    Animator?

    I have been looking for free or cheap animator programs. I would love to draw and produce short anims. Does anyone know a good program?

    What type of program do you have at the moment ?
    You might be able to use what you have.

    Are you on Mac or PC ?

    I have CamStudio but I've never used it. I think I got it at www.download.com

    Hi Robert,

    Thank you. I looked in google and it seems that "Camstudio" is a screen recorder program. I am looking for a software in which graphic and cartoon animations can be created.
    Thanks :wink:

    Hi Netti,

    I think Anime Studio (Pro) is just what you are looking for:

    http://www.e-frontier.com/article/ar...1/794?sbss=794

    The Pro version costs $199. You can download a demo version there. If you like the software and if you are interested in buying it - I want to sell my licence (just send me private message, if you are interested) I like the program very much but I just want to concentrate on 3D animation at the moment and donīt need this 2D animation program anymore. The license is tranferable without problems - I emailed the e-frontier support and they told me itīs no problem if I sell my copy.

    Hi Marco!

    Long time no see!

    Thank you so much. I will download the trial version and see how I like it. It is a bit too pricey for me, but let's see.
    Thanks again

    Hi again,

    there is also a "standard" version for $49 - maybe this is okay for you? Maybe you donīt need the features of the pro version...

    But just donīt think that animation is something easy - especially character animation. You have to learn a lot of rules about animation itself and you have to learn how to use an animation program which is much more complicated than a "simple" painting program like artrage. I just wanted to mention that. If you are looking for a good book on animation I can only recommend the "bible" for animators: The animatorīs survival kit

    http://www.amazon.com/Animators-Surv...2218525&sr=8-1

    A great book!

    take care,
    marco

    You might try looking at this software. It is supposed to be a traditional type animation program. they have a free version and some pay versions.

    It seems I can't post URLs, so do a search on google for Plastic Animation Paper
