    Hello :)

    I want to make 2D animation but not focus so much on movement...
    Wanna make something like this:


    Basically using a bunch of drawings but not enough to make it look like the character is moving smoothly... Hope it makes sense!

    Anyway I thought about drawing first on procreate and then use a video editing app to put drawings and sounds together, but one downside to this is I can't do "onion skin" in procreate. (Using the previous scene background as a guide to draw new stuff on)

    It'd be also nice to have audio import capability while animating, and I could do that plus onion skin in Animation Desk, but their drawing function is not so advanced and I can't see the brush palette while zooming in.

    Another app Animation HD shows drawing tools in zoom, but no sound import :(

    Do you know of any app that is awesome at drawing and can do onion skin animation and sound editing?

    That would be what they call an Animatic. ;)

    Check out "Animation Desk" by Kdan. They have a free and premium version. Here is something I did in it awhile ago:


    You can set the frame rate, it does onion skinning, and it does sound.
