Get your imagination going… take a few deep breaths… close your eyes… – wait, don’t do that. 🙂 Read on…
Enjoy drawing the rough blue lines over layers of red layouts, do keys and breakdowns, turn on your real time light table, quickly move drawings around, refine your x-sheet timing to perfection, clean up in black ink zoomed in and rotated – and get the most beautiful hand drawn lines and expressive animation you can ever do. Feel your computer and tablet pen become a true extension of your creative self. Experience the freedom of animating without constraints.
That’s how we imagine using the basic features of Animation Paper. It is going to be awesome!
Quickly sketch out ideas – working rough
As a 2D animator creating hand drawn animation like this, you’ll appreciate your characters (or what ever it is you are doing) come to life with a fantastic result in its own right. However, this application will also be the ideal part of a full production pipeline for doing complete motion pictures, games or so much more. Even Maya-, Max- or other 3D-animators, live action film makers, visual effects artists, stop motion animators, storyboarders and artists of all techniques and trades will benefit tremendously from being able to quickly rough out ideas and plan in Animation Paper before going back working in their own medium of choice.
This tool will be build from the ground up as a native OS X Mac app. After that, plans are to do Animation Paper for Windows and a portable version for iPad too. [2016 PLANS ARE TO DO BOTH PC AND MAC VERSIONS SIMULTANEOUSLY]
