hey a bit of a random question, but im sort of wondering if anyone out there knows much bout animation, and software. i want to be able to make my own cartoons lol.

like full on cartoons, not some lame slide show esk thing, but full motion you know the works, looking for some top of the range software.


ANYONE? lol

I'm studing a course which deals with a whole bunch of stuff including animation.

Best thing to use would be Macromedia Flash, but i highly recommend taking the time to at least read a bunch of tuts or take lessons. Plus, you have to be extreamly patient, especially when dealing with hundreads to thousands of keyframes.

Yeah flash all the way, I used to make animations in my spare time at college or whilst in web development. Defo take the tutorial and be very patient. Buying one of those USB drawing pads would be good if your serious about it.

Toon Boom studio is good as well as flash.

If you're good at drawing, then invest in a decent graphics tablet.
