Animation apps

Animation on the computer comes in all shapes and sizes and there are an army of digital tools behind it all.

The idea of computers doing the 'in-betweens' isnt new, but if it can be nailed it would be great for all.

oh, and a couple of links on using animation/comic/graphics tech in teaching: Macinstruct, NCS-tech...
