Hi Eli!

Did you succeed in submitting your activation key? If that’s out of the way, you can just go ahead and start drawing…

You don’t really need to setup anything. You draw, you add frames (hit the plus-icon or use the hotkey Ctrl ArrowDown if you are on PC or Cmd ArrowDown if you are on Mac). You draw some more.

You flip through your drawings using your arrow keys.

After you have done a rough animation quickly sketched out (default done in blue pencil) – then you add a new layer (hit N on your keyboard) – and you can start cleaning it up in black.

Hit Space to play your animation.

That’s the very short version. 🙂 Did that help at all? Otherwise let me know if you have specific problems or questions.

Also make sure to check out our tutorials – they will show you most of what you need to know to get started:

Good luck!
