At the Animation Expo today (where I got to meet the stalwart Charles) the Linker folks were selling the professional version of their traditional animation system for $595. Yep, a full 90% discount from the regular $5995! It's a show only special and I'm very tempted to go for it, but I'd like to hear from anyone who can compare it to AXA (which I'm not familiar with but know is also fairly affordable) and Animo (which I am familar with and know is very pricey) and any other relevant pencil test/ink and paint system.
BTW, the Linker people clearly see animation going in the direction that has been discussed on this board (i.e., decentralized, with artists doing their own production for TV, cable, internet, etc.). They said this special price is a test. I suspect it will become the regular price at some point, but who knows when.
