Toon Boom Animate

Toon Boom has released its latest vector-based animation software, Toon Boom Animate, that includes a variety of tools for content creation, animation, and delivery to audiences. Users can create tradigital and bitmap animations, or combine elements of both. Multiple brush tools, textures, and gradients can be used to further develop particular styles. The software also offers morphing, inverse kinematics, and a set of common special effects for advanced projects.

A multiplane camera allows scenes to be set up in 3D, with a graph editor and controls for object velocity. The user interface is adaptable for individual use, while each tool offers a contextual interface for setting preferences. A wide range of formats can be imported, including MOV, SWF, PSD, AI, and PDF, with export to video in MOV and FLV.

The software package includes an introductory guide, video training, and templates that can be used to learn the functions. Toon Boom Animate is available for Windows XP/Vista or Mac OS X 10.5, and can be purchased from the company for $700.
