- Animation software
There might be something from these guys
The animate pro software is pricey but they have some simplier kids stuff that might be of use? I have only had a play with the animate pro software and it was pretty easy and powerful to use (work gets in the way!) so the kids stuff should be good.

My 14 year old daughter is really enjoying animating stuff (mainly Manga) using all sorts of freeware. Does anyone have a view on a good 2-D animation package (pref for PC, the MAC ANIME one looks great but means I’ll lose use of my MAC!) that’s not CS6 and a million quid?Posted 4 years ago
Right having had a discussion with said teenager, it now appears she wants to develop in flash. Dead Platform I say as a respected IT professional of 20+ years. I know nothing apparently 😉 I can get Adobe Flash Pro (it’s not ont the CS cloud bundle) for about £130 off ebay which is still a bit HOW MUCH.
But I guess if it’s flash then it’s going to be adobe. Oh I’m being told it does HTML as well. So that’s okay then 😉Posted 4 years ago
The other software you get is bloody awesome BTW. I imagine Illustrator could be useful for your daughter but I use Photoshop, Premiere and Lightroom all the time too and they’re superb pieces of software. Reasonable learning curve involved – there’s lots of tutorial videos etc on ‘Adobe TV’ on their website that are quite useful.
Not sure about the others but with Lightroom you can definitely use your license for two machines. 😉Posted 4 years agofishaMember
With the creative cloud subscription, you can install the software on 2 different machines as long as your basically just using one at time. It is talked about on the Adobe help pages.
For example, I have the subscription, and up until recently was using a Windows 7 PC. I’ve just changed to a Mac, went to the Adobe site, logged in and downloaded CS6 stuff onto the iMac. No questions assked other than logging in to begin with.
I could swap between using the software on either machine and it never questioned it.
If you can get the education pricing for creative cloud, its a brilliant deal imho. I think its £22 / month for me.Posted 4 years ago
