Fedora 28 : The Spin tool for 2D animation.

The spine is a 2D skeletal animation tool for your video games.
This tool comes with features to building great looking animations.
Spine exports animation data in its own, documented JSON and binary formats.
You can export animated GIFs, PNG or JPEG image sequences and AVI or QuickTime video.
I install the trial version into my Fedora 28 distro easy.
First, you need to download it and unarchive from the official website.
The next step will start with this command:
[mythcat@desk ~]$ cd SpineTrial/
