Animated Sprite Run Cycle

Animated Joe, a character design I had made a while back, decided to inject the life by animating a run cycle Gif style! in photoshop, what a painful process, someone needs to write an animator friendly plugin that allows frame jumping, onion skinning in photoshop. left and right arrow keys need to change layers ( frame stepping ), then the layers before and after are set to 20% opacity. ( onion skinned ). adding new layers automatically adds them as new frames.
