Animation movies require many different skills – drawing, designing, coding – and also a deep knowledge of 3D software tools. But don't let these high requirements change your mind: if you're really interested in creating your own animation movies, you may as well start with Xtranormal.

This website features a basic online editor with which you can create very simple animated movies in a really easy way. First, select the background and actors for your great production. Then, all you have to do is drag and drop movie elements (expressions, animations, sounds and more) onto the script. Dialog lines, which the actors can "read" in several languages, are also inserted right away on the script. Whenever you want to see the result so far, simply click on the "Action" button.

Create animation movies with Xtranormal

Xtranormal is chiefly aimed at people with little or no experience in graphic design and animation – among which I count myself. This is why it includes basically everything you need to get you started, from the background landscape to camera angles. More advanced users will find it too limited, especially since Xtranormal doesn't let you upload any kind of content to use in your movies.

The good thing about Xtranormal is that you don't need to sign up in order to use it. You can start creating your movie right away. But if you want to save your work for later or publish your finished movie, you'll need to create a user account. Don't worry, it only takes a couple of minutes and is completely free.

    it is NOT free; you get 200 points and after that you PAY.

    Let me clarify this: the site is currently free. You get a balance of 200 points when you register, but nothing on the site cost any points until further notice.

    Our plan is — once we're comfortably out of the BETA phase — to charge fees for using premium applications, features, and other goodies planned for future release.

    xtranormal.com will always have a basic, free set of options to make animated movies.

    So enjoy!
