Looking at the example on tinopeners' website, it looks the kind of thing that Animator could do quite easily - it allows import of draw (and Artworks, I think) files as frames, and offers in-betweening and so on. Of course, your limitation is that you end up with bitmap frames which would then go to GIF, but since GIFs can usually be progressively rendered, and compress losslessly, it shouldn't be too bad. Indeed, GIF compression usually works nicely on cartoon/vector-style graphics, as opposed to more realistic images. Animator can also generate video files (eg. Replay) which could then be MPEG'd, presumably suitable for youtube (although I've never tried uploading).

  • ArtWorks 2.9 set for Wakefield 2009 launch
    The latest version of graphics package ArtWorks is set to be unveiled at this month's Wakefield 2009 show - and will allow PNGs and other bitmaps to be exported with alpha transparency intact. Click on the link with NetSurf, Firefox or some other capable browser to see an illustration of the exported translucency effect. The software will also gain extra features to the editing of text, including smart quotes and automatic ligatures, according to developer Martin Wuerthner.
