    Hi,

    Can anyone recommend me good animation programs. I also mean in terms of animating the UI and buttons as I only have Photoshop. I don't really mind the price but I would prefer if it came with a trial :D However if I am able to make the kind of animations for buttons used in The Pit by Buildbox in Photoshop it would be grate to help me out and show me some tutorials as I tried looking on YouTube but no luck :(

    Thanks!

    Here you go http://www.brashmonkey.com/spriter.htm
    Spriter is used for character animations. As for animating buttons, you can do that in photoshop with the timeline window and using scale or distort.

    Just use Buildbox 2. The buttons from The Pit are animated directly in BB2. If not and you want something better than PS then use After Effects which you also can use to animate characters. Spriter Pro is definitely a good option too for character animation. I actually bought it a few weeks ago but didn't had the time to check it out.

    Spine 2D, Spriter Pro ... These two are Easy to use and Learn.
    If you want more in depth stuff, Anime Studio Pro is one to check out.
