I am working on a simple card game (like SolForge). That game has some pretty simple effects - look glows around cards, etc.
I've looked at the visual resources that SolForge uses and the effects are generally a long list of png images that are played in sequence.
Can anyone recommend software that is used to create these types of effects? For example, I'm assuming that that an artist didn't hand animate every single png in the "glowing smoke" effect that surrounds playable cards.
