5 Easy-to-Use Animation Tools for Beginners

Mashable- Whether you're producing a title card for your new company, or just looking to wow your co-workers with a dazzling presentation on the dangers of hydraulic fracking, a little animation is never a bad idea. Things are more interesting when there's a little flare involved, right? (Services, Software, Web)

I liked all tools mentioned in the list, but liked Wideo very much because its available for free and who doesn't like freeware ;)

i remember using freeware called anim8or about 10 years back.
seemed good enough as an introduction to animation and 3d modeling.

not sure if the project is still active though.

I'm in the process of teaching myself ToonBoom Animate through the video tutorials on their site and the resources on their forums. It's definitely not a "simplistic" kind of program, but it seems like ToonBoom, Flash, and Maya are the industry standard programs used for animations. I'm an audio guy, and I'm versed in many of the different industry standard digital audio workstations out there, so transitioning to animation is quite different and definitely a challenge, but I'm enjoying learning it and it's an asset I'll need to know as I'm creating my own web comic and cartoon series.
