This project looks like what we have been waiting for. A real simple way to animate traditionally on a Cintiq or tablet and feel like its the old animation disk, pencil and paper.
This team from Denmark is working on Animation Paper, a new program to animate the traditional way with an X-Sheet and digital turntable, you can work just like on the old desks we used to use. I don’t know about you but to me that sounds like heaven, especially after seeing “Duet” by Glen Keane (see post from 6-27-14).
I think that we all, who are interested in traditional animation, should pledge to make this program a reality, support the people who are trying so hard to help keep 2D animation alive. So check out the link and pledge.
