Mostly Flash, but I recently got Toonboom Animate and TvPaint and now I use the latter for rough "pencil" animation and the former for cleaning up/ink & paint. Eventually I'll probably leave Flash completely. I still hope to get back to Moho some day.

I don't see why you should be getting an error message, it's just an ordinary quicktime movie. Unless you mean the original link from way back when, in which case, I took the files down from the server after a while.

. I'm using it to ink and paint animation created in TVPaint at the moment (I'm working on a cel-animation, and Moho isn't the right tool for that job). Why aren't you doing ink and paint in TVPaint? Are you 'vectorizing' lines? I started the project in Flash, and intend to output as a .swf. Also, ...

I just got Animate (upgrade from Studio Pro for $400), and it produces some excellent results, if you're willing to put some extra time into it. I'm using it to ink and paint animation created in TVPaint at the moment (I'm working on a cel-animation, and Moho isn't the right tool for that job). On t...

The chin is pretty close to the right size for this character. The forehead is too low, something that is extremely common among beginning artists due to the fact that the forehead has no features, making it harder to gauge the distance between the top of the eyes and the top of the head. People are...

No, it's just the next version of ToonBoom Solo with a different name. Same price, too.

Toon Boom Storyboard

Just got an email today about the release of a storyboard program from Toon Boom. This is the "non-pro", low end version of their $800 Storyboard Pro software. The remarkable thing is, they are charging $250 for a program that has no real advantage, as far as I can see, over using paper and pencil. ...

Oh, right, I remember seeing that thread now. Oddly, at the time I thought the software didn't sound that impressive. My experience with it has been pretty good. Image import works. I like the dynamic zoom. It also has rotation of the drawing area that works nicely, although this would be more usefu...

Free (traditional) animation program "Pencil".

I just found this, don't know if it's been mentioned on here before: http://www.les-stooges.org/pascal/pencil/index.php?id=Home It's a pretty decent program for basic frame-by-frame animation, as if you were drawing on paper. There's a bitmap pencil tool and a vector tool which isn't quite as good a...

The flowing skirt and cape are going to look weird when/if you try to animate. Esp. the skirt. It already looks like it's whipping around the way you drew it, and unless you animate those flowing folds they will look frozen when the rest of the figure is moving. That figure in the skirt is really im...

I really like how the shading is subtle. I think one mistake a lot of people make is to combine shaded fills with black outlines, and I think those tend to fight against each other.

Very nice. I wouldn't add sound effects, or if you do they shouldn't be too cartoony. The second half could use a bit more zing. The first half has a lot of funny moments, like the snake pointing to himself with his tail. The second half is just a series of images zooming in one after another. It wo...

AS/Moho was used for crowd shots. That is, the particle system was used for crowd shots.

Actually, check out Google's Sketch Up application. While it's designed with architectural purposes in mind, it has many of the features Canoma offered back when it was still around. Also the software is free and runs on both Macs and Windows PCs. Sketchup is also a good suggestion, but it's not fr...
