Download Core Animation: Simplified Animation Techniques for Mac and by Marcus Zarra PDF

By Marcus Zarra

Attempted Dudney's ebook first and lower back it since it was once virtually solely for the Mac and never iPhone - spent many pages at the animator proxy which doesn't exist at the iPhone. So, i used to be completely satisfied to work out this e-book released by way of impressive and a professional authors. notwithstanding, this one's going again to Amazon too.

First of all, this ebook is very dear for under ~200 pages, a lot of it code and long directions on developing initiatives. i guess the fee is due to the colour printing on virtually each web page (code examples, screenshots).

Second, a lot of this publication is directed solely to Mac devs with just a token 18 web page bankruptcy devoted to the iPhone that frankly doesn't even fit the standard of documentation and examples supplied via Apple (for free).

Part I with Chapters 1 & 2 is nice to first-class, yet bankruptcy three which covers easy Animation doesn't point out iPhone even as soon as and back spends loads of time at the Animation Proxy item. bankruptcy four discusses Keyframe Animation and does supply one reliable instance for the iPhone (there may be DOZENS of these in a booklet on center Animation for the iPhone). besides the fact that, Chapters 6, 7, eight & nine disguise subject matters now not to be had at the iPhone in any respect for a complete of seventy eight pages (remember out of ~200 pages) for over a 3rd of the booklet. bankruptcy eleven talks approximately interacting with a mouse and keyboards (again, now not for an iPhone).

So, i am nonetheless watching for a publication on center Animation for the iPhone with out code that begins with "NSxxx" that teaches me how one can make my very own view transitions (e.g. like in a slide presentation), dissects a number of real-world examples of average makes use of of animation applicable for the iPhone utilizing layers extra, and UIView tools much less, and was once no longer first written basically for the Mac and converted just a little to entice iPhone devs (Core Animation truly got here first to the iPhone OS in response to this book).

What you should animate, well, let’s face it—that is entirely up to you.

If it is, return NSNull. The CATransaction class is the Core Animation analogue to AppKit’s NSAnimationContext object we used in Listing 3-2 and 3-4 for windows and views.
