Ed's daughter loves to draw, and he got her a Wacom Bamboo tablet to do it digitally. She's even animated her drawings with Movie Maker. There are several options that would be much better suited for this, however:
If she was on an Apple platform, Leo would recommend this.
- Toon Boom
The chatroom mentioned this, but it's pricey at $300.
- Flip Boom All Star
This is $30.
Another option is to just use Quicktime and combine a bunch of images using the "image sequence" command.
- Pencil Animation
This would be a perfect option, because it's open source and free.
- My Paint
- Animation Desk
