Toon Boom Testing
I downloaded the Personal Training Edition of Toon Booms new Animate package. There's this watermark they stamp everything with but other than that it's a fully functional program. I was coming onto it cold with no previous experience and did this very simple crappy four drawing run cycle, tossed it onto a background and added a camera move. It's pretty easy and seems to have better drawing features, (not as good as TVPaint), than Flash and impressive multiplane background capabilities. You can also fill areas on a character with textures and do some nice drop shadows and things. I'm really liking it so far.
