Is there any software to learn 2D Instructional Animation


#1

Hello,

I am a new learner in animation. And I am looking for the best software to learn animation easily.
I searched out many resources and also tried a lot of softwares but wasn’t satisfied with that. So It would be great if you can suggest me with any such software that would help me complete my 2D Instructional Animation project.
Please help me as soon as possible.

Any help will be appreciated.
Thank you.

From the link, they mostly look like vector-based 2D animation. Adobe Animate and ToonBoom are the ones you will have to look into. Tupi is also available for a free software but I have never used it so I am not sure about that.

As far as the best software to learn animation easily goes, I would suggest Pencil2D, lightweight and you start animating as soon as you start the software and no need to spend a lot of time in just learning about the software. But as of now, Pencil2D is still a bitmap based animation, even though it has vector tools, but it needs quite a lot of improvement.

Usually, making an animated film or shorts requires a combination of software: like Adobe Animate(the animation software), Adobe Audition(sound recordings and anything related to sound), Adobe After Effects(the compositor, where the animated frames all come together) and Adobe Premier Pro(the video editor to make the final clip).

My version of free softwares would be Pencil2D, Audacity(sound), Natron or Fusion Lite(Compositor), and for a video editor, either Blender VSE/Kdenlive/Shotcut/Openshot/Da Vinci Resolve(require high-end PC for the last one).

@sumit_makwana Don’t bother answering this guy.

It’s a “thematic” spammer, it always comes with a different message related to animation, videogames and such. It also injects that website on each post. You can check the modus operandi on it’s profile.

Just to be safe please check your computer with an antivirus and a trojan analyzer like malwarebytes if you’re not infected with anything.

Sorry I wasn’t quick enough to flag it. But I can’t ban it or silence it :frowning:
