An Animation Revolution

I'll make something else now...

For the record I am indifferent to the software. I have no problem with people wanting to create animation with it for fun as long as those with loftier ambitions aren't letting their skills stagnate. I spent a lot of time with 3D movie maker as a kid because I didn't know how else I could create animation and I really wish I had discovered flash sooner. Brad Bird began his first animated film at 11 years old so you're never too young to start!

So please remember that my animated counterpart is a caricature in more ways than one; I didn't really jump on a horse when Skyrim was announced and I'm not about to go postal on someone who wants to use some gimmicky animation software, just consider the alternatives.

This animation speaks to me. I once had to us go animate for a school project once because it was required for it. Never had I felt so dirty.

"oh my freaking freaking freaking freaking freaking freaking freaking freaking god, harry you are grounded for 10 trillion years

"wah wah wah wah wah wah wah wah wah wah wah wah"

Fuck go animate lol, but seriously i think this was a great animation that shown both alot of promise but a true critique to what GoAnimate is and will always will be, crap!

I saw this video a few days before I discovered GoAnimate, and it told me "Don't use GoAnimate. Use Flash like you were going to do". So if I hadn't seen this video, I would be using GoAnimate by now! I love that you didn't HATE on GoAnimate, but just said that it's good for beginners, but you shouldn't make a living out of it. I am now a Flash animator. However, I use Plotagon because I'm not interested in real CGI animation. Also this is really funny.

This is pretty much the best explanation on why GoAnimate sucks. My friends were talking about GoAnimate a lot, and one of them was a rabid fanboy of it. So he searches this animation on YouTube with his smartphone to my other friend and he gets upset at the second he sees it. It's just hilarious because he takes GoAnimate seriously, and he obsesses through it. Although, his YouTube account doesn't have a ton of liked videos that are about GoAnimate. He just likes some videos and he even puts some of them on his reaction videos (the kind where they put clips of their favorite characters and such).

Overall, this video is just awesome. I don't really look up the GoAnimate community that much on YouTube, since all of them are just rabid fanboys or fangirls while getting easily upset over people who have different opinions from them. But, GoAnimate just has you dragging and dropping pre-drawn characters while using robotic voices for speech. That's pretty much the whole website in a nutshell. I don't even think most of them who use it actually draw (no offense).
