Vector drawing program that lets you make your own digital comics. Pencil is based around traditional hand-drawn animation techniques. At the centre of the application is a timeline, which allows you to add four types of layers: bitmap image, vector image, sound, and camera. The animation works by setting keyframes one each layer and arranging the different layers on top of each other.
