Creating 2D fun animations is not easy. CreaToon can help you in this task. This software is designed to help in this task and to gain speed in the design. CreaToon can design 2D animations quickly. To do this, you just have to gradually gather selected parts of the animation and to repeat the parts completely. So as to profit from original work, the user can add effects to the design. More than that, users are allowed to scan a handmade painting and use it as an animation. It is compatible with many image file formats such as BMP, TGA, JPG, PNG, and TIFF. The images obtained in these formats can be further refined to improve the result.
Apart from that, users can also profit from other features. For instance, real-time previewing editing, automatic inbetweening as well as the opportunity to combine bitmaps with vector graphics.
CreaToon is a free and fully functional software, and this for an unlimited period of time.
