Open-source software to generate hand-drawn 2D animations


Rate this App

Pencil is a multiplatform open-source tool that enables you to draw and animate 2D art.

Pencil can't compete with Flash, even though its animations are based in keyframes and different layers. Unlike Flash, when using Pencil you'll need to hand-draw each frame of your animation.

Pencil allows you to create four layers: bitmap layer, vector layer, sound layer, and video layer, all of which need their corresponding elements in order to produce an animation.

The version for Mac allows you to export your animation to video, something that the version for Windows is still lacking.
