Just in time for the Memorial weekend, fanboy favorite Bryan Singer announced...
Digital Video s.r.l.’s Toonz Animation Board 2.0 (The Tab)
This intuitive software for web animation allows you to draw directly into the computer. It also offers a revolutionary approach to handling vectors; instead of grabbing vector points, you can pull or bend a vector by clicking anywhere on an image. The UI comes with four separate rooms (screens) designed for drawing, animating, compositing, and browsing. Features like path, morph, controls, and onionskin go a long way in assisting animators who are willing to take the plunge into the digital world.
The Good News: Moving/copying and manipulating frames have never been easier.
The Wish List: More tutorials are definitely needed.
The Bottom Line: A must have for the animator who wants to take it to the next level.
