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.

Great for Beginners!

I think this is a great app for beginners, like me, that wanna animate, though, I think it should add a feature to customize the size of the writing tool you’re using. I did find a bug, but I don’t know if it’s the app or it’s just my device, because sometimes when I export it as a gif, it move only a few frames per second and it sometimes even skips some frames, so I would like you to fix that if you can. Overall it’s great, I’d get it.
