Remember flip books? Making your doodles in the corner of a book move as you flip the pages quickly.

It's an early form of animation, but for an updated version, getting Animatic is the right move. You can create your own short animated videos and GIFs and share them with your friends.

Unleash your creativity and draw your own animated stories.

To make your animation flow, you need to pay attention to the links between the frames. Animatic lets you trace over your last frame, visible on the screen in light ink, as you do your drawing.

Let's take a look at how this works. Tap on the ‘+’ in the upper right corner to create a new animation, and begin by drawing a cartoon of a dog lifting its leg. Then hit '+' to get the next frame, this time with your last frame faded out to model your new drawing on. You can keep these earlier outlines on screen to make the dog's movement look more natural.

The tracing feature helps you draw life into your animations.
