Tupi: An Open/Free 2D Animation Software based on usability and community values. Every human is an artist! Everybody is welcome! 🙂
Tupi is a project about 2D animation art and freedom. Traditionally, big software corporations like Adobe develop software, becoming the industry standard for artists—from big companies to independent animators.
Once upon a time at Latinoware 2011

Tupí: Magia 2D
Tupi is a free software/open source tool focused on the creation of vector animation in two dimensions (2D).
The main goal of this project is to provide an easy-to-use application for people of all ages interested in 2D animation design, using different techniques (cuts, stop motion, etc) from a friendly environment.
The final result of the works can be exported either into video files (OGV, AVI, MPEG, MOV, etc) or image arrays, depending on the user’s interest.
