UIView animation VS core animation

I’m trying to animate a view sliding into view and bouncing once it hits the side of the screen.

A basic example of the slide I’m doing is as follows:

  • How to fill background image of an UIView
  • How to convert a UIView to an image
  • Swift: hitTest for UIView underneath another UIView
  • Changing a frame in viewDidLayoutSubviews
  • Problems animating UIView alpha
  • A UIButton in my subview won't work
  • // The view is added with a rect making it off screen.
    [UIView beginAnimations:nil context:NULL];
    [UIView setAnimationBeginsFromCurrentState:YES];
    [UIView setAnimationDuration:0.07];
    [UIView setAnimationCurve:UIViewAnimationCurveLinear];
    [UIView setAnimationDelegate:self];
    [UIView setAnimationDidStopSelector:@selector(animationDidStop:finished:context:)];
    [theView setFrame:CGRectMake(-5, 0, theView.frame.size.width, theView.frame.size.height)];
    [UIView commitAnimations];
    

    More animations are then called in the didStopSelector to make the bounce effect. The problem is when more than one view is being animated, the bounce becomes jerky and, well, doesn’t bounce anymore.

    Before I start reading up on how to do this in Core Animation, (I understand it’s a little more difficult) I’d like to know if there is actually an advantage using Core Animation rather than UIView animations. If not, is there something I can do to improve performance?

    With Core Animation (Layer based) you can do much advanced things, like 3d animation (embedding your view in 3d space).

    UiView animations are quite powerful though, and shouldn’t be a performance bottleneck until you have plenty of them. I only see one example in your code, and its duration is extremely short. In fact, you are almost setting the frame property instantly (70 ms is 14 fps). You should think of UIView animation in terms of start, end, and the duration for the whole distance – which is typically 0.2 s to several seconds. It is not designed to to fire one micro animation after another.
