What is EZtoon?
EZtoon is a free animating software were you draw each frame over and over again.

Pros And Cons
Pros
Easy to animate 3d
Free
No Glitches
Easy to use

Cons
Have to draw over and over again
Easy to stuff up

So now you know the Ups and Downs of EZtoon. So lets get downloading!!
Click To Download Easytoon
Once you are there click on the link under Easytoon 1.9.8

Animating
Some people draw their frames and click insert frame and then find out that it plays backwards. To avoid this you draw what you want in your frame and the press the right arrow button on your keyboard.

Easing
Some people will comment on your animations and say "Nice animation but you need to ease more" So what is easing? Well, easing is when you progress from a slow speed and then go into a faster speed. An example would be a car gaining speed. It doesnt magicaly go from 0 kmph to 60 kmph. It has to go through 1, 2, 3, 4.. kmph.
Watch the difference:
Eased
Un eased
To make it eased make the object you move gain speed while it moves.

Choppyness
Choppyness is when your animation lacks the right amount of frames and goes from one spot and then apears far away. An example is teleporting and walking. Teleporting goes from one place to the other but walking is going through all the other stages.
Watch the difference:
Choppy
Not Choppy
To prevent this add more frames in the middle

Shakyness
Shakyness is when your animation looks like it is vibrating. an example would be a man walking foward and then a man walking foward while getting electrecuted.
Watch the difference:
Shaky
Not Shaky
To prevent this try keeping the object you move aligned with the onionskin and not move massive distances.
