Good, But Needs More

This app is ideal for anyone trying to take animation to the next level. But, the app is $31 Australian dollars, and I only get some more textures, which is great, but some more features would be nice. Overall, only buy if you have used animation desk free, and you want to expand. Kdan did well on this app.

Anyone u know ,

Couldn’t want more

I really love animation desk, when I first got it I spent ages trying to learn where everything was, but once I learnt where everything was and what everything does it was by far the best animation app I’ve ever had. One of my hobbies is actually movie making, and this was perfect for my movies.

Developer Response ,

Hello, thank you so much for sharing your experience, we are deeply encouraged. We wish you have a good time making movies!

Improve pencil suppot

It will be better to disable hand input when a pencil is connected.

Developer Response ,

The app enables palm rejection when it’s connected to an Apple pencil. However we found out that the canvas moves along the palm in certain angles. Is this the case in your comment? Thanks for the feedback.
