      Hey Guys,

      Myself and a friend are developing a side-scrolling 2D platform game using C# and XNA.

      Ive got a fairly good grasp of 2D Keyframe Animation, but im keep loosing track when searching for good tools to implement into a game of this nature.

      Also, wondering about the possibilites of importing 3d animations onto a 2d stage, for characters etc..

      Im an emtpy whiteboard in terms of this stuff, so please grab a marker if you have any ideas in this area.

      Thanks in advance all.

      Not an artist – But Gale is very good. Even programmers can use it :).

      thxn guys.

      Downloading gale now, it looks quite good from the write ups ive just seen.

      Im well used to flash at the moment, but are u telling me i can export flash anim’s and these can be exported into a game engine?

      I guess my issue then is with the importing of graphics into the game rather than the creation of the graphics themselves.

      I don’t think you can import flash anims into what you are planning to do, but I could be wrong, maybe someone else here who is more informed can answer this question for you.

      What I was suggesting was to export your Flash animations as Gifs, PNG’s or BMP sequences or what ever format you decide/need to use.

      This method enables you to have the freedom to animate using the flash environment and export the results into a usable format.

      Have a look at Aliean Hominid. It was originally a flash game which they ported over to Playstation. It’ll give you a good indication of what Flash can do.
