I did a terrible job this week of describing my pick, so I’m hoping a picture is worth a thousand words. My pick was for a live animation/graphics app for Macs that allows some amazing effects to be created. Called eMotion , best results are to be had by using a graphics tablet (like Ian’s Bamboo Fun), but you can use a Wii remote or, in my case, the standard trackpad or mouse.
The app is a little buggy, and the interface isn’t very intuitive, but with a little practice you can get some quite pleasing results. I’d have had better results I’m sure with a pen and tablet, but you’ll get a bit of an idea of what’s possible from the video below.
