Toon Boom Animation announced today the release of Toon Boom Studio V3, the latest version of its popular solution for paperless cut-out animation Enhanced features include new text and transform tools, and improvements in lip synching. In addition, a simplified user interface combines the Drawing and Sceneplanning modes.
The updated free transform tool enables users to apply any combinations of scaling, rotation and skewing to animate faster. Users can also add text for effective communication in web presentations, comic strips and other projects. Automated lip sync tools allow for fast sound track synchronization, while improved sound scrubbing enables accurate adjustments to the synchronization.
Toon Boom Studio V3 users can animate with key frames and use interpolation to create animation faster, while cell-swapping and templates promise to further speed production along. The library allows drawings, animation cycles and motions to be saved for reuse, while the timeline facilitates layer organization, timing, and motion path attachment. In addition, the 3D space and camera make it easy to create dollys, trucks, zooms and other camera moves.
