    I currently use Paint Tool Sai for drawing item art, which is a great little program but it has no animation features (as far as i'm aware!) Problem is I have a few avatars to make and it's frustrating not being able to animate them.

    Does anyone know of a basic animation program I could perhaps download for free? (I use Windows 7) I would only be animating text or something very simple. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks, Rach x

    For free?

    Errr...
    I know you can use GIMP.


    And there's an online animation program called DoInk (http://www.doink.com)

    GIMP is probably one of the best free tools to use for what you need. :)
