by | Jul 2, 2015 | Creative

Hello animation enthusiasts! After the long wait, we are happy to finally confirm the launch of the latest iteration of our beloved Animation Desk: Animation Desk Cloud aka AD4. To celebrate its addition to the family, we are launching our first ever #AD4EVER GIF Contest. The objective? Simple. Create a 1-second GIF with Animation Desk Premium, and win Premium tools made available when AD4 comes out!


About the new Animation Desk 

The Animation Desk Cloud has opted for a more minimalist and clean interface for its newest iteration. This gives us the space and flexibility to implement the tools that allow even professionals to go without wanting.

This release may be the most significant one we’ve ever had. We’re offering this app to you completely FREE of charge. That’s right. To thank you for your continued support over the years, AD4 will be available to you at NO COST. There will be premium tools available for purchase, but as a beginner you can start learning the basics at your own pace with no obligation for purchase until you’re ready.
