Bring your ads to life with iAd Producer’s broad selection of page transitions and object animations. iAd Producer includes everything you need to add a little motion to your creative: wipes, fades, spinning effects, cube transitions and much more. You can even create sophisticated effects by adding and removing CSS classes, and animating object properties such as position, opacity, image mask, size, color, and shadow.
iAd Producer manages all of your visual assets in a convenient asset library, easily accessible from the home screen. Your images, movies and SVG and OpenType fonts can all be part of your work. You can search all the assets in your project by name, or filter the list for specific file names, locations or types. Instead of spending your time creating assets for different devices and network speeds, iAd Producer manages all necessary versioning for you, so that you can focus on building the best possible experience for your users.
With the layer list, iAd Producer gives you quick access to all of the layers on your page, allowing you to enable and disable any of them with a single click. Managing complex projects with dozens of layers is a snap. You can even search for layers by name.

iAd Producer checks your work to identify common errors and help you make sure that your ad is ready for prime time before you submit it to iAd. iAd Producer automatically checks the size and type of image assets, and ensures that pages and components are configured correctly.
