CreaToon - Now FREECommunity Forums/Developer Stations/CreaToon - Now FREE
| While Googling 2D animation software, I just spotted that CreaToon www.creatoon.com 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 http://downloads.e-frontier.com/us/user/anime_studio_50_demo_product_23929 so you can compare them.
Of course, in price CreaToon wins hands down. :)
| This looks nice, will give it a try! |
