Animation

Recommended Posts

I was thinking of doing a few small animations for some youtube videos (about science, and stuff). I was wondering if anyone out there knew of any free animation programs (preferably with some nice tutorials, or like a nice, easy to use interface like paint.NET has) (or perhaps even if someone had made some animation plugin for paint.NET, which wouldn't be impossible. All you'd need to introduce would be a sort of onion-skin with some sort of frames system similar to the existing layers system? then users would just copy across the previous frame, and ever so slightly either with the liquify plugin, or pixel by pixel, change the frame?).

 

Anyway. A free animation program :)

Hi @Pedestrian - here is a tutorial on how to use Midora's Plugin for making animated images:  http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?/topic/31665-make-an-animated-gif-with-midoras-plugin/

Might I ask, can it only be used to make GIF format images? Or is it possible to export it as a .wav or other type of video file?

(Its cuz I need non-looping animations)

Pedestrain, those are designed only for GIF animations.

If you want animations for videos, you'll most likely need a different tool.

FYI .wav is an uncompressed audio file not video file. If you need tools to edit video and output as animated GIF, there are better tools out there. This is the wrong forum to ask for that, you're better off asking on a video site like videohelp.com

well, I'm not outputting as a GIF firstly, i'm outputting as an actual video I'd like to. Plus, I've never heard of videohelp.com and this is just offtopic/Grand theory of everything :)
