Ive done a good bit of stop-mo and some CGI. in fact I just finished an hour-long film entitled "Fishbowl". (a mix of live action and animation)
I am intersted in doing some 2d animation next. Don't have a lotta funds so I bought a copy of Anime Studio Pro, my initial tests seem pretty nice and it has some juicy features to it like the "switch layer" feature (plus the 3d stuff).
Im thinking of doing sort of a hybrid technique of "paper-cut-out" combined with "vector drawing" or as I like to call it, "moving dots around".
some folks have said that drawing frames is a no-no with this program. could someone please elaborate? not certain if Im stepping into quicksand and would like to hear thoughts of experienced folks. please holler at me... whos used this program?
