Re: Adobe Announces Flash Distribution and Updates to End

PS another reason a lot of kids are relying on older versions of Flash to animate: hacked versions of old Flash 8/CS4 copies are easy to come by, and Flash is quite beginner friendly. You just have to check the animation forum at Newgrounds. Moho, OpenToonz, and Toonboom are more intimidating to the...

Re: Adobe Announces Flash Distribution and Updates to End

Just wondering: Since the current Animate CC supports HTML 5 output, does it really matter that Flash Player is no longer supported? It seems to me like the platform is just adapting to current web standards. I'm not an expert on Animate CC though, I only started learning it a week ago. We work wit...

Adobe Announces Flash Distribution and Updates to End

The end of an era. Adobe has announced today it will stop distributing and updating Flash Player at the end of 2020 and is encouraging web developers to migrate any existing Flash content to open standards. Apple is working with Adobe, industry partners, and developers to complete this transition. F...

Re: Opentoonz v1.1.3 released!

A new branch of Opentoonz is available which includes both the horizontal timeline AND the MyPaint bitmap painting brush engine! And both 64bit and 32bit builds are provided, which is nice for users stuck in a 32bit Windows. Get it here: https://morevnaproject.org/2017/07/17/horizontal-timeline-now-...

Re: MediBang Paint - interesting free comic drawing software

MediaBang Paint looks interesting, in particular on mobile platforms. I tried it on my Android tablet, and it works well. But I love painting in Krita, and MB Paint is a bit too shallow for my taste, and I really missed all the options and brush sets I have available in Krita. That said, Krita is mo...

Re: Opentoonz v1.1.3 released!

The sad truth is that for both the Windows and the Linux versions many more developers seem to be active and willing to participate. I have seen this happen in other open source projects as well. I am unsure what the underlying reason would be - perhaps open source developers avoid Macs? Thing is, M...

Re: Moho doesn't work well with Unity? For games?

Although I love Moho, I would never use it export FBX characters directly to Unity. Too glitchy, and not all features of Moho are supported. If you need a production-proven 2d cut-out animation tool with mesh deformation/bones/IK that is actively supported by Unity's community with many examples, I'...
