Pencil2D is the best and most straight forward traditional animation program.

Otherwise I'd use Spriter, but I think it's more fun to make and watch hand drawn animation than turn it into a technical thing.alspal2014-01-02 09:37:13

It depends on what type of sprite/character art style you want . For 3d rendered animations you could try Daz3d.It's base installation is free. The rest of the 3d models and props you have to buy though.

DrawPlus Starter Edition - Free

Link

It's a 2D vector program. If you try it and like it, they are having an sale right now for upgrading to DrawPlus X5 for 70% off. So it ends up costing around $30. DrawPlus X5 can do animation too.

I use iclone by reallusion.

There's a learning curve but it's worth it.

For pixel art animation I recommend Pickle

http://www.pickleeditor.com/

It's really useful to draw your animated sprites as it is easy to use, has onion skin, real time view of what your animation looks like as you're drawing it and is cheap.

The only drawback is that there is no layer system, but you dont really need it for pixel art :pShapter2014-02-10 14:28:44
