Now Playing Tracks

Trying out Autodesk Sketchbook 7’s Flipbook feature. I like it, although it definitely needs to add all the layer features the regular program has. I paid $40 to upgrade from 6, and it still sort of feels like trial software.

You’re given 3 layers and a background color choice to play around with, and the only thing you can do with them is toggle visibility. No reordering, no locking pixel opacity, no locking whatsoever. Oh, and one of the layers, the background layer, cannot be keyframed.

The base program is great, but the new Flipbook feature has me scratching my head. If you’re into animating, and the above information doesn’t bother you, go ahead and buy it. The base program is worth the $60 on it’s own, I wouldn’t buy it exclusively for Flipbook.
