Can you recommend me some software for cutout animation? I'm just a beginner and I was doing research today about that but this is quite an emergency. I figuered out some software called Toon Boom, but it only has trial version and I can't afford the original. I have Macromedia Flash 8 on my computer so I was wondering could that work? I also heard about Adobe Flash, and can't figure out is it actually this Macromedia Flash 8 or something different? I saw there is Adobe Flash Pro on Torrent.
And is it possible to draw in some of those programs and then export image sequence so I can print them and do my cutout animation based on them? Is it posibble? I really need something to do for me frame by frame thing.. Please, help asap
yes, I wanna do it with paper and everything, but I can't use framegrabber. And because of that I must draw it on computer first, so I can print every frame and match a cutouts with it ( I guess I will use transparent celluloid paper for help). I'm a student, I can't afford those expensive softwares. And I was wondering if this could work. This means lot to me cuz I can't determine timing and spacing without it. I'm just a beginner.
I can't use framegrabber because I'm shooting with still camera. And anyway, if I had one, I'm not experienced enough to use it. It will take a much more time to experiment with it, because I can't determine how much to move cutout by my eye.. In computer it will be much easier.. it is a way around but I can't figure out any easier way to me..
Use surface gages.
that wouldn't help. As I said, I'm not experienced enough..
thanks very much! this means a lot!
Macromedia Flash 8 is Adobe Flash, just an old version of it. Adobe acquired Macromedia in 2005, absorbing their products. Some of the software that made the transition was Flash, Fireworks, Dreamweaver, Director and ColdFusion.
Though I've only dabbled with Flash myself, I don't think it will be a good fit for what you've described.
okay, thank you.
