Flipaclip was the software that got me into animating. One of the things that really made it attractive was its simple and practical use of touch screen controls to zoom, pan, rotate, etc. All the necessary controls were on the interface, such as undo and redo (though, that’s pretty much a necessity for touchscreen devices).
Fast forward to now, I got myself a convertible laptop that has stylus support. Sadly, the only animating software that had a similar touchscreen control scheme was Autodesk Sketchbook Pro, which was pretty pricey for a hobbyist.
Because of this, I was wondering if this software (Pencil2D) will have some sort of update that allows the use of touchscreen controls in the future.
It doesn’t have to be as fancy or clean as Sketchbook, but things like basic multi-finger zoom and pan controls, collapsible menus, and easy access to Undo and Redo are just the few things that will make this app a lot easier to use for those of us who want to take advantage of our convertable/tablet laptops.
Heck, if it is difficult to implement a multi-touch system, a virtual joystick on the screen would be more than enough for panning and zooming controls.
