a great introduction to animation,
This review is from: I Can Animate (PC/Mac) (CD-ROM)This package is ideal for all those (young & old!) who want to make and enjoy animated films. All you need is a video camera or, much cheaper but equally effective, a webcam. I purchased a perfectly adequate webcam on Ebay for a few pounds. You can animate solid objects moving, paper cut outs, drawings or plastecine models (like Morph). The software is easy to use and rewarding results are almost guaranteed.One extra facility I have just tried is time lapse filming. I set up a tray of cress seeds on wet cotton wool with a light and the camera, leaving it over a weekend when away from home. An image was taken every hour and the resulting film was brilliant- even though I say it myself!
There are more sophistcated packages available but "I Can Animate" is a great introduction.
