They added animation to sketchbook so expect me to make little 10 frame animations.

They also finally added features that I have been wishing for since I first started using sketchbook pro. Many of them are features that Sai has had for a while, so now Sketchbook Pro is the ultimate drawing tool. Unfortunately they also adopted that stupid annual fee subscription based crap that other companies are doing now. Luckily it's only 20 bucks a year. The Mac version is broken out of the box for some reason so I haven't been able to play with it but they acknowledged it's broken and are fixing it right away. Not sure why they let you download a broken version but whatever.

If you have a Mac you should be using Sketchbook. It's free to download and free to use the basic pro tools from Sketchbook pro 6 when you setup a free account and 20 bucks a year for the new pro tools which include animation and layer grouping and symmetry controls.

Can't wait to see what people do with the animation feature.

By the way, I've just visited the Autodesk site, and I couldn't find anything about the annual subscription. I only see the regular ("perpetual") license for $65.

it's built into sketchbook 7. you can only get the free version and then when you open it it offers the pro version for a yearly fee.

The animation features sound like fun, but the layer grouping seems to be a much more valuable addition!

Oh there are so many other useful tools they added. I'm very pleased with this release.

Thanks for the recommendation! I tried the demo of the previous Sketchbook version, but I wasn't impressed. However, with the addition of the animation features it may be worth buying!

What's neat is that you get old version just for signing up for free and the new tools are just $25 US a year. I believe it's 2.99 a month if you don't want to pay for an entire year.

Unfortutately, it seems that I won't be able to use the new Sketchbook version. It only works with Windows 7/8, and I'm still using Windows XP on my drawing/working computer.
(As for my Mac, I've decided to use it as a dedicated music workstation, so it's currenly installed within my synth rack and it doesn't have a tablet connected.)

That sucks. You should really get a copy some day. I'm still playing with the animation thingy on it but I'm not that good at doing sequential art and conveying motion.

Well, maybe when I upgrade my computer, I'll give it a try.

However, I actually don't plan upgrading in the near future. My current computer was assembled seven years ago, but it still works fine with all the software I need for my work, and SAI runs smoothly on it too. (I heard that SAI often crashes under the newer versions of Windows.)

Theoretically, I could hook a tablet up to my Mac to try it, but it's not very convenient to draw when the display is installed like this :) playcolt.ru/photos4/zez_1406_0…
