SVG Flipbook

Make flipbook-style layer animations with any SVG editor.

SVG Flipbook is a web app which runs next to your SVG editor and lets you animate your creation. Each layer in your SVG becomes one frame. You can use whatever SVG editor you like. Inkscape works great.

How to use the app

While you are editing the SVG, open the same file in the SVG Flipbook app. When you hit save in your SVG editor it will "live reload" in the app and you will see your changes playing.

Customise frames

You can customize frame timing and behaviour by editing your layer names:

Export to animated SVG
