Have you ever animated using the Photoshop timeline? It’s amazing what can be done there, even though the timeline could you some tweaks. I’ve been preparing an open letter to Adobe requesting some improvements. Here is the dropbox link Anyone you know there would be open to submitting to the developers? Let me know what you think and how this would fit into your TVPaint pipeline. Just trying to find ways for more people to afford a decent animation tool and not break the bank…thanks!
