Program to make anime? Feb. 26th, 2013 @ 04:57 PM Reply

Hello. My first post :3 yay. Anyways...

I want to know a program that would be good to make anime. I'm aware I can't just jump right in and do stuff immediately and it will take time, but I want to get started. Open source would be preferable, but I'm aware most things aren't open source XD Thanks!

I suppose you could make anime cartoons with most animation programs. You can find some here. Flash is probably best, but it's quite expensive. You can download a free 30-days trial version first though (from the Adobe website).

For further advice, you might want to ask around in the Animation Forum or the Art Forum.

Quite expensive is an understatement XD Okay, thank you very much!

As far as I know, most professional anime are made in 3D programs like Maya, using their 2D capabilities for the most part and swapping to 3D when necessary.
