a few years ago, I use to love to make animations with Flash MX. Well, now I have the itch to make some animations but I no longer use Windows(now use OpenBSD) and also I've lost my copy of Flash somewhere.. (and no, I don't want to spend a ton of money to buy a new copy)

So now I'm looking for something capable of creating animations that is free and open source. Does anyone know of such a program?

A professional quality open source animation studio. Uses SVG instead of flash and can output to several video formats.

Here's a demo reel: Looks like you can make some pretty awesome stuff with it :) – RPG Master Mar 3 '10 at 1:58

I use Pencil

It's open source, works on mac, windows and linux.

You could always use blender to render 3d animations. Though this will take a fair amount of time to set up as well as to render.

Not really a Flash replacement at all. Flash is 2D. – Sasha Chedygov Mar 3 '10 at 3:42
