Then get your disc at the ready. Or, if you prefer, get your disc button at the ready.
No guarantee that chucking pins at Programs will shatter themâ€“ at best, theyâ€™ll get a pin-prick.

A 2D animator’s best friend– their animation disc– is quite a versatile tool.
One can use it as a pillow…
One can use it to soften the sun.
One can use it as a tray on which to eat…
Or, more than anything, one can bring flat drawings to LIFE with the help of its pegbars and smooth, semi-opaque surface! (All the while, losing sleep, not getting outside to see the sun, and forgetting to eat).
You and I live a full 24 frames a second. We may even think every action in 24 frames a second! 2D is alive and will never die so long as our friend, the animation disc, is around.
(Which isn’t to say that 2D is impossible through computers… But the satisfaction of bringing paper to life is unrivaled!)
Consider yourself a king of the arcade?
Do you exchange your pennies for quarters at the bank?
Or would you consider throwing an all-Atari pizza party?
Perhaps the sight of these buttons induced oldschool gamer flashbacks.
In the event that any of the above statements apply to you, look no further: you’ve found the button set designated for you!
Hey all you animators that just took off for home and plan on working on your films but don’t have fancypants desks that lift up at angles! This one’s for YOU!
I figured I wanted to animate and clean up in comfort, so I scavenged around and found a backing to an 18×24″ Biggie pad that was sitting around, waiting to become useful. I came up with this contraption, which requires no more than said piece of cardboard (non-corrugated, this is really tough stuff!), a box-cutting knife, packing and duct tape (though you could probably get away with just good ol’ duct tape).
That should be it! You’ll work with the entire “contraption” pushed up against a wall so it doesn’t slip away, though I’m sure you could tape it down to a desk instead. There’s plenty of room for a desk lamp to be used as a backlight as well, which also helps weight down the entire setup.
Improve on it as you wish; this is the first thing that popped into my head and it’s working so far (though I’m only on day 1 with it!) Feel free to post comments and suggestions– I hope the instructions are clear!
