Animated Mockup (swipe devices) UX/UI

Just wondering if anyone had any advice/ tutorials or plans to release a video on how to animate mockups of how features work on a website like the ones you see on dribble?

Is it just knowing after effects well enough to achieve this?

can treehouse release a blog / video?

Upon further research ... yep, pretty much.

> how to make smooth .png animations

Also, it's worth noting that only gif supports animation not png

While James' answer is technically true that PNG files don't support animation, the extended format, APNG does.
