I've heard of Animategif but I was looking for a few others to test out before I made my mind up. I've been using WMM for animations but you can't save them into a usable format. :faint:

Thanks.

Animaki. But it's for pixel animations.

Blender is a pain in the ass, but your best bet for free.

You can get Autodesk Maya for free from a certain website (I forget the name, so you'll have to dig around ^^', but they offer it to art students for free) but you can't use it without an education >> I've tried, even with tutorials it's pretty much impossible; literally a foreign language xD" Unfortunately, all of the really nice ones are super complicated like that XD"
Pencil is a nice little 2D program. It works for simple animations, and with practice can make some decent anime style stuff. It's free: [link] Hope that helps :)

Hey, does Pencil work on Windows 7? I only see XP and Vista listed. :o

Yeah, the Windows XP link under downloads works for all windows (except maybe the new one) :)

Okay, so it would still work even with Windows 7?

I'm pretty sure, it's been a while since I downloaded it but I think that's the link I used xD

In fact, Maya is very, very simple. Much more simple than Blender.

Coming from someone who has used both.

Oh, I'm sure with more practice I could figure it out, but I'm fairly new to it now and I know I would benefit from an instructor. It seems very complicated when you've never seen something like it before xD

I'm no expert on this by any means, just sharing what I know xD
