Animation is anything but easy. That is, unless you’re using our 2016 iPad App of the Year. SketchBook Motion’s first trick is ditching insider terms like “keyframe” and “timeline”—instead opting for wonderfully natural words like “wind” and “rain.” It’s SO much easier for us to wrap our heads around, and the simple tutorials and excellent examples help, too. Of course it’s got Apple Pencil support—it even offers an iMessage App so we can share animations in a flash.
I have been searching relentlessly for a descent animating app to bring and give my characters life sorta. This is very good with good animating techniques and controls but I can’t drag and drop any of my pictures I would like to animate from Sketchbook. That is my only problem cause I was able to drag and drop my first picture I wanted and animate it but when I tried to drag and drop another pic from the same files, it wouldn’t work and it would just fade into nothing. I don’t know if I’m doing something wrong but any help would be great. This is a very good app and I recommend it for the other beginning animators searching for an animation app.
Definitely not what you think!!!
I downloaded this app because I wanted a good animation app that I didn’t have to pay for. I also knew that this company was good (I have sketchbook and absolutely love the program! And it was free). However, saying that this app was very disappointing would be an extreme understatement. This app has only three types of animations. And you can only animate one part. For example, if you want to animate a stick figure that’s picking up a flower, instead of being able to animate just the arm or the head, it animated the whole thing. If you animate the arm to pivot up, the whole stick figure body shifts up. Annoying right?
The tool selection is mediocre, only being a pencil, paintbrush, air brush, pen and two erasers. Also the color range is minimal but sufficient. Would have been usable if the app served its purpose. For the extremely simple animation, you could make do, but for me, just a recreational artist, this app does nothing for me. Very disappointing because I know this is a good company.
