My apologies if this is in the wrong thread, I'm new here!
I'm looking for insight on what software to use to get acquainted with animation.
I'm a college student, going to a liberal arts school. They have an art degree, but not a whole lot of variety in their art classes. I want to self-teach as much as possible, then consider transferring to an art school. However, being a college student, I can only afford so much.
Here's the deal: I currently own Toon Boom Harmony Stage 10.3, Studio Ghibli's OpenToonz, and Adobe Animate CC. As of now, I can't obtain Harmony 12/14.
Which of these softwares should I use to get my foot in the door? Or do you have any other recomendations?
For a bit of background: I have about a decade experience in digital art. I currently specialize in digital painting, usually with Paint Tool SAI and Photoshop. The extent of my animation experience is pretty much bare-minimum. I've made flipnotes on Flipnote Hatena and put together some simple PVs on Sony Vegas, but that's about it.
Any advice at all would be so appreciated. Thanks so much.
