Re: ??? animation software best for me
Since this is an Adobe Flash topic board I feel that someone should mention Flash Pro. as a solution. With the tool kit available with this software you can author across the full range of platforms and that includes smartphones using the Flash player, Air and java script frame work. This is an expensive piece of software that can export movies, animations, integrate to html 5, do 3D stage rendering and also integrate with XML to all other Adobe products like Dreamweaver and InDesign.
Flash does much more than make animations and would be overkill for your application and in my opinion have a look at a suggestion made earlier that of Toon Boom Studio for about $200 still expensive but very good quality product. If that product is also overkill why not look at Anime Studio Debut 8 as this is a lot cheaper and is more suited to a hobbyist.
Design is thinking made visual.
