Join Dermot O' Connor for an in-depth discussion in this video Animate vs. Flash, part of Toon Boom Animate and Harmony Essential Training.
- The big question many animators and studios…face today is should we keep working with Flash…or switch to something like Animate-Harmony.…Well let's take a look at the pros and cons of each.…One of the great strengths of Flash is…that it's quite easy to learn, it's not…like some animation programs that have…a lot of bells and whistles to it…so you can start learning Flash quite quickly…compared to many other programs.…It has a very wide user base,…for a long time was pretty much the industry…standard for any kind of 2-D flat animation…that you saw on television.…
There's a lot of websites out there…about Flash and how to work with it.…It has actionscript so you can do interactive…projects with it, games and things for mobile.…It has a command system so that you can…write your own plugins for the program…and there are many free commands out there…that are excellent.…You can create quite large sequences…in a single Flash project, so I've just…recently finished working on an animated project…that was up to three minutes long…
