Add more layers

Anonymous 4 years ago • updated by Jona (Co-Founder & Lead Developer) 3 years ago 2
Can you add a couple more layers? It would be a TON easier if you did. Maybe 5 more I would recommend.
Answer

More layers have been added. We now provide 6 layers. In the near future we will look into adding more layers.

timecodes/ pasting a frame multiple times at once

trabitboy 4 years ago • updated by Jona (Co-Founder & Lead Developer) 4 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.
Answer
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 3 years ago • updated by Jona (Co-Founder & Lead Developer) 3 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

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 4 years ago • updated by IanJTurner 4 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
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.

Bookmarks/Key Frames

IanJTurner 4 years ago • updated by Jona (Co-Founder & Lead Developer) 1 year 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.

Answer
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!

This isn't really my problem, but my friend is an android user and she can't join the Christmas Contest. There is only one day left, and she is getting really doubtful. She really wants to join it, so I hope you can resolve this problem. Thank you.

I just downloaded the game and it asks for my age. So I put my age in but it won't let me get started. I can only switch ages. Is there a button to continue because I don't have it. DO i just put my age and get started or what. If you know the answer please tell. Thank you
