by Bogdan Sandu
on February 24, 2016

Both Shopify and Magento are well-established ecommerce platforms whose business consists of providing online-store operations for every type of interested business owner.

These AE animations can be exported as GIFs and used to demonstrate how a UI should behave. Examples may include swiping through a photo gallery, sliding open a menu, performing a search, or anything similar. I’d like to share some ideas about why you might want to learn After Effects and start creating these animations for your digital projects.
