Editor's review
This simple freeware allows you to create animated drawings using bitmap and vector graphics. Pencil does not require installation, just run the executable file and you are ready to take advantage of all features provided.

You can open a new document and start drawing from scratch or you can edit and animate an existing BMP picture. Either way, your project will include two image layers (vector and bitmap) by default, but you can add new sound and camera layers and combine them as you want.

The integrated (resizable) time line allows you to edit the content of each layer by inserting several key frames to create an animation. Both frames and layers can be moved and rearranged to obtain the perfect result and you can also adjust the frames size.

The application offers you several standard drawing tools such as pen, pencil, coloring and polyline tools, eraser and color picker and allows you to configure parameters like color, size and feather.

Your animation can be exported as SWF movie, image sequence or X-Sheet.
  • supports layers
  • can create freehand animated sketches
Bottom line:
You can use Pencil as a simple drawing software or to create and edit animation frames from your sketches.
