GAP is a collection of GIMP plugins that make it possible to create animations as sequences of single frames. The result can be saved as animated GIF, AVI or MPEG file (external libraries are used for this).

Hi everyone, I plan to try to do some simple cartoon animations and wonder which tool should I use. I prefer free tools and as I googled a bit I found Gimp has an extension named GAP, besides I found Pencil also as recomended tool for making animations. I'm quite familiar with Gimp, but still a begginer in animations, so what tool would you suggest I should try? What are your experiences?
I tried running gimp and nothing happened, so I tried opening a .png file with gimp. Still nothing. When I ran gimp in terminal by typing "gimp" the terminal spat this at me. "gimp: error while loading shared libraries: libgegl-0.0.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory" I'm semi-new to Ubuntu, plus I'm only 12, so I have no clue how to fix this.
GIMP 2.6.9 is released. For newbies, GIMP is the GNU Image Manipulation Program. As you can infer from the name, GIMP is completely open source and is also free as in free beer. GIMP is pitched as the open source alternative for Adobe Photoshop. GIMP is cross platform and yes, GIMP has a Windows version also.
Following on from falldown's GIMP tutorial on a glass text effect, I've used the method to produce some effects for a GIMP splash screen.If you d/l the image, resize it to whatever you want, and put it in /user/.gimp-2.x/splashes (create the directory if it doesn't exist). GIMP will pick a file at random to display at startup
