While Googling 2D animation software, I just spotted that CreaToon has been made free. CreaToon is a realtime bit-map based cut-out animation software for Windows, that used to cost around $250-400 if I remember correctly. It's a bit like Anim Studio (previously known as Moho), but more bitmap based.

Potentially a great tool for creating animated sprites, without drawing every frame.

Thanks for the heads up. You just made my night.

Oh goodie :) Must check this out. Has anyone here used the software before? How does it compare to Moho?

Thanks for posting this ragtag.

Don't know exactly how it compares to Moho (now Anime Studio). Moho is mostly vector based, but does support bitmaps. While CreaToon is mostly bitmap based, but supports vectors now. :)

I have only looked a little at both. I found Moho to be very slow on my iBook, even with rather simple scenes. While CreaToon as far as I know, uses OpenGL to draw everything, so was very fast (on my old Windows box).

There is a demo of Moho/Anime Studio here so you can compare them.

Of course, in price CreaToon wins hands down. :)
