The beauty of flip books is that they can range from simplistic to extravagant and, what’s more, anyone can make one. If you want to take your page corner doodles to new heights, FlipaClip: Cartoon Animation will help you to create fantastic frame-by-frame animations similar to a flip book.
FlipaClip’s layer function is a terrific tool for any animator. Once you draw the background on a layer, you can reuse the same layer for other frames.
Just as you can see the outline of the picture that was drawn on the previous page of a notebook, the app lightly underlays the previous picture, making it easy to draw the next part in your animation. If it helps, you can overlay grids to guide you.
By default, you can add up to three layers and with an in-app purchase you can add up to 10.
If you don’t want to draw from scratch, you can import an image to work with and even use a video to create a rotoscope animation, which gives a wonderfully life-like effect. You can add audio too and a premium version of the app opens up an extensive audio library. Once you’ve finished animating, share your creations via your social channel of choice.
FlipaClip puts the power in the hands of animators, whether novice or pro, and the results are a real page-turner.
