Here Are A Few Of The Best Reasons To Use FlipPad!

A Better Timeline With Thumbnail Images For More Ease Of Use

FlipPad’s timeline is a traditional xsheet. But our sheet comes with thumbnail images to make it even easier to see what’s going on in the scene. Other apps with this feature cost 10 times more. The xsheet is vertical because that’s the way the pros, studios and schools all want it. So every row is a frame and every column is a layer. Images are automatically held until you replace them with another image or stop the hold.

More Powerful Onion Skin For Total Flexibility 

FlipPad’s Lightbox (onion skin) is more powerful and more versatile than any other onion skin feature onion skin we’ve ever seen and it’s the easiest because it works just like a traditional animation disc. Every image you open goes on top of the Lightbox and the one at the bottom falls off. If you want to animate “straight ahead” just open the next image and it goes on top of the one before. If you want to do inbetweens just tap on the image before and the image after before the one you want to draw on. You can even open images in other layers to make sure you can see everything you want to help you know exactly where to draw. 

Improved Drawing With Smoother Lines

When you zoom in on the lines it becomes painfully obvious how much better the line quality is in FlipPad. Better anti-aliasing in FlipPad makes the lines look smoother and the fact that we store the lines in their own layer above the paint makes them composite better onto the paint and the background. FlipPad also edits the lines with separate tools so you can erase the lines without touching the paint.

Unique Painting Features For Faster & Easier Painting

FlipPad stores the paint in its own layer below the ink lines for better compositing and for more powerful painting tools. FlipPad lets you drag the. paint bucket like a brush to paint adjacent areas with a single swipe. It also lets you paint. all the enclosed areas in the whole frame with a single click and hold. And to go even further you can paint every enclosed area in the entire layer with a single. command.  And of course you can erase the paint with a single click and without touching the lines. No. other app gives you this level of speed, ease of use and control.
