Animated GIF images are widespread on the Internet, despite the fact that most modern browsers can play video on a web page with no additional software installed. GIF images have lots of drawbacks compared to video files - they’re much bigger, don’t support true-colors (GIF palette is limited to 256 distinct colors), can’t include sound - but they’re still a popular way to distribute short animations or even video clips. Even in 2014.
Our latest video tutorial, brought to you by animator Joe Campanaro, shows you how to import and animate graphics that you’ve created in other programs (in this case, characters). This way, you can work in tools you’re familiar with, or use existing artwork without having to recreate everything using Animatron’s drawing tools. Enjoy!
