The ability to animate drawings has been a unique and prominent feature of TwoToJazz since its very first version. And now with version 1.7 of TwoToJazz five different modes of Animation are available to you: Jiggle, Dance, Animate, Scramble, and Colorize. The amount and randomness of movement is minimal in the Jiggle mode, and increases in each subsequent mode until it reaches total randomness in the Scramble mode. In the Colorize mode objects are static and may only change colors. Each of these animation modes can be combined with Color or Gradient Variations. The combination of animation and color variation modes are configurable using a picker wheel in the Settings menu.
Color Animation itself is another unique feature of TwoToJazz introduced in version 1.3. This feature is made available when both "Mix Color" and "Advanced Edit and Animate Tools" are unlocked. To enable Color Variations for a drawing, in Settings menu choose "+ Color" option for "Animation Mode". Now, during animation (which is activated/deactivated by the Animation button) objects change colors as they move or stay put--depending on the the Animation Mode. If you have replicated objects in your drawing, each replica will have its own color variations.
Gradient Color Animation, introduced in version 1.5 of TwoToJazz, renders objects of your drawing with gradient color variations. To enable Gradient Variation for a given drawing, in Settings menu choose the "+ Gradient" for "Animation Mode". Now during animation, objects in your drawing will be rendered with random gradient color variations. These gradients are more noticeable on objects whose original colors are non-primary colors (the primary colors are Red, Green, Blue).
Note that Gradient Colors work only with objects that are "filled" with color by TwoToJazz. For example, the two-finger calligraphy brush or the free-style brush create objects are filled with color. In contrast, there are other brushes in TwoToJazz that draw only lines, that could be thin or think, but have no filled area. Line-based objects do change colors during color animation, but with no gradient effect.
You can animate even your photos or non-TwoToJazz drawings in TwoToJazz! Simply import one as a background image, cut around objects in that image using TwoToJazz's scissors tool, and then start animation. You can cut pieces from multiple images, after making each the background image, create a collage work from all those cut-out pieces, and then animate the collage. However, color or gradient variations do not work with cut-out pieces, they work only with objects or brush strokes you have made in TwoToJazz.
While in Animation Mode, you can save snapshots of you animated and color variated work into your camera roll by pressing the Save button.
