Toon Boom Animate 2 Review

Link via Digital Arts

Toon Boom Animate 2Beyond the usual performance enhancements and bug fixes, the primary new features of version 2 include the smart puppet feature which supports forward and inverse kinematics, making it easier to animate a complete character than before. Lip syncing is also available, with an automatic phoneme recognition tool – useful for quick animations, but not 100 per cent reliable by any stretch.

Additional effects and blending modes have been added, allowing output that would have previously required exporting to the likes of After Effects. The obligatory 3D support is here and cameras can also now be attached to objects in the 3D world, allowing interesting new perspectives.

Toon Boom Animate 2 is available at an educational discount price of $270 (download version).
