Have you tried #Cavalry yet? It's a new and promising #animation software from Mainframe UK. I still have to give it a good try but it's so interesting. Basically it works a lot like #mograph in #c4d but for 2D animations.
It's still in beta but it's free to test.
I haven't had enough time with the beta yet, but Holdframe released a project file for it. School of Motion's newsletter about it said "We were blown away by the simplicity of the project and the complexity of what was possible."
@DanHousch Yeah Cavalry is very promising. Basically it uses the logic on C4D mograph module to make 2D animations. Now thery're even adding a node system (flowchart). It makes animating procedural stuff pretty effortless. Still have to play with it properly, but I will at some point.
mograph.social is a Mastodon server for the motion design community. VFX artists, 3D artists, animators, designers and illustrators with an interest in moving images are all welcome.
