Recently launched by Inkboard is the new mobile app, Animatic targeted at iOS devices. The app allows users to generate their very own animated hand-drawing which is then able to be shared via social media and to friends through text messages.
The app allows users to create the animated GIF’s frame-by-frame and uses varied drawing utensils such as markers, crayons and pencils. Before adding a new frame, users are able to draw as much as they like. Options are also available to erase parts of the drawings. To help users draw, there is a shadow visible in the background of the previous frame.
A preview of the GIF can be played at any time whilst using Animatic. Users are also able to add in new frames at any time throughout their work. Additionally, the speed of the animation is able to be adjusted. They are then able to save the animation as a GIF or video to their device and once this is done, users can share it via email, another app or text message.
Darren Paul, the co-founder of Inkboard said in a recent statement “Most importantly, we wanted Animatic to enable anyone to easily animate their ideas. Animatic is the offspring of our product Inkboard, and powered by the Inkboard SDK. We can’t wait to see what people will create!”
Animatic by Inkboard is available for a free download from the iTunes App Store.
