Free Animation software for beginners!

Have you always wanted to tell extraordinary stories?
Well, who doesn’t?
But you must be very careful while telling stories. Because the story would be a failure if
    • The idea isn’t conveyed properly and concisely.
    • The audience loses interest while the story is being told.
So, storytelling is actually a skill and has to be done the right way.

3. Animating without Drawing

In the traditional method of animation, if you want to animate a character, you have to follow three steps:
  1. Trace the character
  2. Manually draw every character frame, and
  3. Play the frames in a loop to animate them.
Like this…

This is quite a laborious process. Imagine how long it would take if you were creating a long video or a movie!
To save you from the hassle of animating a character on a frame-by-frame basis, Animaker has an option called Action+. 
To every character in the library or the custom characters you create, you can apply 500+ actions and 20+ expressions.
Changing Actions
Using the Action+ option, you can apply multiple actions to the same character and animate it. In addition, you can use the “Apply smooth motion” checkbox to make the actions look natural.
Check out this tutorial to learn how to use the Action+ option:

Instead of drawing a character from scratch, all you have to do is make some clicks, and voila - your animated character is ready!

4. 100M+ Stock Assets

To create a video, one needs more than just Characters. You will need apt backgrounds, properties, text animations, special effects, scene transitions, images, videos, background music, etc. Any tool will only be considered a “good 2d animation software” when all this is present.
And Animaker is indeed one of the complete animation softwares!

5. Adding voiceovers
