Here's some exciting news for animators with iPads.

Josh Anon is an artist at Pixar. He informs us of his new iPad app that lets anyone animate and has some really powerful tools for pros.

Here's the official press release for more info...


SAN FRANCISCO – May 10, 2012 – Anon Arts LLC, an iOS developer focused on creating great tools for artists of all skill levels, today released a new version of their animation app FlipBook, redesigned from the ground up for use specifically on the Apple iPad. The new app, entitled FlipBook HD, brings all of the simple, intuitive fun of FlipBook to a more powerful device, and adds a wealth of iPad-specific features for aspiring artists and animators to enjoy. FlipBook HD is available now on the App Store for $4.99.

“We’ve had over two million people give FlipBook a try, and they’ve shared many of their amazing movies on our website, http://www.flipbook.tv,” said Josh Anon, Founder of Anon Arts. “It’s truly exciting to realize that everything so far was just the beginning. It’s even easier to animate with FlipBook HD, and I can’t wait to see what incredible movies people create with their fingertips.”

FlipBook HD makes it easy for anyone to bring their drawings to life, even if their stick figures are pre-school quality. The program offers innovative and intuitive features that will appeal to aspiring and advanced animators alike, such as pressure-sensitive touchscreen drawing, multi-touch gestures, importing photos and videos, and multiple foreground and background tracks. The keyframe-based timeline makes it trivial to create scrolling backgrounds, walk cycles and other animation staples. When your animation is complete, email it to your friends or upload it to http://www.flipbook.tv to share with the world.
