Creating FlipBooks | Sketchbook Products | Autodesk Knowledge NetworkDiscover the verdict! We review what the latest iteration, SketchBook Pro , has to offer. At first glance, SketchBook Pro offers a sleek, tidy interface, with a pleasant emphasis on icons and visual cues rather than text menus. Its outward simplicity belies an impressive selection of over customizable pens, brushes, and tools; this new version ushers in a raft of additions and upgrades, such as more blending modes and gradients, improved selection and crop tools, and more color wheel functions. The new FlipBook tool allows users to create their own frame-by-frame animations, with onion-skinning Autodesk. If, like me, you havent used SketchBook Pro before, you might need some time to adjust to its peculiarities the big round thing is the 'Lagoon' and the little round things are 'pucks'. Some aspects of the navigation arent to my taste, such as having to hold down and drag on icons when clicking would be much quicker, and its unclear why the pucks are necessary other than for their looks.

SketchBook Pro 7's animation Flipbook feature can be considered a bit of an experiment from the program's developers. It's best to see the tool as a work-in-progress project, because while the brush tools and user-friendly functions are impressive, this new feature is still limited. But it's worth spending a little time investigating.

For this month's article I'll guide you through the animation side of SketchBook Pro, reveal how to animate with the Flipbook, and explain how to handle the new layers system. Select File from the main toolbar and choose New Flipbook. The project panel will appear with a range of properties to choose from.
