Simple 2D Animation Software

Unread postAuthor: cannon freak » Fri Sep 15, 2006 5:43 pm

Does anybody know of any simple to use (CHEAP) 2D animation software? My brother wants to make short 2D animations but I can't seem to find a cheap program that is easy to use. All it has to do is allow the simple movement of body's and objects and allow music to be added.

get unfreez
http://www.whitsoftdev.com/unfreez/
its the simplest ever
pivot is also good, but more motion oriented
adobe/macromedia fireworks does motion tweens for gif animations, but u have to buy it ( or not... wink wink)

Wow, that was a fast download. So with Unfreez you make a bunch of GIFs and drag and drop them in in order, and then it just plays them all or what?

yea, make the gif still images, drag them in in order (highlight a lot and drag all at once works, but MAKE SURE YOU DRAG THE TOP ONE), set the delay/frame rate, and it will animate it

Wait, so drop in all but the one that would be the first frame? I tried a little 14 frame one and it didn't work...

Right after typing the first part of this post I removed the first frame and now it works. Yeah, that's an easy one salad.
