AMAZING, except for a few suggestions

This app is great. It has so many features and tools, and it's so fun to use. But I do have a few suggestions.

- There should be an option to merge objects. I know there is a grouping option, and that's great. But the problem I have with it is that I make stick figure animations, and I want the stick figures to have a solid outline, without having to draw the outline, because then it technically wouldn't be a stick figure. But when I select all parts of the stick figure and add stroke properties, it adds them to all the shapes used in the stick figure, and not a solid outline around the stick figure. If I could merge the objects into one, this wouldn't be an issue.

- V-Cam. I understand that you can do camera movement in the composition editor, but I don't like using it very much. It looks weird in the animation. There are certain times where it is useful though, so I recommend you keep it, but I would still like to be able to animate camera movement without it looking so robotic.

Now, here are some more minor things that I would like in the next update.
- Blur effects
- More brushes. Ex. Airbrush, effect tools, marker.

Overall, this app is amazing. It's by far the best animation app on the App Store, in my opinion. These are just little suggestions, and you don't have to add them. Thank you for reading :)

Almost great!

As a profesional animator I have to say this app is close to be the best animation app in the store. It is to my knowledge the only vector based animation app in the store (which is great for me since I'm a Flash/Toon Boom animator)
I am able to animate very fast with it. The simplicity of the app is definitely a plus.
But it needs to be implemented with a few more basic key features like camera, audio support, PNG image sequence export, custom color palettes and also more control over keyframes in the compositing area (copy, paste, timing interpolation etc...)..this is a lot of fun and I strongly recommend it this App!....keep up the great work and improvement of this app!!!.

Needs some work

It's easy to use and all, but I'm having a few issues. I'm barely at 60 frames, and I can't watch it the whole the once, then half of it wont load? As I add more frames it gets harder to draw with. It kind of lags and makes lines instead of curves, and the undo is super slow.

Im patient with it because it's one of the best I've used, but it needs fixing. Often I have to swipe out because it freezes up. I'm going to split up areas to the song so I can at least finish the animation.

It would probably be in your best interest to fix these issues, if you want people to share their animations, maybe you'd be able to get more downloads?
