Are there any graphical tools to create and edit animated SVG images? Inkscape is great, but it does everything except animation. I created an image in Inkscape, then manually edited the XML to add animation properties; and this gave me what I wanted, but for slightly more complicated designs it can be very tedious.

You might want to have a look at Synfig. When I needed to make something in this line, used SVG frames, and editing the xml, as you did.

Not free, but cheap, have a look at Koolmoves .It has svg export. I like the tool. (Anyway, consider other exports, like SWF or HTML 5, more future-proof, and better supported in available editors. Disregard this if you totally need svg export.)
