Madefire Motion Book Tool offers digital comic creators new vistas

Madefire Motion Book Tool


With abject apologies to my old friend, artist Liam Sharp who is integral part of the project team (it’s been a busy old month), the launch of the Madefire Motion Book Tool to create digital comics with added animation and sound completely passed me by last month. My abject apologies!

The Madefire Motion Book Tool is now completely open for access to anyone with a creative spark and web connection, enabling you to upload your work to the Madefire cloud and build from anywhere without downloading gigs of software. Upload static PDF’s or get nasty with some Motion Book madness and add sound, motion and depth to your story.

Directly dialed into the deviantART community, you can now publish your comic as-is, or bring it to life on Madefire’s cloud-based platform — adding elements of atmosphere and depth to your visual narrative.

“It’s really exciting to see all the amazing things that people are creating with the Madefire tool,” says Liam. “Animations, parallax images, simple comics, manga, books… so many new and unique uses!”

For the simplistic – if you already have a comic or graphic novel done – using the Motion Book Tool has never been easier. Simply upload the PDF’s to the cloud, drag them into a project and publish. Your comic will be up on the web within minutes — ready to be shared with the world.

For the ones who want to take it a step further – break away from the static page and upload your assets in layers and get started thinking outside the box. Customize a soundtrack, add sound effects, play with focal points, add smoke/fire, pan in, zoom out, pace out your narrative — want to sit inside the book? Create a full 360 Pano. There are no boundaries. You the creator control the pace of the elements… the reader controls the pace of the story.

• Go to and sign up for free cloud-based access to the tool. There are two videos on YouTube outlining how to us the tool here (Introducing the Motion Book Tool) and here (Create and distribute your comic with the Motion Book Tool)
