Please make inhanements to the 2d drawing animation features. fps. things like that. I use photoshop for 2d animation and it would be great if you created more tools for people to wwant to use it as well. tools such as being able to rotate layers and create in betweens in the rotation. also being able to see a timeline of the time going by. Love you guys! thanks

You might want to read up on the animation and timeline features that already exist in Photoshop and Photoshop Extended.

I totally agree, more 2d hand-drawn animation features and add flash timeline features (with selectable frames and copy/paste/hold/extend frames) to photoshop extended at least...

I made a feature request video of a new animaton software, check it out:

please check it out and like & spread the word

Chris Cox : what's in photoshop cs6 extended right now is very basic, if you want to hold 1 drawn frame 6 frames, there is no way to do this execpt copy it and paste it to the other frame.. and if you want to update this frame , repeat the same process... takes time... instead of "making" the frame a "hold" key frame like in flash timeline..

I added a request / idea with more focus on 2d animation:

I actually just finished requesting a feature that would allow frames in the video timeline under "Altered Video" to behave as keys that you could move to happen later or sooner, add frames in between existing keys, copy and paste those keys, etc.

Altered Video is the only portion of the video layer that DOESN'T have keys and behave that way. Having that kind of functionality there instead of having to grab the entire frame and copy paste each one individually etc would make such a huge difference in the workflow. :)
