1 HOW TO MAKE ANIMATIONS FOR FREE!! on Sat Oct 21, 2017 11:02 pm


BS Newbie
Hi! I decided to make a list about


This list is only going to include programs... I tried to include legal software's so i'm not going to include
cracked programs..... Also if you want to make full body animations, you'll probably going to need a
drawing tablet... A drawing tablet is handy for stick animations too, but you still can animate with a shitty or good mouse tho

But now, let's start to talk about free open source programs!


1 Macromedia Flash MX 2004:
The first and the best choice to make great animations, is Flash (or Animate) of course! But, sadly Flash/Animate is a paid software.... BUT!! There's an old version of Flash, called Macromedia Flash MX 2004... Adobe is no longer supports this software, so Adobe is relased a fully working serial! So you can use it, if you find the Flash MX 2004 trial version! Flash is very easy to use, and it has a lot of great features! (Sadly in Flash mx 2004, there's no filters option, so you can't do effects.... But it's still free, and you can use it for making awesome animations!)

serial: FLD700-59705-99286-82099
Also big thanks to Jesse J. Jones, because he found out this way to get Flash!

2 OpenToonz:
This software is completely free, and pretty advenced!! It has a lot more features than Flash, but a bit harder to use! In this software you can do frame by frame animation, you can make rigged characters, and you can move them, also the coloring tools are really powerfull, and there's a lot more features still! So yeah, this program is very powerfull as i said! It has basically all the features that Toon boom Harmony has (Note: Toon boom harmony costs 2,085 euro.... And OpenToonz costs nothing).... So OpenToonz could be everything you need to make awesome animations!

1 FireAlpaca:
A drawing software seems useless if you making animations, but in the reality using a software made for making good looking drawings, is good for making backgrounds for your animation too! FireAlpaca is a great alternative to Paint tool sai! It has all the same features! So with this software you can make some good looking backgrounds, for your awesome animation!

2 Krita:
Krita is a great alternative to Photoshop! It's a bit more advenced than FireAlpaca, also it's a bit harder to use, but if you learn the basics, then Krita is more comfortable to use!

1 OpenShot:
OpenShot is a very easy to use software! It has all the basic feature that an editing software need! Sadly it's a bit buggy i think! But you still can use it for some editing!

2 HitFilm Express:
This software is completely free and very advenced! It's a very good alternative for Adobe Premiere Pro, even the shortcuts are the same! HitFilm Express is made especially for VFX, but you still can use it for
editing! I recommend this software, it's really great!

Recording, audio editing:

1 AudaCity:
These software's are optional.. if you wanna make stick fights, then you probably not going to need a recording software (only if you wanna make synced fights).... But anyway! Audacity is a free audio recorder and editor... It's great and it's everything you need..... That's all! It's simply everything you ever going to need to record sounds!

Soo yeah! Finally i finished this list! I hope you found good softwares for makin animations... And... Yeah that's all.... I hope i didn't made any grammar mistake, if i made, please correct me, and maybe i will learn something new today! And now i have nothing to say...


Have fun animating Very Happy
