What is a .FLIPANIM file?

A .FLIPANIM file is a type of file that is used to save projects made in Poklik FlipAnim, which is a program you can use on the internet to make animations that look like flipbooks. Imagine you're drawing a little cartoon in the corner of a notebook and then flipping through the pages to make the cartoon move. That's what you can create with Poklik FlipAnim, but digitally.

Inside a .FLIPANIM file, you'll find all the drawings or pictures that come together to form your animation. It's like a container for all the pieces of your flipbook. Besides the drawings, this file also keeps track of how your animation behaves. For example, it remembers how fast the pages should flip, how see-through (transparent) each page should be, and how big or small (zoom) your drawings appear. This way, when you open your project again, everything looks and moves exactly how you left it.

The .FLIPANIM files are the newer version of what used to be saved as .FLP files. Even though the extension name changed, the way the file is saved didn't change much. This means if you were used to the old .FLP files, you wouldn't have much trouble getting used to the .FLIPANIM files.

To open a .FLIPANIM file, you need to use the Poklik FlipAnim program, which you can access on the web. This means you don't have to download or install any special software on your computer; you just need an internet connection and a web browser. Go to the Poklik FlipAnim website, and from there, you can either start a new flipbook project or open an existing one by loading your .FLIPANIM file. This makes it super easy to work on your animations from anywhere and on any device that can connect to the internet.
