I'm using a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 with basic Bluetooth keyboard. I'll list a few shortcuts that I think would be useful.


Step Forward and Step Back using the left and right arrow keys.

Selext Next or Previous Layer using the up and down arrow keys (pehaps linked to an on-screen indication of which layer is currently active).

Play/Stop using the spacebar.

Loop On/Off

Flip (play a user defined frame range and continue looping whilst the key is pressed, return to the active frame when the key is released).


These are the most important ones, I think, related to Flipaclip's current functions.

Palm rejection is still a useful feature as gesture controls such as zooming can often still be triggered unintentionally - which can be frustrating when drawing. I have not noticed this being too much of a problem in Flipaclip - compared to other drawing apps, however.

Hi. I hope the original poster doesn't mind me butting in, but as far as pressure sensitivity in other apps goes, I have to say that Autodesk Sketchbook is hard to beat. It is responsive and quick and you can easily draw the faintest of lines. You can build up a stronger line with repeated strokes or more pressure - just like the real thing. It is noticablty better and more natural feeling than all the other Android drawing apps and would certainly make a good benchmark.


Just wanted to add - the drawing and pressure sensitivity in Flipaclip on my Galaxy Note 10.1 is already pretty good.

A toggle-able overlay sounds like the perfect solution. Would be great if the transparency could be adjustable. I've sent you some grids that I use.

That's great. If you are able to exploit the sPen button, perhaps you could offer a list of selectable options (as they do in Artflow). So, in the preferences dialogue, the user could choose which function they wanted the button to perform. For instance:

●Eraser Toggle
●Light Table (onion skin) On/Off
●Flip (loop a user definable set of frames)
Hi. I understand what you're saying, but in Artflow, the sPen button eraser toggle works as long as the stylus is close to the screen - it doesn't have to actually touch the screen. Is there some reason this behaviour cannot be replicated in FlipaClip?
Hi

I just wanted to add to this because I think switching from the current brush to the eraser and back is almost certainly one of the most frequently used functions, so it would be great if some sort of one-click toggle could be introduced.

I see that the Artflow Paint and Sketchbook app by Artflow Studio has managed to set the sPen button as an eraser toggle. So, rather than pressing and holding the sPen button to erase - instead, a single click of the sPen button toggles from the current brush to the eraser and then another single click toggles back to the current brush. The default (and rather useless!) Samsung defined behaviour is maintained.

This eraser toggle function would be an absolutely BRILLIANT addition to FlipaClip's tool set, if it were possible.

Edit: This behaviour could perhaps be duplicated with an on-screen eraser toggle button in the UI for those not using a Samsung with an sPen.



Yes, heading out from the active frame. :)
Hi

Thanks for replying.

When the Alpha Start slider is low and the Alpha End slider is high (as in your screenshots), then frame number 1 should be faint and frame nuber 5 should be solid. This is how the After frames are displaying, but as you can see - for the Before frames, the progressive faintness is the opposite of what it should be.

With the sliders set as they are in the screenshots, Before frame 1 should be faint and Before frame 5 should be solid.
