Can't wait to try it! What I love about Haiku is that the file it exports plays well with Lottie. This is not a tool that is creating a closed ecosystem, but one that connects with and improves existing workflows. Kudos for that.
I once mentioned that an opportunity for a new product would be: A design tool that is to After Effects what Sketch was to Photoshop and Illustrator. For vector animations Haiku may be it.
Looks great! I just applied for an invite : )
How does this compare to Bodymovin? What's the type of file that Haiku exports? I've been an advocate for Bodymovin + Lottie for some months now , and I created a module to incorporate Bodymovin into prototyping with Framer .
I'm curious to know whether or not this would be compatible with Bodymovin or if Haiku's engine can be ported to other tools (like Framer).
Also, I see that Haiku features interactions and states. Is this a different code layer on top of the animation or does it come bundled with it? Would the code change depending on platform?
I have lots of questions! Thanks and good luck : )
I'm curious to know if the AirBnb team has plans to work together with Hernan Torrisi  and build features on top of Bodymovin, that would be great.
And by the way, in case someone from the team is reading, please give a shout out to Hernan Torrisi whenever you have a chance!
Kudos to Salih Abdul-Karim, Gabriel Peal and team for developing Lottie, but the next time you're invited to a podcast or you're interviewed for an article, don't forget to mention Bodymovin and its creator. Lottie has a big dependency on Bodymovin, it would be great to see you sharing the spotlight with his project and his work.
Long live Lottie : )
 Hernan Torrisi, from Argentina, is the creator of Bodymovin.
Posted under ShowDN because it could be considered a project focused on connecting people from our community.
This effort was inspired by Stephanie Hurlburt, she recently asked about designers interested in making a list like the one she did for engineers. The idea is to help connect mentors and mentees.
If you're in a position to help, please reply to get added to the list. Even 1 hour per week to answer emails/tweets would help. Share to aspiring designers if needed.
Great answer, thanks for the detailed explanation.
Any time-saving tips regarding common mistakes newcomers make when designing UI for VR? Broad question, but looking for advice around your 5th step "Learn how to combine them with your existing UI knowledge".
There are a lot of good tips and suggestions in this thread. I just want to add another perspective:
Patience and persistence.
Learning new things
Mucha suerte Pablo y Lumen! Ya lo estoy escuchando : )
We don’t believe this should include the ability to code
The stack is not full then. /s
This is one of the weaknesses of our community. I check DN every day for news, but discussion threads rarely add value (that's on us, tbh). Just compare this thread to the same one in Hacker News. You'll find what you asked for: additional context and thoughts on this acquisition.
Just note how the comment that was downvoted to oblivion in Hacker News is the one that has the most upvotes here.
