Looking forward to a Linux version! Flipnote was so cool & I found it right before it was shut down- this is so great!
A downloadable tool for Windows
Clipnote studio is basic animation software and a spiritual successor to the now defunct Flipnote studio by Nintendo. Clipnote allows you to create basic animations that you can share with your friends.
Mac and Linux ports are in the works. For now you can use Wine to get it to run.
I cannot ensure that your tablet will work with the software.
- Square and circle brushes
- Line and shape tools
- Text tool
- 6 colors
- 3 layers for drawing
- Automatic note downloading/importing
- User profiles
If you'd like to help me develop Clipnote studio, you can buy a $5 Clipnote license which gives you access to custom themes and a fancy little supporter badge on the main menu. The license is just for people who want to donate to the project and get a little something out of it, none of the main features will be locked from you for not having the license. If you just want to donate to me directly, I have a Ko-fi page if that's more your thing.
You can use Paperclip, a utility created by Frog to export animations as .gif, .mp4, and .clip (Clipnotes file type for sharing)

pls an undo button T-T
hey, is there a way to have custom file names? like, when you save something, you can name it or something, or a distinct way to differentiate the files other than the date it was made. or like, a way to edit the file name in the details option when you go to check the image/animation
you can edit the folders name as you like
its super good imo an undo button would make it perfect
Add an undo button and this would be perfect :D
ahhhhh it works like a dreaaaaaaaam it works like a mfin dream
Are there any issues with owning it at the same time as clip studio? [they both use .clip as file type name]
nah, clipnote doesnt have any file associations, so its fine. file extensions are a myth lol
this is the best thing ever
will there be a mac port? if yes, when?
This is super cool!
This is an absolutely perfect program, i love it. I do however have issues with the sound function- i do use a .ogg file, but when i import it, nothing changes. Is this a common issue?
yeah, so currently theres no indication its actually been imported, but it has been, just add frames and it should be fine. this will be fixed, audio wasnt high priority for the old versions
The programm doesn't work when I try to open it?
do you have any more info on why it might not be working? or like system specs or something?
Do you plan on making Android version?
how do i make a server
are you gonna add zoom?
Is there a fill tool?
I really wanna use this to create some future animations because of how much i love the flipnote style! Sadly though it is pretty inefficient and clunky.. do you think you'll be able to add in some quality of life improvements to make things go a bit faster?
its going to be awhile if at all, give aesprite a try, its pretty easy to replicate flipnotes with it, you can even make custom brushes
Hey, nice work! this thing has got me really inspired in drawing stuff digitally. I have a single question tho
How the heck do I undo
is there a night mode or black background?
how do you undo? is undo a feature
Is there any way to zoom?
I really like this program, I am very grateful to you, really, I also hope that in the future there will be more colors and the ability to create more than three layers, I will try to buy a license in the near future, thank you,thank you very much
okay, i started like... 3-4 days ago i think? are you able to shrink and grow drawings?? and how do i make / join a server?
i dont think i added any shrink or grow functuons in the current version. also theres info about servers on our discord. there currently arent any online.
this is very pog
i cant draw
can someone please explain how to download my animation!
your animations are in your appdata folder. idk why people say download when the files are stored locally
This is awesome! Im looking for this app i brings me back when i play Flipnote in my Nintendo dsi thanks!
for some reason i do not know how to download my works?
will there be a mobile version ?
uh i have a problem, when i press left click, it doesn't put down any drawing. please help
how do you erase?
Just wow, subjectively the best animation Software I've ever seen! It gives me really good memories when I had my DSi. Really good Job, but I would love to be able to use Ctrl + Z for undo this and that. It would be awesome!
ctrl + z seems like a weird hotkey, i always use F15 ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Oh, I don't have the F15 key, because I use another keyboard layout, so as I was saying, it would be really helpful if you implement the CRTL + Z function, or just an option to set custom hotkeys!. I really love this software, but it's just a suggestion :D
I bought the license and applied it to my copy of Clipnote. Where do I get the custom themes?
Can you please put more colors, <3
how do i make a new frame?
it said it might put my pc at risk :(
thats just because windows is paranoid of anything that isnt widely used software. clipnotes risk free
having issues with my drawing tablet where when i put the pen down it doesnt always seem to start drawing a line. it can take a bit of movement before it suddenly kicks in. doesnt happen in other programs/when using my mouse. im using a huion tablet. this program is absolutely amazing besides that, keep up the great work!
