Plastic Animation Studio

Plastic Animation Studio

Digital Video S.p.A.

Plastic Animation Studio lets you easily animate photos or drawings and share your animation with your friends.

Plastic uses an innovative and powerful technology that allows you to create a complete animation with just a single drawing.
An edit image page is available if you need to modify the image and isolate the subject you want to animate.
Animation is controlled by skeleton structures that allow you to make stretching and bending deformations with no need for drawing each pose.
You can also modify the Stacking Order of skeleton nodes to fine tune overlapping sections: at any time you choose whether a part of the subject is in front or behind, giving much more freedom to your animation.

An extensive collection of images and some example animations are included in the App.

Plastic really brings your images to life!
Unleash the artist inside you and challenge your friends by sharing your animations!

Features List:

- Load images from the Plastic Library, Photo Library and iPad Camera.
