Brush Ninja Animated Gif Creator

Brush Ninja Interface

The Editor

The editor is divided into three sections.

Underneath the frame canvas is a control panel. From here you can change the animation settings, and play the animation.

Playing the animation is as simple as pressing the play button. When you do this all of the controls will fade out so that you can focus on watching the animation. To bring the controls back press the play button (which will have changed to a stop button).


There are a variety of tools in Brush Ninja that allow you to create fun animations. These can be selected on the menu at the top of the app.

The Timeline

The timeline shows the frames that make up your animation. Each frame will be displayed for a fraction of a second before showing the next frame. By default only one frame will be created. Click the big ‘add frame’ button to add more frames.

To change the selected frame in the editor click the frame you want to work on.

Under each frame in the timeline we have 2 buttons.

You can also drag and drop frames to change their order. This also works with the Add + button. The advantage of being able to move the add frame button is that you can add new blank frames wherever you like.

Note you must always have at least one frame in the timeline.

The Toolbar

At the top of the screen is a toolbar that gives you common actions to perform on your animations.

The Animation Controls

Under the animation canvas are some additional controls. The play button plays the animation, and there is a small section showing the number of the frame you are currently editing. There are also 2 buttons.


The settings allows you to control animation settings.
