New to Animation but not to Art

Super excited to finally have a computer that will run some of the animation programs that I have wanted to play with for a while. I have a new Imac. Unfortunately I cant get synfig to install properly so that I can open it. I know that is for a different section and I will start a topic in the right place. But I am super excited to try vector animation. I have a little background in stop motion and standard 2d animation. I have a bachelors degree in studio art and I am excited to give this a shot!!!
