MyToons.com Joins Forces with Google to Release MyToons Live
The online animation community MyToons.com recently released MyToons Live, a plugin that extends the site’s features to Google Earth.
MyToons Live uses Google Earth to graphically represent the location of MyToons.com members, contributers and fans all over the world.
By pin-pointing each user’s location with a beam of light on the Google Earth map, MyToons Live allows anyone with the plugin to click on any entry and check out what sort of animations are being done in any region of the world.
The MyToons Live plugin expands on the community and social networking features of MyToons.com. MyToons.com, started in the Spring of 2007, is a free-to-join community of a animators and animation enthusiasts both professional and amateur where anyone can share their creations with other animation fans, make friends, and tag favourite videos.
MyToons.com is also designed to allow HD formatted animations to be uploaded and played. This makes it the first site to offer HD animation uploads, making it one of the most versatile platforms for uploading, sharing and viewing animations from around the globe.
I’ve only taken a quick browse through some of the animations on MyToons, but some pretty neat stuff can be found right away. I have no idea what Mama Luchetti is, but if the commercials for it are any indicator, I love it. MyToons has some very entertaining, well-crafted animations on it, so whether or not you plan on becoming the next Walt Disney in the near future, you can always check it out for some quick fun.
Signing up for a MyToons account is free, and you can check it out here.
