FREE animation programs? Apr. 10th, 2012 @ 08:05 PM Reply

Well, I want to make animation. I can already make a little, but it sucks compared to what I might be able to do if I had something as good as flash- yet it's expensive for me. -_-

So, do you guys know of any decent animating programs that are free, or have trials with all the tools?

well, you can always make frame by frame animations in paper and put them together in any editing software, but thats just bleeeeeh. Ive hear about a software called "Pencil" and looks a little bit like flash, heres the link http://www.pencil-animation.org/ , maybe give it a try, its free, i havent tried it tho.

Free animation programs are a bad idea, the only worth anyone's time that is free, is pivot, otherwise, no dice


I spend most of my days watching madness combat and tributes, i (try to) write possitive review on animations, but i don't put bad comment, I make humor out of it and move on
