Key Features


Transform 2D layers into solid objects with comprehensive physics properties

7 object types + 7 joint types for rigging precise and complex simulations

Simulate advanced scenes with built-in support for buoyancy, magnetism, triggered animations, teleportation, and more.

Compatible with masks, text, and shape layers for versatile application

Browse and preview over multiple sample projects to get started

Samples Browser new!

The Samples Browser provides a gateway to test scenes showcasing Newton's incredible features.


Unlock the full potential of Newton4 with the Samples Browser, offering a curated selection of demo scenes.

These ready-to-use templates are perfect for learning advanced techniques or jumpstarting your project with pre-configured effects.

Joints

Connect your layers using joints.
Newton4 simplifies the process, making it straightforward.
There are various joint types like Distance, Pivot, Piston, Spring, Wheel, Blob and Weld new!
, each serving a specific purpose.
Use these joints to connect two or more layers, or get creative by combining different joint types for advanced setups and simulations



Weld Joint new! : Bonds two bodies together with an option for controlled flexibility, acting on relative rotation.

Distance Joint: Maintains a fixed distance between two points on different layers, adjustable for elasticity.

Piston Joint: Enables relative translation along a specified axis, restricting rotation. Motor-driven for controlled motion.

Pivot Joint: Forces two bodies to share a common anchor point, regulating relative rotation within a defined range.

Spring Joint: Constrains two layers as if connected by a spring, influencing their movement.

Wheel Joint: Combines features of piston and pivot joints, suitable for attaching wheels to vehicles. Includes suspension and a motor.

Blob Joint: Enforces a constant volume (or area in 2D) within a group of layers, utilizing internal soft distance joints.

Animate

The Keyframes panel lets you animate physical properties in a playful way.


Animate with Precision: Control nearly any physical property for dynamic effects, from gravity-driven movements to intricate collisions.

Interpolation Styles: Choose from five unique keyframe interpolation styles to craft the exact motion you envision.

Looping Animations new! : Keep your animations flowing with new looping capabilities for continuous action.

Graph Preview: Utilize the graph preview for meticulous adjustments, ensuring your animations move exactly as planned.

Waterlike new!

Make your objects float and groove!


Unlock new dimensions in animation with the Waterlike feature, simulating the effect of objects interacting with a liquid medium.

Use it to create drag effects, where objects slow down as if moving through water, or to craft invisible, interactive barriers that objects can detect and respond to.

Triggers new!

Elevate your animations to the next level with the power of Triggermatic.


Enhance your animations with 'Triggermatic'—a dynamic feature where objects activate animations upon collision.

Any object can serve as a trigger, even the animated object itself, offering creative ways to start motion sequences.

Plus, with versatile looping options like cycle, pingpong, offset, and continue, you can maintain the animation's flow seamlessly.

Teleportation new!

Where magic meets physics!


Create captivating animations with teleportation effects where objects pass through portals and emerge at designated points.

With the ability to transform any element into a portal and the option to loop through composition boundaries, you can craft animations that playfully bend spatial rules.

Comp Walls new!

Easily turn composition boundaries into static walls or teleportation portals within a click.


Turn the edges of your composition into interactive boundaries that act as static walls or teleportation portals.

Customize their behavior and destinations to add a layer of excitement and creativity to your projects.

Grenade new!

Get ready to shake up your animations.


Introduce explosive dynamics to your projects with the new grenade feature! Easily craft detonations that send objects flying, with full control over timing and intensity for diverse effects.
Preview the impact zone directly, ensuring precise and dramatic results.

Experience even more possibilities with Newton



Null Layer Support new! : Integrate invisible control layers for complex animations.

Property Highlighting new! : Quickly identify changes with visually marked property adjustments.

Auto-Save new! : Secure your work with the new auto-save feature, ensuring you never lose progress.

Randomizer: Introduce variability with controlled randomness for more natural simulations.

Export Contacts: Automatically transform interactions into keyframes for precise event synchronization.

Scene Snapshots: Compare different scenes instantly without reloading setups.

Actions History: Navigate your creative process with an intuitive undo/redo system.
