge of web technologies to everyone.

Design without Code

Visual designs should use visual tools. The tweak and reload cycle is over, as is banging your head against CSS. Hype Pro’s philosophy is to make common animation tasks easy, and complex tasks possible. If you really want, you can still get your hands dirty with code.

A Joy to Use

A professional-grade tool must be ergonomic for extended use. Snapping, guides, recording, and intelligent app behaviors make Hype Pro the most intuitive animation app out there. This saves time and frustration — its ease of use does not take away from its power, it adds to it.

Responsive Layouts

With an average of 40% of web visitors on mobile, today’s sites need to adapt to a wide variety of screen sizes. Hype Pro makes building responsive pages intuitive by offering different layouts to be shown at specified breakpoints.

Symbols are scenes-within-a-scene for component reuse and to help manage document complexity. Persistent symbols share master across scenes. Through Custom Behaviors, symbols can notify other symbols to perform actions.

Animate elements with natural movements and collisions without keyframes or code. Easily control bounce, friction, air drag, and density. You can even set the gravity of a scene to be based on a device’s rotation for compelling realistic effects.

Run actions/timelines in response to elements entering or exiting the viewport from a visitor scrolling to that point.

Timing Functions

Hype Standard comes with 29 built-in timing functions, and Hype Pro takes this further allowing custom modification of the easings with precise bézier path control. New! JavaScript-based math equation timing functions give unlimited possibilities.

Grid System

Rearrangeable UI

Hype Pro’s interface panes are fully adjustable, allowing you to fit the interface for how you work or how your content fits best.
