when I was 4 years old I saw a video by Alan Becker called animator vs animation .I was so confused because I thought it was a game on the computer (witch should have been). But in 4th grade I was 10 years old and we took classes in animation and surprise, we were going to use adobe flash but we only took it 1 hour a week! Can you believe it!? A FLIPPING HOUR A WEEK! Then I find out the school is changing it to wick editor the only soft ware without download or payment necessary.
The way it worked was not the way for me, but it was the only one free to use sadly. There I am in 5th grade 11 years old still mad about the flash incident, but I experienced with pixel art. but that was to basic, but then came piskelapp an online sprite editor and an app for mobile , I used the computer since I can't copy and paste frames or pictures on mobile. OK I'm getting off topic, in 2018 I'm still twelve but will soon be 13, I'm on the computer using wick trying to get use to the problems but it is not working that well, so I searched up adobe flash but now it's called adobe animate.. But I see that you have to pay for it, ok that's fine...wait...you have to constantly pay to continue using flash, $49 for a year...fine but...why? Why have to pay monthly to keep using it? Why not just pay a full price so you can use it whenever you WANT? for example: say the software cost $150, oh ok I have enough money, pay to download it, ok now I can start animating, this might take 2 years, yes I finished it, that's all we need...A FULL PRICE!!! is that so hard ADOBE!? no wonder why people use toon boom harmony more than adobe. and it go's for all adobe softwares like, adobe photoshop, adobe creative cloud, adobe Acrobat pro, adobe air, Even adobe flash player needs to be paid for if you uninstall it.
