    Path and shape tools to create guides
    Easy frame management

Thanks so much!  Glad to hear it.  Please let me know if you find any issues.  I want this program to be rock solid.

is there a way to make your own fps because I usually animate at 17 fps but the ones closest to it is 15 and 20, is there a way to make it 17?

Good question.  I originally made this program for my students with the goal of it being as simple to use as possible.  I also intentionally capped the lowest frame rate at 12 to keep them from creating animations that were too choppy.  I can look into making the frame rate chooser a slider instead of a dropdown.

Please let me know if you find any other issues with the program.

Oh ok other than the frame rate counter the software is pretty solid, I love the fact that you can add sound and there is no lag when you play back the footage, really nice job man.
