Video Tutorial: Script.aculo.us Effects

View Tutorial Script.aculo.us is a JavaScript framework that is built upon the wildly successful Prototype JavaScript libraries. Script.aculo.us allows web designers to create engaging user interfaces quickly and easily, due in part to the animation effects it is famous for.

In this tutorial, we will look at a few of the more useful Script.aculo.us animation effects and how website designers can easily use them in their websites. We’ll take a look at the ubiquitous “highlight” effect, various methods of making content appear and disappear and finally create a simple JavaScript that will combine effects to create advanced user interface possibilities.
