It's like the best parts of Flash but far less expensive

Having been a long-time Flash animator, I searched in vain for an app with its timeline and keyframe workflow... until I found this one. It's the first and only I've seen that provides layering on a timeline with ability to auto-tween between keyframes and export to HD video. Even the "movie clip" and "graphic clip" concepts translate over into Compositions and Drawings. Nested compositions are automatically linked and updated. The ability to do frame by frame animations in a clip and set the speed is here, too. Motion tweening is even easier with just a drag of the finger/stylus. Are there drawbacks? Yeah, a few. No audio support. (Bummer.) So you'll have to re-synchronize any SFX or narration using a video editing app. I'd also like to see the text tool be able to be used within a drawing object and not just a composition. (Just a tad of a pain to have to create a drawing object and a composition object just to get text together with a drawing.) Another nice feature might be importing PNG imagery into the drawing frames as visible, not just guides (though the ability to do guide layers is certainly helpful, too.) Overall, for how little this app costs, it's a gem and well on its way to being my complete Flash animation replacement.

Love this App & Responsiveness of the Team

I LOVE this App - it is VERY powerful, and I love to use it with my students. (I am an elementary art teacher). Yesterday I was worried that all of a sudden it was crashing when using the brush tool. I contacted them, and they had already submitted an update to Apple. It was fixed today. Nobody's perfect - this app is near perfect, and the responsiveness of their team is what makes me trust them to keep it that way. Thank you! ps, I recently discovered that you can begin by tracing directly over an image, or even rotoscope a video clip.

Fantastic!...Just needs some additions. :3

I just got this app and it's amazing! :D I absolutely adore it! Some nice additions to add would totally be;
1. Music. Maybe being able to choose audio from iTunes or the audio from videos on camera roll.
2. A problem I've been having is that I can't scroll down on the info and settings bars. I can't go any further then where it says "ghost frames" :/
3. An airbrush would totally be awesome! I use an airbrush in almost all my drawings so that would be really nice to see.
Thank you for reading! :3
