Gimp providing drawings to video animation
Hello,

I would like to try creating an animation like this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kcIxD070LJg - originally made through Apple Keynote Animation).

a) Could anyone inform if Gimp is able to give me tools to create similar still drawings/images? Could other software as Inkscape be better to this kind of drawing ? (I am not familiarized with both yet).

b) If yes, does anyone know any tutorial that approaches more directly this style of drawings/images?

c) From sequence of still images created in Gimp I intend to use video editing software (Sony Vegas) to animate them. Actually I don’t know whether it is the best way to animate the images. So, if someone has any tip about this other matter, I would appreciate as well.

Thanks in advance,

Cadu

I think Gimp is better suited than Inkscape for this. There is a "Gimp Animation Package" (aka GAP) that adds many useful things for animations.

Many tanks for this valuable tip. I already installed Gimp + GAP and there will be much to learn! Do you know what is the "animation" format generated by Gimp (flv. etc.)? Could Gimp animation be recorded in anyway to be insert in video editing software (Vegas)? Best, Cadu

Gimp produces mostly animated GIFs. If you are really in video stuff, video software may be more adequate.
