Great App So Far!!

I found this app last night and it has been a joy to use! However, and I hate to sound picky, but I would like to offer some suggestions.
I wish it were easier to resize the image you paste in so that I didn't distort the picture itself. Perhaps by letting it use two fingers?
Also, about images, I seem to have trouble finding the dimensions for the frames themselves, as I believe it would be even easier to create backgrounds that fit them in the frame. Other than little things like that, the app is perfect!!

Awesome but needs a little touch

I’ve been loving this app but I think it’s a little laggy. I was making an animation to a song I love and every time I go desktop to see frames, I had to log out and get back in.
I also was processing a 1 minute video and it took 20 minutes.
I wish that when you add a video for animations it could add sound. Other than that, it’s the best animation app I’ve ever used.

It's really good but

I've been using this app for awhile now and I really like it it's just there's no tool to blend and most of my animations and stuff need to be blended it would be fine if I could import images that I've already drawn and can duplicate and edit them from within this app I do recommend if you're a beginner (like me) it's not complicated and you'll love it
