Animation Desk for iPad



Some of you might know that I've been looking for a decent animation app for ages now, and I'm hoping that this might just fit the bill.

This seems interesting but it still suffers from the fundamental problem of having to use your finger or a very thick stylus as your input device. It's hard to know if there's anything more to this app than what's shown but it certainly has potential! I hope it offers layers and it seems like there's a nice selection of drawing tools.

I'm still waiting for Inchworm on the Nintendo DSi though. THAT should be fantastic!

No layers..... big no no for doing animations with BG and characters.

I just wish they would make flash for ipad.... not flash viewer, the actual content creation app :)

I have the same problem with the finger as a fat stylus.

Maybe we need to rethink the interface - what about an offset pointer (autodesk already has this part) that doesn't draw unless you have a second finger down (or maybe the reverse - another finger for pointing without drawing).

Honestly, despite Job's insistence that "the future is the finger" with regards to navigating tablet computers, anyone who's even remotely serious about creating art on the iPad NEEDS a stylus.

I grabbed a Boxwave for $15 bucks on Amazon, and it's a game changer. There's really no sensible alternative, if you're interested in drawing or painting on the device.

Here's a few things I did w/ stylus and "Artrage Mobile".

To everyone who likes stylus, have you seen this one? (pressure sensitive)

It looks awesome, but its a shame it requires a jailbroken device because it requires some low level function that Apple won't allow devs to use.. but who here isn't jailbroken? :)
