This might be tied up a bit because of Greg's jury duty, but it looks like in the next two weeks or so we'll be getting a second iStopMotion setup in D-9 and an ink & paint system in G-50. The ink & paint system will be running a program called CTP that's designed for television production with drawn animation. You can find information on it at www.cratersoftware.com . I used it for pencil tests and timing on Utica Cartoon, it's a good program.
Those were the two things I thought we needed immediately. So, I think I'll have some budget for next semester - what do you think the department needs most?
