Animate your Story

In the Zazu editor you have the option to animate every layer on your slide separately. Learn how you can set up any combination you like:


Use animation to add motion to your Story layers. Here you can see how to do that:

Make your static Story slide look alive with animations. In Zazu you have two types of animations: "Entry" and "Exit". In the following we will take a closer look at both and how to combine them.

Starting with Entry animations:

Add an entry animation by selecting the layer and clicking on the section Animation in the inspector sidebar on the right
Activate the "Entry Animation" toggle and choose from many different motions and select a Speed of the animation, as well as a starting time with the Delay bar, and the direction of the animation with the Direction button.
Review the applied animation anytime by clicking the Preview Animations button

💡Tip: Full-screen medias will unlock four additional animation types called "Pan Animation" which you can apply only to full screen images or videos

Exit Animations function very similar to Entry animations. Simply activate the toggle, choose your animation, direction, speed, and delay and you are good to go!

Animated Stories will appear more professional and catch viewers attention. Feel free to play around!
