Joel Weber brought the news to the AN Forums about the software he's developing which will give everyone the opportunity to animate. The software is called Animajig and Joel's gone the Kickstarter route in hopes of funding the project and getting it launched.
Animajig is a Web-based application, completely written in HTML5, so it plays everywhere. It's a 2D skeletal animation system. What makes it unique is that the animation is built using assets that are created by and shared between all users. So if someone makes a cool skin or action, everyone can use it. The community's resources are used to create animation. This gives animators a chance to interact with their audience in a way not previously possible. Viewers can respond by creating animation using the very characters they just watched. Animajig gives everyone a chance to create!
