I think I got a link through this forum once about The Lion King being based on a Japanese cartoon series, the similarities were astounding... I don't recall that link in this forum (it may be in here, I just don't remember it), but the name of the animated series was "Kimba: The White Lion" by Osa...

...but none as stupid as a computer. That's the truth. If any of you have read Richard Williams "The Animator's Survival Kit", every example of bad inbetweening is almost always the default for any computer claiming to do so "automatically". Cheers to Moho and it's bone system for taking vector ani...

I'm guessing that since it's by the same guy who did Dexter's Lab, and the Powerpuff Girls, it's probably done the same way. The last rumor I heard, they were using ToonBoom. Although they could be using any Flash type animation software (or even hand drawing it). But it is conceivable that you coul...

I used Maya (4.0 at the time) for The Boy Who Could Smell the Future. I rendered things out in layers where possible and composited it all in After Effects.

Ever watch a Disney cartoon? Whether it's from 1935 or 2004 they are boring pieces... I disagree. While they're writing often isn't quite as punchy as Looney Toons, there are some real classics in the Disney archives. A number of their short films were particularly entertaining (I particularly like...

That looks great! I hope it can find it's way to a US release (or at least DVD release). See what we're all missing out on!

And I realized, to my chagrin, that in the US (and maybe Europe, too) people seem to equate 2D with "children" and 3D with "adult". This is one of my biggest pet peeves with peoples' prejudice towards animation. It drives me crazy to hear people only validate 3D animation as worthwhile entertainmen...

No worries!! :D It may be useful to someone in the US. And like you said it may help you decide what you're looking for and what to look out for. In particular a wide variety of courses is often a good sign of a decent animation school. Good luck!

Thanks for all of the suggestions but I guess that's my point. :) The tools are all there. Currently, you just have to jump through hoops to use them. The actual process of putting an animation together (and refining it) is such a large orginizational task, that any tools that can add that organizat...

Art Rage - http://www.ambientdesign.com/artrage.html

This was recommended by spasmodic_cheese in an unrelated thread. Thought I'd put it here for everyone ;)

Just tried it out. Pretty cool. It's a fun and simple paint program for Windows. But most importantly it's free

Sorry for the long post, but you asked for it. First of all, learn to draw. Take classes, doodle and sketch all the time. Draw, draw, draw. It would have made things a lot easier for me. It isn't entirely crucial to be an expert, but it sure does help to know how to sketch out your ideas (even if yo...

We can focus on discussing if LUA can help to get those "lacks" out of the way. Or am I missing something? Sorry, my intent wasn't to shut down a discussion on whether Lua could add on the functionality that some of us are looking for. I had intended to only point out that there's a scripting forum...

There are several things it's missing. Notably: -the ability to compare and work on more than one layer at a time (this is a huge problem of all the keying, not just switch layers, IMO, how can you retime a whole scene, other than doing it all, layer by layer by hand) -the actual name of the layer i...
