This intuitive software for web animation allows you to draw directly into the computer. It also offers a revolutionary approach to handling vectors; instead of grabbing vector points, you can pull or bend a vector by clicking anywhere on an image. The UI comes with four separate rooms (screens) designed for drawing, animating, compositing, and browsing. Features like path, morph, controls, and onionskin go a long way in assisting animators who are willing to take the plunge into the digital world.
The Good News: Moving/copying and manipulating frames have never been easier.
The Wish List: More tutorials are definitely needed.
The Bottom Line: A must have for the animator who wants to take it to the next level.
