South Australian Artist, Writer, Video Producer and Animator, David Arandle working under the pseudonym 'The Extraordinary Tourist' or 'TET' for short Blogs about his personal animation projects as well as Tips, Software Reviews, Featured Animators Animation Business and a whole lot more. Pencil is a 2D bitmap and vector based, free animation tool for MACs, Windows and Linux that I'd like to say is the perfect introduction to 2D, computer assisted animation but can't.It is a great tool.
Synfig Studio is intended to be professional 2D animation software and is available to download for free. Can't draw or animate to save your life but want to create cartoons or explainer videos? I think that if you had that success, you should consider to offer the precompiled .deb package to the creators of Pencil, to make it available via their website.

Need help in animation?Step By Step Checklist To Realistic Animation (Printable Version)Use this cheat sheet to help you monitor your animation progress. It's great for learning or just trying stuff out, but it certainly isn't what I would consider production quality software.
But if you must waste your time then try it.FOSS is not about being just a 2nd rate software. I've got Feisty, installed the libs, but compiling won't work, either with Mac-source oder Windows-source.
Reply Nicknamz on June 4, 2007 6:43 pm Is a cool begining i think, i like the program is simple, maybe time bring more new features and bugs fixed.
Reply j0llyr0ger on June 5, 2007 2:53 pm Since you are mentioning commercial softares also- have a look at Anime Studio. Contact the seller- opens in a new window or tab and request a shipping method to your location.
We offer full customer support with our products so please contact us if you need any help before leaving feedback, star ratings or using Resolve a Problem option. However, you can always practice with some free software that comes with drawing and animating capability. Its interface is filled with hand drawn graphic, giving a fun cartoon atmosphere and generally easy to learn.


You can also download the professional version for another 30-day free trial, so in total you get 60 days of free trial. I've also included check points to help you apply principle of animation which will make your animation looks realistic.
In fact you can create an entire animation within Pencil, including audio tracks, and then export it all to a single movie file that you can upload anywhere. If you enjoy BlenderNation and you think it’s a valuable resource to the Blender community, please take a moment to read how you can support BlenderNation. Two major complaints I have (other than not running in linux) are a problem with the vector tool (it always moves my curves into the corner of the paper after I draw them, maybe I'm just not using it properly) an heavy memory usage (or maybe a leak)I've tried PAP as well, but I find it a lot more complicated to use.
Had that also been the case of Blender, then I wouldn't have ordered the Official Blender Guide Book. Reply Bmud on June 4, 2007 8:09 pm I've been hunting for something like this for a long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long time. The drawing tools are a little strange and not perfect, but easy to get used to.If you are looking for inexpensive 2d animation app that can produce pro looking output, have a look at Anime Studio.

I've searched on the internet for free software for Mac's Maverick OS that you can consider if you wish to learn to create your own cartoon video. This software makes use of the traditional frame by frame approach to create animation digitally. Anime Studio is similar to Adobe Flash except that it does not have any interactive aspect. New users will need to spend some time to familiarise with its interface before any project development. Learning animation does not necessarily needs a professional software, albeit it will be the ideal situation. I do know blender is always ready to compete -- it has its own strength, as well as, weakness. This will affect our ratings and make it more difficult to resolve any issues that can easily be fixed with a simple message to us instead. UK Next Day delivery should arrive the next working day but can take up to a maximum of 2 working days. The software's interface provides a beginner mode, which simplifies the usage of the tools for new users. You can still learn the animation fundamentals by having fun with drawing things that you like. This is similar to the traditional development where the artist uses light box to see through tracing paper for drawing reference.
This software comes with pre-drawn animation which you can easily insert into your canvas and learn from them. This software comes with powerful animation tools such as bones and rigging tools to control characters easily. With Blender, you can create 3D models and animation just like other professional 3D software.
On top of that you could choose to edit all your frames in any bitmap editing software you choose then just import them into Pencil, add some sounds, export to a movie file and you're done. And it does so in the grand open source way!If you haven't heard of Pencil you've been missing out.


The final animation video will have a Digicel logo watermark for this trial version until you buy the full version at USD$58.
If you like to draw and learn animation, Animation-ish could be great affordable animation software to start with.
If that's all you need to do I highly recommend this software - its free - so give it a try.Once you get into vector animation the frustration starts to set in. Currently, if you want to rotoscope a sequence of images, you have to load each image frame by frame, and it is very long and tedious.With a bit of luck, this feature could be added and the software improved in the direction of a rotoscoping tool. It's priced at USD$59 and can be downloaded digitally so it is very convenient to get a copy of it. Crashed three times for me on XP, so I'll be looking forward to future, more stable releases, but it looks like it could be good.
If you haven't properly closed an area you'll keep getting a warning message telling you there's a gap in your drawing or you've 'Zoomed Out too much'. This is a known problem that is documented within Pencil's manual.It's frustrating because often there are no obvious gaps - even if you zoom right in to check. It lets you create traditional hand-drawn animation (cartoon) using both bitmap and vector graphics. Pencil is free and open source.Pencil is not intended to mimick web-oriented vector-based animation software such as Flash.
If you can't find any gaps then the best solution seems to be to break the area up into smaller fill areas using the 'invisible line' tool. Then fill each section as you go until the area is all filled.Because of the buggy nature of this software, personally I wouldn't use it to create anything too advanced like a full vector animated movie. Neither does it try to rival commercial software targetting the professional animation sector. Pencil is intended to be a simple program enabling anyone to make 2D animation.Give the program a try. Another REALLY pro software (not open source) is the Danish "PAP", aka "Plastic animation paper". On the second there are ten frames for the fire.You'll notice there is also a camera layer in the time line. How odd.I'd take a shot at compiling it myself, or running it under Wine, but I'm really not very good with real pencils, so I doubt this app would change anything. Just like other layers you create key frames for the different camera shots.For GoAnimate users you'll need to create a camera layer for your object with just one key frame. You'll then need to size your object relative to how big you want it to be (initially) compared to the stage (generally it's best to make sure your object always fits within the stage. You can easily make it larger once you've imported it onto the GoAnimate Stage).You'll then need to position your object in the top left corner of the stage with the corner being approximately in the middle of the object as shown below. Whilst it's great for backgrounds, animated props and heads, it cannot save files in the correct format for characters.Despite it's short comings I've used Pencil to create all my vector based props on GoAnimate. Sometimes I drag my feet thinking, oh no, I don't want to use pencil again, but, unless you want to buy some software, I haven't come across any other free vector animation software compatible with GoAnimate.Like I said it's a good stop gap. If you find yourself using Pencil a lot and you're really interested in flash animation then you'll probably want to buy something better eventually.That aside, for a free program it really does have potential. The drawing tools are quite basic but, with enough patience, you really could do some very impressive animation work.
