I am still a real beginner with Pencil. I love it for all its flakiness and I would happily pay for a supported version of it! As I don’t think there is a real paid 2d animation alternative.
Frames can soon add up. It’s very tricky working across a 13" screen when you have 400 frames on one layer and having to go back to the beginning to add frames/start from the beginning with a sound layer which won’t seem to play for me mid-animation. I am finding working across hundreds of frames really tricky, just the physical handling of it. I am sure I am doing something really wrong and there must be a way round it. Please explain if there is.
