timecodes/ pasting a frame multiple times at once

trabitboy 3 years ago • updated by Jona (Co-Founder) 3 years ago 3
When working in the storyboard view,
something I end up doing quite often is duplicating a frame 5 or 6 times to add "time" and test the rythm of the short movie before animating the interval.

It's a bit repetitive, just adding the option to "paste n times" in the storyboard view would increase my daily productivity :)

Timecodes might be a more complex solution to that.

This is definitely one of those areas that we will begin improving very soon and a lot. 

Your suggestions are great and are right on what we are looking into.

Thanks for the feedback!

Can I have my projects back? (Idea and problem)

Anonymous 2 years ago • updated by Jona (Co-Founder) 2 years ago 1

I think that maybe instead of letting people keep their movies when they redownload it, they should also have their projects back. If possible can we please have them back? My username is AerialLps 156.

Answer
Jona (Co-Founder) 2 years ago

Hey, thanks for giving us your feedback. So what you are suggesting is something we are thinking about and planning to resolve. Currently, it isn't easy because of how we are storing your projects.


One thing you can do meanwhile is to backup your projects to a file. You can do that from the home page. Simply long press a project and press on the cloud icon.

Onion before alpha start and end setting needs swap

Anonymous 3 years ago • updated by IanJTurner 3 years ago 4
Just a small detail - the 'Before' sliders on the Onion Skin settings are the wrong way round. Alpha Start should be frame 1and Alpha End should be frame 10.  Confuses me every time! :)
Answer
Jona (Co-Founder) 3 years ago
I see what you are saying. So the start is where the main frame 0 is at, and frame 5 are the ends. We did it thinking on a left to right style but what you are saying makes sense since the main focus is frame 0 and from there it goes out.

Improved Move Tools

IanJTurner 2 years ago • updated by Jona (Co-Founder) 2 years ago 2

The copy/paste tool is really useful and although it seems simple at first, after working with it for a while - and doing some lateral thinking - it actually enables a huge amount of labour saving functions. I recently discovered I could copy/paste between projects - which is great when splitting an animation across several projects.


One thing that would improve it though would be a more accurate method of placement when moving a selected area around. The ability to lock movement to the x or y axis and a function whereby one could nudge the selected part of a drawing a single pixel at a time would be superb.


There is a tool that does this in Autodesk Sketchbook, and I find it invaluable, as accurate alignment using the stylus on the screen is almost impossible to achieve.

Jona (Co-Founder) 2 years ago

Thanks Ian for the input on this area. This is definitely planned feature to improve.

Bookmarks/Key Frames

IanJTurner 3 years ago • updated by Jona (Co-Founder) 3 months ago 4

Hi

I have yet another suggestion for a feature that would be very useful and, I think, possibly quite straightforward to impliment.


When animating in the traditional way, with pencil and paper on an animation disk, one will often add or remove drawings as the action one is animating progresses. This is one of the advantages that hand drawn animation has over, say, stop motion. You can do your drawings in whatever order you like, and you can go back and add details and secondary animations as often as required.


To replicate this flexibility in FlipaClip, you could add a Bookmarks feature.


As an example; if I had an action that was made up of nine drawings from frame 12 to frame 20 and I wanted to go back and add a secondary action (maybe a cat's tail swinging as he jumped onto a wall), I would start by making my first drawing on frame 12 and then my last drawing on frame 20 (these are known as 'extremes' or ' key drawings'). Next, I would probably make the halfway drawing on frame 16.


I would at this point only have three pieces of paper on my drawing board, and I could easily flip them as I drew to check the animation. Of course, currently in FlipaClip, I would still have all the other drawings inbetween, making it difficult to flip my three drawings.


If I could add bookmarks to frames 12, 16 and 20, and have Flipaclip completely ignore all the other frames whilst the bookmarks were active, this would replicate the traditional technique I've outlined. Then as I added my inbetween drawings, I could add and remove bookmarks accordingly. Then, when boookmark mode is deactivated, I could playback or flip the animation as normal.


It's actually quite a simple idea, so I hope my post isn't too complicated! I think this feature would certainly improve FlipaClips already excellent standing as the ONLY traditional animation app for Android.

Jona (Co-Founder) 3 months ago
Hey thanks for the idea. It's really valuable to us these kind of ideas. I completely understand what you are saying. Essentially you want to be able to bookmark a set of frames and be able to easily flip between them. I have written this on our notes to further explore this idea. Thanks!

Copy entire frame or all layers to next frame

Anonymous 2 years ago • updated by Jona (Co-Founder) 2 years ago 1
So, far the only way to copy an entire frame including all the layers is by going into the frame viewer and copying and pasting.
It would be nice and much quicker to be able to copy and paste all layers at once from the main work screen. Ideas would be to either press and hold copy button to pull up options of the layers desired to be copied... Or press and hold on frame from bottom frame scroll and add option to the add entire frame to the list of delete, and add before and after pull up window.
Thanks.

How about a more advanced color palette like dark greys?
Answer

We have plans to add improved color palettes. We do realize our current color picker is very limited and the provided palette isn't great. Thanks for sharing your feedback!
