Fluidtoon is an easy to use animation program for Windows.

Preview 5, rotoscoping, reference images, etc. I also realized just how much work it would take to turn this into a "proper" application, so the next update may be quite some time away..

Preview 4, "the blue edition". Added alpha composition to the brushes, which in practise means that there's some antialiasing going on. Also broke the undo and there's bound to be some oddities introduced as well. The wacom bugs are still there, and so on.

This version is quite slow due to the way the brush is calculated. I'll look into that at some point.

Also drew some simple application and document icons.

Preview 3 with preliminary (= hackish) wacom support.

Rewrote the whole program in MFC after realizing that implementing wacom support under wxwidgets might be somewhat difficult. Some bits may still be a bit flaky, but the ft_prev2 version should have all the features from ft_prev1, plus these additional features:
  • Mouse wheel adjusts brush size
  • Enter key goes to the next frame just like space does, except that it clones the current frame.
Some of the grayed out items also give a glimpse at what I'm planning to implement in the future.

First preview written using wxwidgets.


Fluidtoon started out as a more or less direct clone of easytoon, with a goal to optimize the workflow.

Additional planned features include wacom tablet pressure support, reference images and rotoscoping support.

The program is still much under construction (and the design nor the feature set is not set to stone at the moment).
