  • This is so much more useful than only a “storyboarding” tool. It could be used to integrate 2D Animations in 3D Blender sceneries. Only this “little feature” could open up new possibilities for the Blender community. This should be supported as a main tool and it is worth a own Blender movie made by this tool.

    (You may have noticed, that I’m very enthusiast about it!!!)

  • Tzetzi

    is the animation also made in blender?

    • cgmeetup
