    • Allow multiple people to edit a powtoon at the same time

      It would be great if two or more people could edit a powtoon at the same time from different computers (kinda like google drive).

      • Add support for animated Gif Files

        It would be great to be able to import or upload an animated transparent gif of a cartoon figure or other images into the project.

            Thanks for the request. We get tons of request, for such a large range of images and animations, we just can’t do everything, as much as we wish we could. If there are more votes, it would help the cause!

            • Add a tool that you can draw your own original characters with.

              As a beginning animator who doesn't have money for something like OnionSkin, adding a drawing tool to this interface, which I really enjoy, would be really beneficial.

              • More Diverse Emotions and Actions For Characters

                There should be a way to add different emotions to the actions for the characters. For example, if I select someone who's typing, the only option is them typing with a smile. There should be other options like typing while sad or angrily. I would also suggest adding more actions like lying down or running.

                • Justify alignment

                  I think it will be very nice to add justify alignment, so videos will look perfect and more professional.

                  • Give us the option to move an entire group of objects/characters/props instead of having to move them one by one. If I extend the length of

                    If I extend the length of one particular section of my PowToon from 2 seconds to three, currently I have to go in to each of my shapes/characters/props that are listed below the timeline and manually extend each one of them from two seconds to three seconds. It would be great to be able to select several of them at one time and have them ALL (or as many as I select) move to three seconds instead of having to do them all one at a time.

                        Cool Idea. At the moment, we are limited because all text in the same text box needs to be uniform colour , font etc. but we’ll see how we can change that!

                      • Try to add drop shadows or outer glow to text.

                        There are times when there is not enough separation between the text color and sections of the background; drop shadow or glow would help greatly!

                          • resize tween / animation

                            A really nice, subtle effect with images is when you can have them slowly grow and/or move on the screen. It is a trick to create movement with a static image. To either have a tweening for movement or size without having to build it in Flash would be nice. Something really simple where in addition to an entrance and exist animation, in between you can have a few simple options to transform the image in size, width or both.

                              We have so many completed videos, and having them in a list from newest to oldest makes it difficult to find a specific one. If we were able to group completed or in-process videos somehow, that would excellent! Search by title would help as well. Thanks!

                                          Animations repeat the same action at only one speed. Depending on how you set them in the timeline, they can complete the action or not. It would be useful if we could change how long the animation takes to complete its cicle, or if we could custom it to do an action faster than other.
