One of the problems with getting started in animation is the cost of getting setup. Free cartoon software can be found out there, but it’s often not as good as if you had spent just a couple of dollars. Even after you find and buy the perfect animation software, it’s pretty imperative that you purchase a drawing tablet, especially for 2D animation.
I spent a good amount of time looking for a drawing tablet to advertise that was affordable, which is how I ended up advertising the $69 Bamboo version on the right. To get started then, would cost about $100: $39 for Flip Boom and $69 for a drawing tablet.
This is a limited offer, which means that Toon Boom likely pre-purchased a number of drawing tablets — so when they’re gone they’re really gone.
Toon Boom realized this price point was keeping many people from trying to make their own cartoons and managed to package their popular Flip Boom animation program with a drawing tablet, a great deal at $49.99.
I’m impressed that they recognized a need for this package deal, I hope many people interested in making their own cartoons are able to take advantage of this offer.
