**Anyone can be an animator. Any idea matters.**
Building upon the success of Animation Desk for iPad and iPhone, Kdan Mobile has taken a step forward to migrate the Animation technology to Apple’s Mac platform.
The main idea of Animation Desk for Mac is that it mimics the real-working environment of animation production on a specifically designed desk, namely the animation desk.

The new Animation Desk for Mac takes the fun of creating animations up to a whole new level. Users can enjoy an improved interface as well as significant performance upgrades that allow fast and smooth rendering of multiple frames. The app also supports the use of a drawing board and a mouse, allowing users to transfer their freehand drawn sketches directly into the computer.

*Share your works with friends on Facebook
*Upload animations to YouTube
*Transfer animations between different iDevices and enjoy animating anytime, anywhere.

With the new Mac version, everyone can enjoy the fun of creating their own animated pieces of art. You don’t need to be an expert in the complex field of animation, all it takes are your own creative ideas and you will be surprised at how easy Animations Desk allows you to “breath” life into your creations. Animation Desk for Mac features a user-friendly interface, detailed explanations for each tool and a clearly arranged control panel, ensuring that users can make use of the app’s full potential.

Animation Desk for Mac makes a perfect platform for anyone who desires to bring creativities to life, in providing users an easier and cleaner environment than the traditional way to produce animations without lacking any essential animation creating element.

Sharing your work couldn’t be easier with Animation Desk for Mac since it allows you to upload your work to either Facebook or YouTube in no time. Animation Desk for Mac is not only a drawing app, but it is about inspiring, creating and sharing.
Become a part of the fantastic and surprising world of animations and discover the power of unlimited creativity now!

Customer Reviews

Has potential, but still pretty bad

This app has serious problems for people that really want to animate and don't waste their time finding out how to do things. I'll list the things that I don't like:

1. The developer says that it fully supports Wacom tablets. NOT TRUE. I own a Cintiq and an Intuos 4. The back part of the pen on both doesn't work as an eraser, just as a pencil.
2. The full screen mode was scam and it’s now finally fixed. OR IS IT? Once you go to full screen, there is no turning back your only way is to close the app and start again. Ridiculous.
3. The number of frames that you can onionskin. C'mon, only 2? The user should have the option of choosing how many frames he/she wants to see on the onion skin.

Righ now, I seriously regret buying this for 10 dolars. The app is small (and the full screen option is terrible), not enough onion skin frames, no support for Wacom tablets.

Fix those things, and I'll gladly change my review - this is a product that might become the standard for animators, beginners or advanced ones.
