Just about anyone who's doing 2D animation uses FlipBook 2D animation
I've been shopping animation packages and preparing to make a purchase.
Flipbook seems far and away the best solution. Unfortunately I'm working
entirely in a Mac environment. Is there any chance that the Mac Version is
coming out any time soon? I'd hate to buy "Toon Boom" and then see the Mac
version of Flipbook released two months later. Any help?
Thanks, Barrett Glenn
I am hopeless amateur in the field of animation. Basically I wanted a tool
to make animations professionally (web designs, the like) and for the more
fun part, I wanted to try to make a small 2D cartoon together with my
daughter (she's 8).
So after surfing the web for a while, I actually ended up evaluating two
tools: Plastic Animation Paper (PAP) and FlipBook. Although I liked PAP, I
was looking more for a tool that could assist me in all production phases
(from sketch book to finished DVD in my case). I thought FB was perfect for
that and affordable at the same time.
I have really enjoyed using DigiCel FlipBook, at first I didn't think there
was enough reference material to get started but its ease of use proved me
When I was in college in the late 80ís I studied
animation in a small school. There was no animation department, so I had to
do it through independent study. Back then, if you wanted to do a pencil
test you had to blow a whole roll of super 8 film (even if it was just a for
few seconds of film), wait for processing, and then project it. It was a
pain, and it was very expensive. Because of the cumbersome nature of the
process I was not able to truly learn animation well and abandoned the
Since then I have been an illustrator, a teacher, and a pastor, only
dreaming of being able to animate. Now, with Flipbook, I am able to animate
and see my results instantly. After 13 years Iím living a dream (I know
that sounds awfully melodramatic, but itís true) and watching my drawings
move moments after theyíve been drawn. Not only that, but my 11 year old
son has shown interest in animation and he is able to learn the process in a
way I was never able to at his age.
As a teacher and an artist I use cartoons and visual aids extensively in my
teaching process. By using Flipbook I hope to be able to incorporate
animation into my repertoire of teaching tools. Thanks for opening up these
new windows of opportunity.
It really is a "nifty" program!
For my two cents...I
really love DigiCel for testing. I have the stripped down version and it
does everything I need. I test with a real crappy USB Web cam and if I need
to finish something in video I just scan. The advantage to DigiCel is that
it is ready to roll and can get fancier as you need it.
I really am enjoying my FlipBook Lite. It is very easy to use and my
animation productivity has gone through the roof! I am considering upgrading
to SE, What would an upgrade cost me?
Thank you very much!
