I removed the OPEN SOURCE part - I miss-read the description, it was Microsoft's sharing some technology with a college to create the program
I just installed GIMP - it does look a bit intimidating to get use to - obviously it is feature rich, so I'll have plenty to do with this one.
BTW - I'm starting to play with plasticine (this is for the general public) I have a few bee projects I'd like to animate myself. My camera and available software really makes this project viable, albeit time consuming. But I have lots of spare time during my slow work times when I could devote a few hundred frames at a time :)
Thanks for this GIMP - I know how it gets its name - I feel like a gimp when looking at all the windows that popped up
