Exit animations

Hate to see you go, love to watch you leave! Keep your element on the canvas or exit with style.

Each image or text element that you add to the canvas has three animation stages that you can customize:

  • Entrance animations
  • Emphasis animations
  • Exit animations

Top tip: Entrance animations are used for all elements, but Emphasis and Exit animations are optional and allow you to add more movement to your element. 

This article covers all the options you have for the Exit animation stage. For details about the other stages see our Entrance animations and Emphasis animations articles.

Exit animation types

Select your element on the canvas or timeline and click the ‘Animation’ tab in the right-hand panel to display the animation options.

    • None - your element remains on that canvas
    • Fade out - your element becomes increasingly transparent producing a fading effect
    • Move out - your element moves off the canvas in your chosen direction
    • Slingshot - your element is pulled slowly in one direction before being released and quickly moving off the canvas in your chosen direction 
    • Disappear - your element instantly disappears
