FlipaClip: Cartoon animation
FlipaClip is a specialized application which allows you to create frame-by-frame animation with a wide range of professional cartoonist tools. You can use the app to create high-quality cartoons and take part in seasonal online competitions of artists.
FlipaClip app provides you with highly responsive drawing tools, such as brushes, scalable shapes, customizable text inserts with nearly any font you can imagine. You can also use different eraser shapes, selecting lasso, fill the bucket, and many more. You can choose several types of canvas, including colored options and different resolutions. The highest one is 1920x1920.
If you use a stylus-sensitive device like Samsung Note, iPhone or iPad Pro, then you can feel the power of the pressure degree. This feature allows you to draw lines of different thickness and form by changing the angle of the stylus and its pressure.
You are also allowed to edit your creations layer by layer. You can create up to 10 separate layers to add details and divide elements. FlipaClip also has a convenient animation timeline that allows you to create movement in 24p frame-rate. Next, you can dub the animated picture. There are 6 audio lines where you can place music, sound FX, soundscapes, and even record your own voice on the go.
By inserting pictures and videos, you can achieve unexpected effects. For example, you can take a picture or a video record of the ocean and draw a floating ship and animate in to fit in the video. The app supports PNG, so you can add objects with transparency.
FlipaClip UI design allows you to find all the necessary tools and options intuitively as they are all situated in the sidebar that is always visible. The black-and-white interface perfectly fits the purpose of this cartoon studio.
Ease of use
FlipaClip allows you to create up to 10 layers for separate editing of complicated elements. You should consider that slow devices may freeze from this number of visible elements. It’s important to use layers only if you really need it. The integrated sound FX library allows you to dub your videos much faster. You just have to type the keyword in the search section to find the corresponding effect.
