What is a good software package for a PC user to do cartoon style animation in

Hi,

I was wondering if anyone knew of a good program (freeware or
shareware) that can do frame by frame animations that I can draw using
graphics tablet and scanner.
Most important feature I want is to be able to draw frame over frame,
For example, I can be drawing frame 02 whilst Frame 01 is still
underneath (but lighter in colour).I this way i can see the movements
I draw relative to the previous frame(s)
Once all the frames have been drawn, be able to save them all as
JPEG's or BMP format into a subdirectory, which I can then import them
into Premiere to animate. I hope this is clear to understand and any
software suggestions would be appreciated.

Thank you

Why not just use Photoshop?

This feature is often referred to as "onion skinning", adding that to your
Google search should help find some results. Don't have much experience
with it myself, I know Macromedia Flash 5 supported it, but it's not ideal
to draw in.

Good luck,

Equinox
