Okay, let's talk about animation tools.

As I mentioned yesterday, making GIFs is as easy as drawing still pictures and putting them into a GIF maker.

There's also flip books and stop motion!
If you're looking for programs, I haven't found much of a match for Adobe After Effects.

But there are a few cool programs.

@Mohotwitter (Moho, prev Anime Studio) is probably my favorite alt 2D animation softward.
For 3D, you should definitely check out

@maxon3d (Cinema 4D) and @blender_org (Blender)

I've seen absolutely amazing stuff in both, but love that Blender is a free and open source software!
@maxon3d @blender_org And one you might not have thought about, but that I'm thinking about A LOT is @unity3d .

I've been playing with game design lately, and Unity has some AMAZING tools and plugins for animating right in the program!!!

I'll def be using this more!
@maxon3d @blender_org @unity3d What animation tools did I miss? What do you prefer? Share your experiences!
