Animation Creator HD lets you…well, guess!

Animation Creator HD for the iPad is a $1.99 app that lets you create your own hand drawn animations. It’s essentially a drawing app where you have different colors, brushes, move tool etc but on the bottom you have a time line where you can move between frames. You can add new frames or copy the last one (if you want to continue drawing using the same objects), move stuff around in each new frame, add new stuff etc. There are even layers so you can e.g draw an Angry Bird like I did above in one layer and then move only the content of that layer for each new frame, leaving the rest alone. You can also import images, backgrounds and even add audio.  It’s quite powerful for something that’s so cheap and so simple and easy to use, and it’s a lot of fun. You can of course export the result to YouTube when you’re done. This is the kind of app that you give to a 6 year old and 20 years later he’s working for Pixar.

  • Sounds fun. A try-before-you-buy scheme on the App store would be nice right about now. 2$ isn’t much, but with all the apps one wants to try…

    Also, your test video is definitive proof that cartoons are violent :)

  • Yes cartoon are violent!!! Just look at bugs bunny or Tom and Jerry!! ;-)
    It seems like a good app. It’s like those cartoons I used to make on old notebooks, but with more technology.

  • Does this give you an easy way to constantly flip back a and forth between drawings as you’re drawing? Does it allow you to save out an image sequence and export it to a computer?

    • It allows you to switch back one drawing at a time, or using a thumbnailed slider on the bottom where you can slide it back and forth as fast as you’d like. No easy way to export to a PC however, you’d have to use youtube’s download feature after uploading it there
