An interesting animation blog

Todor Imreorov is undertaking a university animation degree and blogging about it, with much to say about learning the latest in mocap and compositing. His explaination of his 2D vector workflow (in Inkscape) may help some of those CrazyTalk Animator people who are wrestling with the deeply unintuitive nature of vector drawing for character/cartoon work. At the end he ponders some of the reasons why wizards with Photoshop or Painter shun drawing with vector software, despite the many obvious advantages of scalable compartmentalised drawings. Of course, if only we had a Photoshop plugin that smoothed out shaky hand-drawn curved lines the instant we drew them, just like vector software does… then I imagine we could just make really big Photoshop 5000px bitmap drawings and run them through vectorisation conversion utilities like Vector Magic.
