Adobe has announced the availability of LiveMotion 1.0, its new Web graphics and animation software.
The company says there have been 360,000 downloads of the public beta, which was made available in March.
LiveMotion lets users draw or import vector images, independently animate an object's attributes within the object-based timeline, use named labels to cue events, and assign interactive behaviours to individual objects. It works with time-based rather than frame-based animation, and supports native layerd Photoshop and Illustrator files.
It also outputs to a wide range of graphics formats, including GIF, JPEG, PNG, Photoshop and the SWF (Flash) file format. Future versions will support SVG (scalable vector graphics).
LiveMotion 1.0 costs £189. The Adobe Web Collection 2.0, containing LiveMotion, GoLive 5.0, Illustrator 9.0 and Photoshop 5.5, will be available in the summer (after Illustrator and GoLive have shipped) for £665.
