Chapter 5. 2-D Tools > Keyframe Animation and Compositing

Keyframe Animation and Compositing

Keyframe animation programs combine the convenience of 3-D animation software—where you simply set keyframes for objects and let the software do the inbetweening—and the graphical elegance and compositing prowess of a page-layout or high-end paint program.

ObjectDancer

PaceWorks' Object Dancer is Macintosh software that specializes in adding rhythm to 2-D animation by means of a deceptively simple device. The software lets you copy animation information—timing and motion—from one object to another and then offset the timing, so that different objects move with the same motion and timing, but in sequence. This feature is what really sets Object Dancer apart from other animation tools, such as Adobe After Effects. Object Dancer exports animation as GIFs, QuickTime movies, and Java applets.
