Something is wrong with the select tool. When I try selecting an object while I’m drawing it selects a completely different object. What happened?

White background a bug?

-{VIII}-'s Review of Animation Drawing By Do Ink

Reviewed on 10/22/19 2:09 PM

I honestly don’t understand the recent update. Nearly every art and animation app start you off on a white canvas, and it feels completely natural to draw and animate on it, but for some reason it’s been treated as a bug here? The checkered grid is very distracting to me and it’s my least favorite part of the app. There is an option in the drawing properties to change the background color, but it doesn’t seem to change the background at all. That seems more like a bug to me. I hope it can be fixed soon. I was loving this app before the last update!

relatively easy to use and offers quite a bit for such a low price, but I want more!

This app is exactly what I am looking for. Layers. Vectors + Drawing. Frame by frame + Pathways I downloaded it and was having a ton of fun getting to know the app when it crashed so badly it won't even open. I tried everything and ultimately had to delete and re-install, losing all of my first time doodles.

Only good for animations with no sound

This is BY FAR the best animation app i have used, though there's one major problem- no audio. Even a simple recorder built into the app would sufice so that I could que the motions for the sound, but there's absolutely no way to do that... Add audio and this is undoubtedly a five star app! I would really love to make YouTube videos with this app and having paid money for this I am very disappointed that I can't do what I wanted to do with it. Please consider adding this feature as it is the only thing keeping me from recommending this app over AnimationCreator.

Love it

The app lags a lot, and won't let me export an animation I made, every time I try it just takes me out of the app. Please please PLEASE can you fix it?

Amazing but for Apple Pencil??

The calibration is pretty off nowadays for it, and I know it's not my Pencil! otherwise it's an amazing app. I've been thrilled to use it for the past three years. Great work. Can you work on layer transparency though? So you can set it to be a certain transparency in the animation itself.

Good

The animation app is really good and it has helped me make my own series but when I try to save a video, when ever I am waiting and the thing is loading, it crashes all the time. I have enough storage but I have more than 3000 frames but the animation only lasts for 7.5 minuets. I really want to save this animation but I don’t want to delete it or have to make a separate animation. Please make an update so we can save animations with more frames or can you tell me a way to fix this please without deleting the app and reinstalling it.

More versatile than it seems

purpleartist's Review of Animation Drawing By Do Ink

Overall I like using this software. As someone doing animation for fun, it gives me enough tools to get what ever I want done with out to much in the way as far as UI or a high price. But let’s talk about the different part of the app that you might be interested in: Drawing experience: doink uses vector based lines so it’s not going to give you the same drawing experience as something like procreate which is a raster based drawing program. You can use the gradient tool for a shading fill but without a lot of effort you can’t do a lot of blending or high detail work. It’s not built for it and will have a bad time. What it is good for is it’s line smoothing which helps keep line work more consistent from frame to frame. The vector lines also mean with closed shapes you rarely get any weird gaps and if you do they can be fixed. There are layers if you want to do more complex sketches (they are at the top of your drawing area). I wouldn’t call this a drawing app but it can work as one. This ok drawing part is made up for by this being the only app I’ve found that lets me pull in outside work to use for backgrounds. So if you really love painting your background, or you just want to animate a part of a character you can import things drawn elsewhere. Animation: Doink offers two ways of animating, the normal frame-by-frame I’ve seen in most iOS offerings and composition mode. As far as frame by frame the app is usable. The UI is a little fiddly with some functions like rearranging frames but it works. I haven’t had as many crashing issues with larger animations as I have with some other apps and you can change things like aspect ratios on the fly. Frame by frame animations are saved as ‘clips’ that can be used in composition mode or exported as is. Where animation in this app really shines is in composition mode. Composition mode lets you bring in photos or drawings from other apps and add animation to them. The best way I can explain this part of the app is the way Disney used a multi plane camera to make their animations like Snow White. The characters, background and fore ground can all appear in the same frame and be moved independently. This is awesome as it allows you to paint backgrounds or static characters in outside software and still use it in your animations. Want to add a static painted background to your characters talking to each Other? Import it and go. You can also import in pictures to your frame by frame to fit characters into scenes. There are great examples of both of these in some YouTube tutorials. This app does not offer audio syncing which would be nice but overall it’s one of my favorite options on the App Store. As a hobby animator this app lets me do things that save me a lot of time and gives me flexibility to use my own art or photos and give them more life. Tl;Dr this is an ok drawing app but offers two ways of animating, one that lets you pull outside images and animate over them which seems to be unique on the iPad. I would recommend this just for that function. As along as you’re willing to learn the software it can do some very interesting and unique things.
