KToon: Simple 2D animation

Filed under: Linux, Software — rakeshvk @ 4:20 pm

If you are running Mac OS X or Microsoft Windows, you have access to many different animation applications, ranging from Adobe Flash to Anime Studio. That is not so for Linux. While many think of animation in Linux as a lost cause, there are alternatives. The relatively new KToon calls itself “the open source animation revolution.” KToon has a small learning curve and an intuitive interface, making it an excellent choice for simple animation within Linux.

KToon was designed for animators by the animators at Toonka. To use KToon, you need a CPU speed of 800MHz or more, at least 256MB of RAM, and 5MB of free space, as well as Qt 4.1.1 or higher. If you really want to create, those numbers should probably be higher. I have found that a processor that is faster than 1GHz with at least 512MB of RAM does well. >>>>
