Can anyone suggest a good (and easy to use) freeware for creating animations in Windows? I was looking at the Pencil mentioned in a similar question, but it seems its development has stopped. In addition, I'd like to export the output animations directly in the GIF or FLV format rather than SWF or QuickTime. I know it's possible to export PNGs from the Pencil and put them together with the other tool, but I would appreciate this feature. I'm looking for something like Animation Shop, but freeware.
Thanks a lot.
