Who are we?
Madefire is an app, available for both iOS and Android phones, which gives you access to a whole world of Motion Books alongside hundreds of conventional print comics. Recently, in partnership with DeviantArt, we released the Motion Book Tool - a completely free resource. This allows anyone with a computer and an internet connection to create their own Motion Books, empowering creators to push the comic book medium in new directions.

Last Post Pre-Contest

Happy Monday!

Here we are, folks, on the eve of the start of the contest and we’re really thrilled at how everyone’s embraced this concept. Even before we officially begin we’d like to say a great big THANK YOU!

The first of our final judge announcements needs no real introduction as he’s a master of the medium in every single way (and was the sole judge for our last contest):

Liam Sharp (liamsharp)

Welcome aboard, Liam--we promise to go easy on you!

And we’re REALLY pleased to welcome aboard as our final judge DC Comics Digital Senior Editor Jim Chadwick. He’s a working professional and veteran of the American comic book industry (he’s edited everything from Justice League to Injustice and even thousands of pages of manga!) and brings an entirely unique perspective to everything. Thanks for joining us, Jim!

Sleep well, everyone—the contest begins TOMORROW!

Hi madefire studios, this motionbooks apps is really awesome, i've tried it used my unpublished comic and it become so awesome. can't wait to finish my project soon. Anyway, i want to ask about the publishing system, can i put my motionbook later to my own website or this motionbook only can be read in iOS and DA?

Can I use Motion Book to make a fan comic? (Of course it will be free to read as all fan fiction should be).
Or would I need special permission from the franchise owners that I would be making the fan fiction of with this tool?

I just want to confirm this now before I start using it because I could not find any information that clarifies this. 

Thanks! :)

and there she was built for others
communicating anxieties, and thoughts for production
pretty with their appearances at various presentations.

but among these the other views
many more to know, and that these expressions freely
in their homes built on medals and trophies.

and thus printed were also scanned
in this literature that the values ​​are made
one after another, many more to this manifestation.

how many more smiles never seen
that this production is recycled
where more tools now in what had been discussed ....

and so these memories were produced
creations in consumption on a new virtual cycle
someone else other groups are made and all these creations in the machine memory.

in longing still produce incessant attacks this perception
when building alone that these charges by someone other
which never existed for this comprehension.

the values ​​of the prisoners on the planet Earth.

Sorry if this is the wrong place to post questions, but would the Madefire Motion Book tool work for creating manga? :3
MadefireStudios Featured By Owner Edited 6 days ago  Professional Artist
Hey there! It's not the wrong place at all :). The Tool will work great for Manga - it allows you to create any order for the animations you enter onto the page, and we've done some in-house tests that looked awesome. The only issue we've got at the moment is that our page changing arrow is on the right - might be slightly unnatural to read left to right then click on the right. Give it a go - it shouldn't be too much of a problem at all! Make sure you send us the link afterwards!
