ABSTRACT
Because most animation tools are complex and time-
consuming to learn and use, most animations today are
created by experts. To help novices create a wide range of
animations quickly, we have developed a general-purpose,
informal, 2D animation sketching system called K-Sketch.
Field studies investigating the needs of animators and
would-be animators helped us collect a library of usage
scenarios for our tool. A novel optimization technique
enabled us to design an interface that is simultaneously fast,
