Ratings and Reviews
I've been looking for this!
For years now, I've lamented that "Flash is dead" -- not because I miss crashing browsers and security flaws, but because no successor to its throne had appeared to once again make 2D animation production fun and accessible to the hobbyist. Keyshape flew under my radar, but after finding it this week, I'm blown away: This feels way more polished than I'd expected, and is capable of creating animated SVG, Lottie, MPEG4 and Animated Vector Drawable files.
It's simple, affordable (no $#^&* subscription required!), intuitive, and above all, FUN! Big thanks to the developer, and I look forward to seeing what else Pixofield does in this arena.
I got Keyshape for vector animation after getting tired of open-source alternatives crashing every five minutes. Keyshape runs smoothly, is fairly intuitive, and is much more affordable than anything Adobe churns out. I’ve actually started using it instead of Affinity Designer to create non-animated vector images as well, since the tools are much more intuitive.
My only criticisms are more of a wishlist for the developers:
- Give an option to show frame numbers instead of seconds. Makes it easier to coordinate with other animation programs. (I currently use a spreadsheet to do conversions)
- Some more extensive help documentation. There’s currently only a short overview on the website and learning everything is a bit of a trial and error.
Other than that, I’m very happy with this program.
So far it's amazing
I'm using it to animate some effects in a web based mini game. It's exactly what I needed and so far I haven't had any issues.
The learning curve isn't too bad if you have used ANY animation tool before.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
