The "Animation Paper" guy is at it again

Post by UsaMiKo » 21 Jul 2016, 03:43

Anyone remember an article over two years ago talking about a new program called Animation Paper? It promised a clean, and user-friendly interface and was, more or less, a revamp of an old program called Plastic Animation Paper. The creator of the program, Niels Krogh Mortensen, tried to start a crowfunding project for the program but, ultimately failed, making barely 19% of his goal. Now, after a year of anticipation, Mortensen has released a new website, promising to start a new Kickstarter in the Fall! You can see it here. http://animationpaper.com" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Here's the blog.

I know it might be weird to post so much about another software, but I always thought it was a shame that this program's developement went nowhere. I Iove to see creators and developers working towards giving other creators more options, so I thought it might be worth some attention. It might be a little too barebones for TVPaint users, but I think it might fit a niche for some people. Here's to seeing where it goes.

It's quite interesting, but it seems nothing has really changed, since the failed crowdfunding. So I don't understand why he tries it a second time.
At least the crowd-funding price seems to be a bit lower, but I don't know how many people are excited to buy a software, which will probably be available a few years later.

I really love what he was offering the first time, seems to me that the problem with the first kickstarter was more of an Advertising problem and because it was a niche software. More than the software being crap. I'm glad to ssee that he has'nt given up :)

He's going to have his work really cut out for him now that OpenToonz is attracting a following... I agree though that his design work looks very promising.

I wish him well on this , but there are already some nice "bare bones" (compared to TVPaint) animation programs for tablets (and for regular desktop/laptop computers) , like Digicel Flipbook and Rough Animator.
