There has been curiosity within me that I should be able to create some games of my own,animation,short movies without coding because coding requires lot of hard work and time. It’s now easy to create 2D-3D animation,creating games and movies easily by drag and drop too.
There are various new open source software’s available for Linux,Windows,MAC etc to create games,animations like one of the most famous is scratch project which is developed for kids aging 8 to 16 years for utilizing their creative minds for developing games and animations. Though it is for children between 8 to 16 it has gain rapid popularity among all age groups. Just install Scratch and start using it. More details for the Scratch can be found on https://scratch.mit.edu.
Other softwares which has impressed me are Stencyl, Pencil,Tupi and one of the best is Synfig Studio for advanced 2D animation and drawing program. You can also create a movie using still images using ffmpeg. I would take another post dedicated to ffmpeg which would have more details of it’s usage soon.
For 3D modelling and rendering there are various softwares like Blender, Ayam,Art of Illusion,K-3D,MakeHuman being few of the famous ones.
Feel free to comment or any queries.
