Animator Pro: Classic Software in a Modern Age

Animator Pro A.K.A.

Ani Pro, (a.k.a. Autodesk Animator) is a 256 color paint and animation package for MSDOS. It was popular in the early to mid 1990’s for game art, online animation and occasional TV productions.

Originally released in 1989 by Autodesk, and licensed from Yost Group, Ani Pro was created by Peter Kennard, Gary Yost and Jim Kent. Jim Kent kept copyrights to the source code, thus allowing him to grant me permission to make it available to you here. For my part, I wish to do my best to preserve and document this tiny bit of significant computer history, promote the usefulness of this program and hopefully improve and modify it for future and current users, many of whom still find it very useful and fun.

Thanks for your visit,
