  • Creating animations has always been considered as one of the most complex aspects of graphic design that requires specific software and technological expertise. It is a time-intensive activity that requires heavy software and high speed computers. However, over the past few years, the emergence of different online presentation and animation tools have simplified the process of creating animations. Most of these web-based tools are very easy to operate and can create animations that are perfectly suitable for everyday applications. Nice useful slides. sollylabs.com

  • hello everyone :) I'm using Pencil ver. 0.5 and there are some pros and cons as well: good thing is that Pencil is very easy to use, works on old hardware as well as new one, it's for free etc.
    the worse things are: color filling doesn't work properly (well, almost never) in vector layer, there is no parallax scrolling et all etc.
    anyway, I made this video in Pencil (except for parallax scrolling):
