2D software questions

Hi all,
I am looking at getting a 2D vector illustration/animation package. I have looked at a few and wonder what others have experienced. I prefer to actually create the vector artwork as opposed to using a tablet and pen to draw characters,logos, etc... I have used Illustrator but always find myself coming back to iDraw for it shear simplicity and speed. I would consider Flash but it seems a lot of people think it has no future so why learn it. I kind of find that hard to believe thou. So my ideal program would be able to do vector illustration and animation. It would also have a good graph editor and straightforward keyframing system. I have looked at these programs - any advice (cost aside) would be greatly appreciated.

1. Flash
2. Anime Studio Pro 9
3. Toon Boom Studio 7 (not Animate or Animate Pro)

Hey Pesto,

I've recently write an article on 2D animation software and some comparison. I hope you can find some useful info from my post at http://ilearntoanimate.com/low-cost...-for-beginners/

I think 1 year ago, many people started saying Flash will be obsolete, but I can still see that it is alive. Even if it is not going to integrate well with mobile devices, it is still good for vector style video creation. You can still export it out as video format, i.e. mov, avi, etc. Personally I still like Flash so I hope you can give it a try

Good luck!
