It is best suited for those who want to "liven up" static world of simple computer drawings, add sounds, try out your creativity, ideas and show it to friends and family. With Artoonix you can: - Creat drawings in advanced Artoonix frame editor or simply add and modify objects from your picture files (e.g. JPEG's or animated GIF's). - Animate the drawings and photos using a host of traditional animation tools. - Record multi-track sound from your microphone or insert soundtracks from wav or MP3 audio files. - Export the animation into a high-quality movie file (e.g. into an .avi file with your favourite compression codec - DiVX or Xvid). - Export the animation into an animated GIF file for easy web publishing, e-mailing, using as your mobile phone wallpaper, etc. Traditionally, animation process is associated with rather complex multiple stage process but it is intuitively simple in its basics.
