Software for graphics animation
I've been using Linux for more or less a year, so i still don't know much about Software for Linux. I've only been using Gimp for graphics, but i'm looking for a software that's more powerful, particularly on animation. Does anybody know one? If the software you recommend is made for a particular distro, please do specify which distro it is.

If you mean 3d animation, you have all the tools available for linux that movie producers have. Softimage and 3DSMax to name a few. But they cost alot of money. What in particular were you wanting to do? Most movies are now made with linux, so you won't be limited in options.

You could use Blender, but I hear it has a steep learning curve... Flash has a Linux port, so you can use that for 2D stuff. Maya is also ported, but $10000 dollars isn't very reasonable unless you're working under a contract :D.

oh, no, not 3D animation, just 2D animation. oh, my, they do cost a lot of money... :(

What kind of 2D? I think you can run Flash creation apps quite well under Wine.

PS: I think I misreported the price. I think it was $15000 :eek:, the same stuff they use to model Lord of the Rings.

see, i'm into drawing stuff. okay, so no hope there... how about a good software for making gif graphics? we're making some graphics for our website. we've been tinkering with gimp, but i'd very much appreciate it if somebody provided me with another software that's just as powerful, if not more. :)
