Motion Books: Beyond The Static Page

Motion Books push the boundaries of storytelling to the extreme, turning the act and art of reading into something that extends well beyond the printed page. Madefire's powerful and adaptable Motion Book Tool is now in your hands, allowing you to create expressive stories where audio and visual artistry collide.

Enter a creative world of art, animation, and sound, and watch stories and universes come to life in dynamic ways unlike ever before.
Imagination Without Limitation

The Motion Book is an adventurous, energy-packed medium that empowers creators to reach for worlds unseen. When you submit your Motion Books to deviantART and share them with the world, they'll be showcased alongside some of the comic industry's greatest creators and publishers, right alongside characters like Batman, Optimus Prime, Rainbow Dash, and Hellboy!

Envision your greatest adventures and make them unfold exactly how you've always imagined.
Creator-Centric: Start Simple or Go Elaborate

Professional-grade, yet flexible, the Madefire Motion Book Tool can be used to create the familiar page-by-page reading experience you know and love, while also being versatile and powerful enough to create the high-impact Motion Book environment being embraced by major companies such as DC, IDW, and Dark Horse Comics.

Creator-Centric: Start Simple or Go Elaborate

With the Motion Book Tool and its built-in distribution and reader-tool functions, you are the publisher of your own work. Sell your Motion Books on deviantART and expand your horizons, generating profit for your hard work while building your audience, bringing more readers into your creative space with no up-front costs.

You choose the distribution of your Motion Books:

For free:

in which case there is absolutely no charge for the use of the Tool or for the distribution of the Motion Book through deviantART or Madefire's mobile platforms.

For sale:

in which you elect to sell your Motion Books on deviantART and on Madefire's mobile platforms. You can set your own price and receive 60% of every sale. You can use the Motion Book Tool as much as you want with free access, but if and when you decide to start making money with your Motion Books, a reasonable fee goes back to the Tool maker and distributors. You only bear a cost when you make a profit.

Is there a way to delete content placed in the Bookshelf if we no longer wish to have it there?

How do you view this on a mobile platform?  I'm trying to read one of the books on a phone via the mobile DA site but nothing is happening.

Question: Looking over the Madefire Terms of Use, I noticed the (completely justified) prohibition of use that violates intellectual property rights. Does that disallow us from making fan comic Motion Books? (They would have to be free of charge either way...)

ESTARI is such a wonderful, cool comic. I hope to see a lot more of it on Madefire but until then you can see it updated weekly here:…

holy crap, this is awesome.

so if someone buys an MBook, what do they see in the deviation? Is it just a preview image or something?
LiamSharp Featured By Owner Aug 6, 2014  Professional Artist
Hi there! There's a whole section on dA where you can already see the books that have been published -…

The preview image is the equivalent of the cover, or the first page. :-)
