Animate on an iPad

I would find an iPad version of Animate useful.

I'm drawing on my iPad using Fresco, then exporting the PSD to Animate on my iMac for the animation.
I can onion-skin my drawing in Fresco, to get an idea of the movement but is there a way to get an instant replay of my animation as I go?

I'm using a simple program called FlippaClip which does just that, but I'd prefer to be working in an Adobe program, so that it links with Creative Cloud and is fully compatible with Animate and Premiere Pro.

The Adobe Animate team is drowning in bugs and optimization issues for the current version of Animate, and you're asking for an entirely new product? I can't imagine where you think the engineering resources for that would come from. Especially for something of such marginal utility.

This is more of a weak argument than a "reality check". Adobe absolutely has the power to make an Animate ios app a reality. It's illogical to suggest otherwise. Why do you have excuses for Adobe? I sincerely don't understand why anyone professional or otherwise would give examples like bugs or optimization issues as excuses. You may not own or use an iPad Pro but those of us who do would really benefit from the ability to work on our projects on our iPad. I'm 100% certain that we will see an Animate App sooner than later, your comment just blew me away. Excelsior.

Loving your iPad is one thing.

Dev reality - another.

Your optimism is based on just wishful thinking.

The traceable history of Animate in the last 6-7 years plots a very clear graph.

They release hotfixes of hotfixes full of bugs and regressions showing lack of any decent QA.

One has to be completely delusional to believe that such a project is well-funded, well-staffed and well-maintained, with bright prospects for the future.

Thanks for the reality check Clay 🙂
It would only be a case of adding a timeline to Fresco . . .

As a work-around, I've opted for Clip Studio Paint EX (the version that includes an animation option) on my iPad Pro, which features a timeline. I can save my artwork as a PSD and animations as MP4s, so I'm hoping that will prove compatible with Photoshop, Animate and Character Animator.
But I look foward to a Creative Cloud drawing app with a timeline (even if ClayUUID considers this a 'marginal utility'!)
