It’s almost there, just one thing wrong.

The merge function has been restored thankfully and works great with the animation I’m working on. The one thing for me is when there are a lot of frames in an animation it starts to lag and miss frames out which makes it look very jumpy and it’s hard to record voice because when you click on a frame (when there’s a lot of them) it clicks on the wrong frame which is quite weird and annoying. It might be my phone, I’m not sure but if other people have this issue then please address it so it’s fixed. But all in all the app works and it’s layout is very easy to use and make great but ‘short’ animations.

Drawing RotoScoping

Hello developers or developer.
I have used the app for 4 weeks now, over all great experiences.

One area I like is to have a response to emails to my questions before purchases please.

Improvement areas would be in RotoScoping the drawing experience is anything in fine detail like 0.5 with a Apple pen appears not to work. I like to be able to rotor screen and not by hand. As in to rotate the screen physical is a backwards way of thinking.

Frame by frame from using the RotoScoping is basic not much details can be added. Think Procreate take away 100 % and your their.

This is not a negative, just something you can improve upon.

Such as adding back ground layer maybe a green screen in RotoScoping. At the moment you have to do this frame by frame !

The other areas of time line and stop motion are good very good.
I did add a back ground colour in the menu like green screen but was unable to add to whole time line.

Especially like the head phone jack for press to take images while in stop motion.

At the price a person wishing to buy cannot complain.
I like to see more on line videos to explain and answer questions.

These I found limited to my questions.
Last thought stop motion is your name
The name cat eaters I suggest change :)

As your running under cat eater llc

Might present some interesting ideas from some people

Amazing 😉

I’ll start with the badish news first ... The one and only thing I am here to moan about is that the adverts for in app purchases . These are so annoying and hope that you can cut down on how many you use.

Now for the silver lining... this app is the best app I have got for filming and editing . I am at this moment creating a big (like super big ) project on Pokemon eeveelutions with a big group of friends 👫. Anyways I will stop rambling on and just say that if you are debating whether or not to get this app then I would say get it because you should and hope that this apps developers like this report ... Bye !!
