DS Animanatee is fun!

There are many awesome coders out there programming stuff for the Nintendo DS.
I mentioned the amazing painting tool "Colors" earlier.
I recently stumbled upon an animation software called "Animanatee". It's simple, superfast and very user friendly. It supports even multiple undo and one onionskin layer. Perfect for straight forward animation in the subway. ^^
There is another animation software called "FlickBook" but I didn't like the user interface. It was a bit too complicated but it has more functions though.
Anyways both have even an avi file exporter! How cool is that!? Here is a lil' walkcycle I animated with animanatee. If you own a DS....Animanatee is a must have! ^^v

Holy cow, what a coincidence.

So my brother was saying that he wanted to watch Nightmare Before Christmas since he hadn't seen it in a long time. I said I didn't like the characters in it, but Corpse Bride looked like it might be good.
Then I googled Corpse Bride and clicked one of the image results and it took me here...and right at the top is a post about my own animation program? Planets must have aligned or something.

But while I'm here I can say, thanks for the kind words. Glad you like it, and I love the little mouse animation :)

haha how cool is that!? could you include a gif exporter as well? That would be so awesome ;) I'll send you an e-mail later with some ideas! Would be cool if you can include them.

Hey, thanks for that post! Have you checked out Looks very promising, but there is not release set for it...

I'm totally new to homebrew stuff on the DS and would like to know what components you need in order to install the programm.

Can you leave a comment on here or email me about that? I'd really appreciate it!

Jean-Denis Haas said...

Nevermind, I did some research and got everything to work. Animanatee is indeed awesome!!
