This thread on Nortel learning:


quote: " I followed with a conversation on the #squeak irc channel. Our 
conclusion: while it may be "possible" to generate 2D animations with Squeak, 
the conceptual differences between Squeak and flash are enormous, and this is 
not a practical option for our illustrator, Phi.

To give you an idea of the kind work Phi does, take a look at this. If anyone 
knows of example animations made with eToys that look as good as what Phi did 
here, please let us know."

reminded me of my wish that Squeak be used instead of Flash :) in addition to 
it being so nice for exploring..

That aside, I think the person who made the comment is right - I do not think 
Squeak can be used to create animations shown in there, at least I do not 
know how to. Does anyone have enough experience with Scratch to comment that 
perhaps Scratch could be used to create animations similar to those with 
equivalent or lower effort?

Thanks Milan
