got this yesterday...amazing bit of 2d animation software for the DSi, if you have a DSi it's a free download from the DSware store...

you get 2 layers to animate on
1 sound track and 3 fx/sample tracks..you can record via the mic btw.
once you turn on the advanced tools you can flip/mirror copy shrink zoom frames as well as hold a shoulder buton down to drag a layer and so animated it over time like a car crossing the screen, there's selections to cut out bits etc...
various brushes...
only 3 colors to play with though and export is animated gif or seq of gifs as well as sharing the actual flipnote file via wifi/net

doesn't appear to be a zoom in feature but for a freeby app it's great.

great to storyboard out a shot or just have a bit of fun with 2D..the thing i really like is the sound track...makes it such fun!:D


if you have a dsi...go get it...if you don't...GET a DSi!:)

touch screens are cool but just another thing to break . my original i-phone died within about 3 months " over excess with track & field " then dead pixels appeared .

well my orginal DS still works just dandy...that must be like 4years+...bought it when the DS came out..same day.

anyhow..couple of gifs from flipnote...the signing on one was made by me this morning...works better with my audio track..but gif's don't DO audio!
