Just for my own interest, I’ve been creating little animations using Illustrator. The animation is essentially generative as its controlled via variables (like stroke and skew) based on a simple mathematic formula. The beginning and end frames are not though, as I consciously design them. All the frames are generated individually unlike Flash animations. This is a bit of a hassle though, so until I write some Illustrator scripts they probably won’t be much longer than 4 seconds because after 99 frames I’m like this (@_@). The next step is to add color and camera fly-throughs in After Effects… when I have the time! Click on the little gifs above to see larger Quicktime movies.
