Flashcii is a tool for creating ascii animations. Flaschii converts image files into ascii art, and provides a Flash-inspired interface for building animated sequences. Windows 2000 or Windows XP.

maybe of limited use and appeal, but neat in a geek way. I'm old enough to remember how great it was to write a basic program on my school's DEC PDP-11 system to have it print out a poster of a naked woman on greenbar.

In the days before Cinemax, that was a pretty racey thing.

I love this. But no Mac version means I'm out of luck. Anyone have any macish info, links or hints (other than buy a pc...)

Look, not to diss flashcii, but is it really ASCII art? These are computer generated blobs of data, not really crafting art using the 'lines' available from ASCII.

These are pretty much equivalent to 48x48 resolution videos, not ASCII art.

ObDisclaimer: I think of myself as an ASCII artist.

And how is that working out for you?
