    Hi all,

    I'm currently looking for an intuitive 2D animation plugin, I've searched a bit on my own and found three pretty cool tools:

    EasyMotion2D
    http://forum.unity3d.com/threads/108648-EasyMotion2D-Make-2D-Skeleton-Animation-in-Unity3D-easily.-RELEASED

    Umotion 2D
    http://forum.unity3d.com/threads/90341-Umotion-2D-Easily-Create-2D-Animation-for-Unity

    Smooth Moves
    http://forum.unity3d.com/threads/124211-Smooth-Moves-2D-Skeletal-Animation

    I'd like to create skeleton 2D animations, in order to switch sprites and make the animations production lighter... Ideally, I'll use this tool to animate the GUI.

    If someone had something to mention about these tools, feedback, advices or whatever, it would be really nice and helpful.

    Thanks in advance!

    Hello,
    I just see your post and I am wondering the exact same thing about the software I should use for our production. I definitely want to have the inverse kinematic on the 2D bones.
    Which did you finally choose?

    Thanks,

    We just bought Puppet2D, which seems pretty interesting!

    I have to say that this tool is the best :

    ANIME STUDIO
