Pencil – 2D animation

Well you may laugh! It’s the reason I am not an art or media teacher! Pencil is a good little programme though for 2D animation and the site itself offers you some support and help, but a lot of students these days would find this an easy programme to work with and produce something they are pleased with. It’s effective but not complex. If you have those sorts of skills you can help in the development of Pencil as they have a section for that . The gallery and screenshots give you a clear idea of how you can use it, but it is not meant to be in competition with the vector based animation programmes. It is just a nice programme to get some uncomplicated animation going. Again, it is cross platform software which will work on all major OS’s and that’s a relief!

Art of Illusion

I am a big fan of cross platform software. Choose the operating system which suits you and your needs, because that is what it boils down to, and then get the software you want. In our current climate we often have to go cross platform because we choose our OS at home and then there is a different one at work…or one for one system and another for another system. Cross platform software means you can choose your software and work with what you want and then the OS is not an issue. Art of Illusion is free , cross platform software which is a 3D modelling and rendering studio. If you take a look at the screenshots and gallery sections of the site you will see if is a very capable piece of software. You cannot just fudge it. You have to know what you are doing but there is help. The site is also an opportunity to explore and share this software with others and more and more the sharing and community approach to learning is becoming normal and that’s good. The contribution part of the site here and there are opportunities to do all sorts of things to help develop The Art Of Illusion, not the least of which is to contribute to tutorials. I really need those tutorials!! There is pressure for us to be able to do everything on a computer and we cannot…not without help.
