I remember as a kid wishing I could do animation. At the time hardly anyone had a computer. I first saw a computer when I was 9 years old and thought. Wow! This could be used to do animation. What couldn’t you do with a computer? That was 1987 or 1988.
I didn’t really have a way to animate even then. No scanner, no money, I don’t even think they had a mouse. But the day finally came when we got a computer. I was 19 years old and I grabbed my first Animation Master Software for $299. I started reading all the magazines I could as internet was still limited. Boy did I love those PC magazines about art.
But now there is nowhere near the limits you once had.
In fact if you want to do 2d or 3d there is a ton of free software available.
Moven has been a really cool software for some years. If you cannot afford Toon Boom or Flash this one will get you where you need to be if you want to do 2d Anime.
Here. Feel free to download it.
Here are some of the cool new features.
