No problem – I understand everything you are saying. 🙂
As long as we are in alpha and beta stage (getting it tested), Animation Paper is completely free. When we finally have the finished version you can choose to buy it for $79 USD. That is several months into the future.
Again, you can download, install and use the current version as much as you want. No strings attached. Completely free. You can keep doing this for each of our released alpha and beta test versions. Until we have the final version up for purchase. And then it is only $79 as a one time fee – if you, at that point, wish to buy).
Thanks for your interest in Animation Paper! Happy Animating! Enjoy!
