View Full Version : [ubuntu] GTK Animations

March 30th, 2010, 06:08 AM
Hey guys.
I am working on a little project and i was wondering if it was possible to create GTK themes with animations?
If you don't quite get what i mean, i'm talking about actions such as collapsing a branch causing a scrolling effect instead of an instant collapse and also buttons causing a smooth scroll transition etc. I could draw a mock-up if needed.

Is this possible with GTK? Or anything else for that matter, and if so i would like to know how to implement this or what steps i would need to take to be able to.

Many thanks.

I am not sure, but I think GTK is becoming integrated with clutter, which uses opengl. That might make what you want possible. It may be already though, you will have to wait for the experts to get back to you.

Thank you very much, this seems to be a step in the right direction.
Thanks for the quick reply.

I am no programmer, but I know that someone is making a fork of nautilus with cover flow view. I am assuming they used clutter to make it. The netbook remix launcher and the upcoming gnome shell are written using clutter.
