A new 2D Animation Software!

Animation Paper is a brand spankin' new 2D animation software that currently has an indiegogo campaign going on. The first release of the software will be for Mac with a Windows version to come later. It looks like a pretty sweet deal...
As stated on the indiegogo campaign page: "Enjoy drawing the rough blue lines over layers of red layouts, do keys and breakdowns, turn on your real time light table, quickly move drawings around, refine your x-sheet timing to perfection, clean up in smoothed black ink, zoomed in and rotated - and get the most beautiful hand drawn lines and expressive animation you can ever do. Feel your computer and tablet pen become a true extension of your creative self. Experience the freedom of animating without constraints. Animation Paper is going to be awesome!"

here’s the list of main features:
  • Super fast responsiveness – while drawing, while flipping, while everything
  • Quality lines – built on high speed, high resolution input from your tablet (like a Wacom)
  • Small to large format frames
  • Realtime smooth rotation and zooming of the view (and mirror) - controlled with gestures (pinch/rotate) or quick zoom function
  • Light table (onion skinning – advanced and customizable)
  • X-Sheet – easy, yet powerful timing and reuse (also scribbled notes and sound wave display)
  • Layers (each layer colored black, blue, red, green or custom)
  • Cutouts (easily reposition/rotate/scale drawings or parts of drawings)
  • Clean up (smoothed lines)
  • Paint (simple coloring with eyedropper and fill. May not be included in first release, but in free upgrade)
  • Many alternative ways of flipping (keys, wheel, springy return flip, etc)
  • Customizable Tool Bar and Quick Select (marking menu) for reaching favorite functions with a flick
  • Realtime full frame reference on 2nd monitor
  • Play scenes in sequence to check continuity
  • Import and export of video and frame-stacks (including alpha and X-Sheet timing data)
  • Native Mac OS X app (but also done natively for Windows, iPad and Android if stretch goals are reached)
