Squall

A tool that lets you create complex animations for your iOS app in Adobe After Effects. Squall’s After Effects extension reads the active composition and outputs any relevant animation data to a sqa file. The sqa file can be used with the SDK to build a production-ready, code-based animation. For simple animations Squall can even generate Core Animation code right in After Effects. The extension also manages the communication with your iOS device, allowing you to quickly preview animations in the Squall app or your own app running the Squall SDK.
