TVPaint is Great!
Aaron's animation software of preference is called TVPaint. It's awesome software and in Aaron's opinion is the closest thing to animating on paper. In fact he actually prefers it to paper these days. (Shhhh!)
If you are interested in learning more about TVPaint, Aaron has a playlist of FREE videos on his YouTube Channel here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLnwHSDbcd45L3roriNzDcrsHJWt-Lzi-D - where he walks you through how to use the software.
As of the date of this post, Annual Members to the website get a discount code emailed to them after signing up. It's good for up to 37% off TVPaint. If you get the pro version than the savings on the software actually pays for the membership. Win, Win!
What About Other Software? ToonBoom, Harmony, Krita, Adobe Animate (flash), etc.?
The truth is that any software has pros & cons. Aaron has not tried all of these so he can not say that he recommends them. There are many professional animators in the industry that use these tools.
This is why the majority of the courses on our website are NOT software specific. (Including animation) - You can use whatever software you like. Even pencil & paper!
