: I'll tell you why I avoid computer animation programs: they don't make any sense.

: Traditional animation techniques were developed to accomodate the concepts of time and action. If I want to depict an action happening at a certain time, I draw the picture and pinpoint it on my exposure sheet.

: There are no computer programs that are that simple. Computers are supposed to make our work easier, but in the case of computer animation, it is all based on some incredibly complex series of hoop-jumping and alligator-wrestling. The commands written by a bunch of pocket-protector-toting, doritos-munching, grease heads make absolutely no sense to an animator.

: It's wonderful that some of you have learned how to bark like a dog. I'm still waiting for somebody to write an animating program that isn't like learning a whole new language.

: And when that happens, my friend, you'll be out of a job, because I'll be computer animating like the wind.

Are ya comin' over or what?! The Lakers rule, 'twas just a momentary lapse in discipline. Check out my site! I added a new scene, let me know what ya think! You can already use your existing website as an anonymous FTP site, it's easy to set up; what you need is a server capable of delivering streaming movies in order to effectively start broadcasting your short animations on the web, you can do it! Uh, let's see...I would think you should be able to use the images you scan using Toon Boom's system into Flash already. If you can import a path from Adobe Illustrator into Flash, why not a line drawing from Toon Boom? It's all vector graphics, yeah? Do you know anyone who has tried this? Anyway....that should catch me all up! Whassup!
