PRICING: Two minute free account
TUTORIAL: Thorough tutorial in the animaker account.
FINAL COMMENTS: I've only been using this for 2 days, but I must say that I really like it. The free account does limit the availability of some items, but it doesn't seem to limit the functions. And the site allows for uploads of pictures, music, etc. It has a camera function that I have not seen in other programs. This allows for a "movie like" scene with camera shifts. I definitely recommend checking this out.
PRICING: Limited free use. $10 per month for one class. $5 for each additional class. Discounts for full year payment.
FINAL COMMENTS:Very similar to MakeBeliefsComix without the ads.
FINAL COMMENTS: Very simple black and white comic strip generator.
FINAL COMMENTS: The simplest of all animation--stick figures. You can make simple or complicated stick figure animations. Not my thing, but I know that it would attract my son. Probably for younger users or advanced users--if that makes sense.
PRICING: Free Trial
FINAL COMMENTS: I remember when this was free. Now, not so much. Fourteen day trial. It is easy to use and in the grand scheme of things, it isn't that expensive if you have money lying around.
FINAL COMMENTS: This site has a lot of ads. I mean a lot of ads. I'm still seeing ads. A lot of ads. It's kind of limited in what it offers, but you can work around it by creating multiple strips.
PRICING: Free individual account.
FINAL COMMENTS: Simple comic strip creator.
FINAL COMMENTS: TONDOO is my favorite of the comic strip generators. Lots of options. It is somewhat limited in the free version.
FINAL COMMENTS: Simple animation. Site is closely monitored to keep everything school appropriate.
