they dumped the linux version, so I dumped them.
Its also not very good for frame by frame animation. I use tvpaint instead.
? You use Construct, do you not? Construct is Windows only as well.
Frame by frame works quite well now in AS, although TVpaint and Anime Studio are very different animation apps, and can't really be compared - I see them more as complementary (the makers of "Song of the Sea" used both in their production for different segments and purposes).
And you fail to mention that TVPaint for Linux is only available as the professional edition (1250 euro). Not exactly affordable.
Anyway, I am looking forward to Krita's animation options - it should combine well with Anime Studio and Spriter.
