Customer Reviews


just confusing. Sometimes I’d have a handle on the use of it, then other times I had no idea what was going on. Add frame would just duplicate one frame. Took me a while to realize it was doing anything at all. then I tested to see if fram 79 would increase. It did. i was forgiving. decided to clear the frame... nothing. Try to duplicate the frame, and the duplicate clip would disappear. Someone mentioned that the colors are wonky. I could live with that for wonky type videos, but yeah the colors need to be improved. Don’t want to trash it, but I found myself doing more self doubt and attempted learning/troubleshooting than actually creating something and having fun. Honestly, all I want is to do a garbage cartoon with bad stick figury animation….like bad and haphazard, but I could not even accomplish that.

Very good app, but a few things missing

(I am using a macbook air) This is a great app! If you try to delete an animation/page with the delete button, the app quits. It also is missing copy and paste, as well as a editing for the actually shapes. If you are like me, a new animatior just wanting to make a MAP (multiple animator project) entry, fantastic app for that. If you’re serious about drawing and REALLY want to make a movie or something with animating, I wouldn’t recommend you get this.

Quits Randomly without saving

This app provides the oppotunity to create some visually stunning animation. However, that visually stunning animation won’t matter if the app keeps quitting at random times. Sometimes it properly saves my animation, sometimes it won’t. Either way, it is irritating for all my hard work to go to waste all thanks to a bug in the system. Other than that, this is a really useful application.
