Pretty good , but missing a lot

I think it a good app for what it cost but calling it a professional moron graphics app is a stretch. It’s limited to 2 minute animations, and you can only import 1 video, and only as the canvas , but you cant use, for instance, green screen footage to place someone in front of something. Also you can’t import audio tracks. There’s a lot you can do, and it’s a good app, but it could be a great app with some more work put into it. This has the potential to be an iOS game changer for motion graphic artist and I’d gladly pay a lot more if it were developed more. To be blunt, we really need an after effects for IOS. I’d love to see 3d layers, cameras and lights.

Almost There

I’m left handed. Can the tool bar be movable or swapable with the layers panel?

Very unique app. I dig it. Some vector drawing capabilities would be pretty sweet as well but not necessary. Importing from Affinity Designer is fine but limiting. I’ll definitely pay extra for drawing features and an audio timeline.

You can do this. Good job.

Awesome Motion Graphics and Animation App

Core Animator is a great app with a very easy-to-learn interface. It has outstanding video tutorials that get you up and running in no time. Looping animations (hello, walk-cycles!), extracting elements from frames of video, easily set tweens for smooth animations, this is great out the door. There’s room for growth, but for a few bucks, you have a fantastic animation app that allows you to export high resolution video. It also has an export to X-Code function, which could be really useful for developers.

Definitely worth picking up!
