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.
Oops ... forgot to sign in before posting this one! :)
Perhaps I should expand on the Flip button idea; if, for instance, I had a key drawing on frame 12 and a key drawing on frame 14 and I was working on an inbetween drawing on frame 13, I could set the Flip button to play just those three frames (or a few more if required) and it would play and loop just those frames and always return to frame 13 when it was released, so I could draw - flip - draw - flip etc.  - keeping an eye on how the movement is progressing without losing momentum or concentration.

This is a feature that very closely mimics the way one animates traditionally with pen and paper, so one that would be great for FlipaClip.

Of course ... being left handed I'd like the possibility to have this button on the right, or even on a bluetooth keyboard!
