I usually use 3-6 frames for animation. Im used to working with little or no computer resources. You can get some pretty good animation with 6 frames. Although I am well aware that 30 frames is really good for animation.

[QUOTE=mrsponkie] Ok i started to work with animestudio, but how to export as png file sheet?[/QUOTE]
For rendering your animation:
File, Export Animation, change output format to png, click OK, and name the file. If you want a character sheet with a similar layout to the example you posted, you must do it with an image editor. Or you can do copies of your animates character and pose it in Anime.

Anime Studio is a really great tool. I use it intensively in my daily work, and it is really solid. It has a great script too, to export from photoshop. The main lack is that it has not tools for traditional frame by frame animation like Flash.Aritz2011-11-20 12:27:01

export as png file sheet


Sorry for the question,but what is a png file sheet, and for what you need it ? Normaly Animestudio exported your animation as image sequence with alpha chanel. That is just right for me. vidi2011-11-20 14:22:59

Thanks Vidi. I know this program and it is quite good. But now I usually use Plastic Animation Paper. It was a commercial animation tool some years ago but now is free. It is a bit strange at first, but it is very good:

Yes :). It is only for rough animation and line art. It simply mimics a real light-table.Aritz2011-11-20 17:39:47
