Amazing APP!

I’m an amateur animator that creates hand drawn cartoon shorts. Normally I’m hunched over my light box, but had been looking for an app so I could work on projects while I’m out and about. A friend told me about Animatic, and I love this app! I like how the next frame has an imprint of previous drawing for easy animating. I’m unsure if there is a frame limit, but just completed my first cartoon on the app, and used 116 frames, which I think is really good for a free version of the app. Comes with some decent drawing and editing tools as well. Greatly considering purchasing full version!

So much fun, ruined by bug.

This is one of my favorite apps for iPad Pro. I love making animations and, when it works, the software is very charming and appealing. However, at this time about 2 out of every 3 animations I create are effected by a bug that causes the some of the frames in the animation to appear incorrectly. Usually they appear as though they are in a previous state. It looks like I selected one or 2 frames and un-did the last several drawing marks. When I select edit the frames look as intended, but when I select done and watch the animation, the frames appear modified. It even exports the .psd files with the frames altered. I have the 6 month paid subscription, which I paid for not for the extra features, but in hopes it would make the bugs go away. I wanted to stick with it and wait for the bugs to be gone, but it is extremely frustrating to spend an hour or 2 on an animation, only to have no way to save or share or view my final animation as it is intended to look. I will not be renewing the paid subscription, and I will likely cease using the app. Which is real bummer. It’s so fun when it works.

This bug should be resolved. Sorry for the inconvenience, and thanks for the feedback.

Not worth the money

I got this because I thought it would be easier to use to animate then my drawing app is because it’s actually meant for animation. It was really hard to use with limited options and confusing interface. You can’t rotate your canvas and it is difficult to zoom in. Most of the pens I would never even use in a regular drawing. Also there were no layers, which are very Important to me as a digital artist.
I noticed a lot of glitches too, my frames would just suddenly go back to a previous point in the drawing. The onion skin just wouldn’t work most of the time. Just a lot of things that were frustrating to work with.
In all honesty if I knew what this app would be before I bought it I would have just downloaded flippaclip because it has the same if not more features then this.

Thanks for your feedback Joshler Shipper. This is the first time we've heard that the interface is confusing, or that the Zoom (reverse pinch) is difficult. We respectfully disagree that Animatic is not worth the money ($9.99 lifetime cost) for an advertising free, watermark free product. We wish you the very best, and appreciate you taking the time to write a review.
