This question already has an answer here:

I recently read this article (https://uxdesign.cc/design-better-data-tables-4ecc99d23356) about data tables. The article contains a bunch of uses for data tables. To communicate the ideas, the author is using some animated gifs if the data tables.

My question is, does anyone know what tool was used to create those animated designs?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


You can use adobe premiere to create any type of gif or video or adobe animate if you want something more like drawings, for example to make animations for 2d cartoons. Adobe premiere is more general and allows you to edit frame by frame, add animations on some objects, edit sounds; you can use it to create videos or gifs

We're looking for long answers that provide some explanation and context. Don't just give a one-line answer; explain why your answer is right, ideally with citations. Answers that don't include explanations may be removed.

Based on the article you linked, it seems you are interested in finding the best way to prototype.

You've got a couple of choices here and it's something worth following as there are constantly new tools being developed to help with the prototyping stage.

I agree that though the gifs could be created in Premier, it's not the ideal option as there are more efficient ways to accomplish this.

From my experience, the Invision app is the common solution. It can be coupled with your Photoshop or Sketch files to enable prototyping. If Sketch is your preferred tool just this week Invision has announced prototyping within Sketch which you may find useful.

That said, Adobe XD is now available on both Windows and Mac for free download (it's in a powerful Beta state (detailed here by their Director for Engineering, Vincent Hardy) and is updated monthly). This will give you the opportunity, to build, prototype and provide the relevant specs for your designs all in one spot.

Hope this helps!
