Watching this video reminds me of the time I started using Flash and that Ifinally had the ability to do what I always wanted to do and that was make animation.

Looks like I was not the only out there.  Enjoy this little documentary about the Rise of Animation.

Here is part 1 by the way!

If you are trying to create your very own anime you could definately get more done using MOCAP.

I have been in love with MOCAP for years.  While I do love Keyframe animation, I love MOCAP because it can help me tell a story so much quicker.

Remember this sight is designed to help even those with very limited skills be able to create their own anime.  MOCAP can be a key.

 

MOCAP used to be only for the big studios with money but now things have changed.  There are all types of systems now ranging from free, to in program, to even a cheap but effective wearable mocap.

Here are 5 cheap MOCAP tools you could get your hands on.

This reminded me of those Japanese, novels/games.  Someone let me know the name.    I have been enjoying this.  I think he also uses a psuedo 3d method to create this animated series.

If you want to tell your story here is another way to do it.
