Its alright but a few complaints

I like the idea and the program but the fill tool is a bit clunky because it auto fills everything instead make it like adobe illustrator draw where you hold it and if the shapes arent connected and closed they can’t be filled and this app is confusing to work with. The videos provided are confusing to say the least. Also another gripe I had with it are the brushes they aren’t plentiful enough in opinion.I also feel there should be more brush customization. Ex. A gradient brush that’s starts off dark and goes lighter I would give it. If these thing were improved/made better I would give it a 5 star rating.

Huge potential, but disappointing

Great interface for traditional animation mired by poor drawing tools. Important clean-up process is made difficult if not impossible as consequence. Lines drawn are extremely jagged/pixelated with any given tool (Don’t look at me! I am an atelier-trained artist with a very steady hand). The actual pixel resolution of the frames and stage themselves outside of their general proportions (4:4 / 16:9) is a mystery.

It’s okay for (very) rough pencil tests and is suitably inexpensive, but it could use a better brush engine, and perhaps vector layers among other things. Looking forward to seeing the developers take this software further; if they research and steal from their competition a little more this could be an incredible tool.


I just play around with animations, so works for my needs most of the time. More tool options would be nice. Biggest frustration is that I can't find any way to copy part of my drawing onto another frame.
