What is Animation Desk?
Animation Desk is an ideal application for learning and making 2D animations. It works like a digital flipbook but with more flexibility and accessibility for students and teachers.
Animation Desk has a wide range of animating tools. Users can find beautiful brushes, onion skinning for motion tracking, sound effect editors, layer panels, and frame rate settings in the app.
Students can start with a blank project, a video, a photo, or an animation project. After students complete their animation, they can save the animations as videos, GIFs, PDFs, or an editable animation project.
Teachers can find free handbooks on Animation Desk product website.
