Friday, February 15, 2019 TupiTube Desk Portable, Open 2D Magic!
"Tupi is intuitive and functional, either appropriate for animation beginners as for advanced artists. Also, its capacity to interact with other free software projects (Gimp, Inkscape, Krita, etc) extends its features." —Gustavo Deveze (a user), Argentina (2016)
"I love Tupi because it's such an easy and fun way to make animations to liven up my videos, it's a really powerful program with an amazingly friendly feel." —Calvin Rawl (a user), England (2016)
"Tupi is an easy-to-use software but don't get me wrong, its usability level increases the power and quality of your works if you want to create animated shorts. I think it could be used for feature films too using different animation techniques. Its render implementation is very fast compared with other applications. You can illustrate directly on it or just export your sketches to third-part tools. My conclusion: Tupi is a software with a lot of potential." —Jorge Andrade (a user), Venezuela (2016)
TupĂ­ is a design and authoring tool for 2D Animation for 8-100 years old kids :)
