"Papa, can you help me create an animation for my school project?" asked my 10-year-old daughter.
“Sure,” I said. “Let's see what software your teacher suggested you use.”
The software that my daughter’s teacher suggested turned out to be an ad-cluttered website that combined several images into an animated GIF. Not exactly the best tool for learning and creating real animation ...
That's how the idea for Animatron was born: a powerful and user-friendly website that allows you to animate right in your browser and collaborate with your friends or colleagues in real time. JetBrains (a company that makes the world’s best developer tools!) liked the idea so much that they funded the project and supported us in many other ways!
Now, a few years later, Animatron has grown into a company of 15 awesome people working hard on redefining the world of animation software by building an entirely new way to create animated and interactive content for the modern web.
