Where We're Headed
Without giving too much away ;)
Here's some of the dirty laundry we're planning to wash this year.
These are top of mind for us
but they're in no particular order,
and there's no guarantee that we'll get to all of them.
Isn't everything a part of Flow??
Yeah, all the things are... whatever.
Here's a few nice things for you to chew on.
Add animatable gradients
Add gradient panel
Update windows for Big Sur
Improve license registration
Speed up Figma import
Honestly, ezgif and Handbrake both do pretty amazing jobs.
That said, it's always nicer to have more export options right at your fingertips.
Add framerate option
Add colorspace options
PNG compression options
PNG add alpha option (On / Off)
GIF global color map option
GIF add alpha option (On / Off)
Video add format option (Mov / MP4 / M4V)
Video add codec optoins (Prores4444 / Prores422 / H264 / HEVC / JPEG
GIF color palette select guaranteed colors
It's 2021, we should have some user prefs already.
Add user preferences panel
Default relative mode (on / off)
Default anchor point
Default snapping behaviour (on / off)
Global easing curves
How many kinds of SVG export do you want? All of them!
Single frame export to SVG
Improve playback performance (if possible)
Add preserve aspect ratio option (On / Off)
Add looping opion (On / Off)
Add loop count
Move to media export menu
Once again, the excuse of bootstrapping comes to our rescue.
We'll get you some snapping soon.
Add point / pixel snapping (On / Off)
Calibrate snapping stickiness options
Shift-dragging should allow 45° movement
Add hot key and menu item for toggling snapping (On / Off)
Snap to grid lines when changing the height / width of a layer
Timeline snapping should be more magnetic to keyvalues
Add Snapping to Easing Curve window
I feel like a broken record.
But, it really is a big job.
Add ability to double click on text layer to change text
Accurate text transforms import
Accurate line height import
Accurate letter spacing import
Accurate paragraph spacing import
Accurate frame import
Add UI elements for line height / letter spacing / paragraph spacing
Exporting code is our hallmark
So having a few extra tweaks to make your life easier is exactly what we're going to do.
Mask images to the bounds of frame and preserve shadows in iOS exports
Expose autoreverses and repeatCount in Timeline subclass initializer

Butter just makes everything taste better.
In UI Animation and Design, easing curves are the butter.
Unless you're vegan, then I guess easing curves are like an exquisite virgin olive oil.
Add spring curves to easing curve window
Create new spring curve property panel
