Course overview

Become a Rive expert and build professional quality interactive animations

Why Rive?

Rive allows you to create interactive experiences that are unlike anything else. You can create animations that react to mouse position, microphone input, user text input, scroll behavior, and external data sources. Anything you can think of can be done with Rive's editor and runtime code.


Master the interactive animation tool that companies like Duolingo, Figma, Brilliant, and Metafy use to bring their websites and products to life. Innovative creators are adopting Rive due to its powerful state machine and runtime libraries that allow you to create interactive experiences that run everywhere.


Whether your background is in design, animation, web development, or something else entirely, we'll combine these skills to produce custom interactions that will surprise and delight your website visitors.



Through instructor-led workshops and individual course projects, you will master Rive:

🎨 - Design & Animate modes

🦴 - Bones, constraints, and meshes

🔤 - Text animation and runtime updates

🧩 - Animated "components" with nested artboards

🧠 - State Machine inputs, listeners, and logic

🔉- Events for sound, URLs, and advanced integrations

<> - JS runtime implementation (no prior JS experience needed)

🤏 - How to keep your Rive file sizes tiny and performant.


If you can imagine it, you can create it with Rive.

Who is this course for

01

Web designers who want to create sites unlike any other.

02

Animators who want to move beyond single-timeline animations into fully interactive work.

03

Developers who want to harness the power of Rive through custom JS runtime code.

What you’ll get out of this course

Rive Fundamentals

Design and animate in Rive. Become familiar with bones, constraints, image meshes, and other tools to create the motion and interactions you want.

Rive State Machine Deep Dive

Transition your animations from one timeline to another using simple logic. Use inputs to control animations and listeners to interact within the Rive canvas.

Add Rive to your Website

We'll use the Rive JS Runtime and JavaScript to integrate Rive animations into your site. You'll learn how to make animations react to other page elements and external data sources. This is where your imagination is the only limit of what can be done!
