Types of Plugins

There are three types of plugins:

  • The Effects
  • The Animations
  • The Players


Effects are plugins that, as implied by their name, provide a set of effects to be used on Clip elements. Examples of Effect plugins are plugins that provide CSS attributes animation capabilities, svg elements' attributes animation capabilities etc.


Animations plugins provide ready to use animations, including both context (HTML, CSS, or any other visual context) along with effects applied to it. Most of the times they are very parametric allowing the user to pick colors, text and/or any other parameter that configures the animation characteristics.


The Player plugins implement custom players for MotorCortex Clips. More details regarding Players can be found the "Execution" chapter.
