Over 15 Years of Animation Design
Our contract work for the Navy was the beginning of our Pixel Perfect Animation service. The work involved the development of visual materials depicting the engineering support of new shipboard combat systems. We were successful because our technical background enabled a level of comprehension that provided us with the ability to conceive and produce the required content on schedule and within cost.
Much of the work was in the development of interactive DVD’s and other multimedia products that were provided as program briefings to the highest levels of Navy management.

Lottie vector animations are very modern and their use will definitely move your website beyond the competition. Lottie’s are an important part of our Pixel Perfect Animation program, as they enable line art animation, character-based animations, and dynamic logo animations.
While zooming in on GIF graphics will cause them to break up and appear very pixelated, Lottie files appear smooth at any size and at any speed. The file size is possibly the biggest benefit of Lottie files … up to 3,000 times smaller than GIF. Also, there are over 10.8 million colors available as opposed to the GIF 256 color limit.
Lottie’s are named after a German film director and the foremost pioneer of silhouette animation. Her best-known films are The Adventures of Prince Achmed (1926) – the oldest surviving feature-length animated film, preceding Walt Disney’s feature-length Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937) by over ten years.

First impressions count, so bringing your content to life will not only make your site more attractive but also make it more dynamic and modern.
When user interactivity is needed then HTML5 keyframe animations are the answer because they enable not only hyperlinks and buttons but also user intervention (clicks & mouse-overs) to re-direct the course of the animation.

Videos take time to watch – a couple minutes at the very least. They also produce sound. GIFs offer a much more convenient, faster and totally silent way to express something. It’s a good combination between image and video. Animated GIF’s are essentially a mini video, with no sound, that can be watched from start to finish in as little as one or two seconds in a simple, auto-looping fashion.
