A couple of people at the DIWO takedown asked me about animation Free
Software but I couldn't remember the details.

I've just been reminded by this - http://morevnaproject.org/  ;-)

So the biggies for animation on GNU/Linux are -

http://www.synfig.org/ - 2d animation package.

http://blender.org/ - 3d animation. Compositing and timeline editing for
2d as well.

And there's also -

http://jahshaka.org/ - After-effects equivalent

http://www.cinepaint.org/ - Retouching software used in professional movie

http://www.aqsis.org/ - Renderman (Pixar's renderer) free software

If anyone knows of any packages I've missed do say!

- Rob.
