Toon Boom Animation has unveiled its new Harmony solution at MIP-TV.
The company, which was demonstrating the software at its booth at the trade show, described the new solution as follows:
- Draw the Line Between Flash and a True Animation Pipeline: Harmony delivers capabilities that simply did not exist before. Starting with MagicBrush, the ability to draw with pencil lines supporting textures, then on to FlexiBone, the ability to deform images and drawings over a period of time using advanced bone animation features, Effects Inside, the ability to access built-in particle effects and dozens of other effects, and finally, 2D-3D Integration, the ability to import and modify 3D assets within Harmony as well as transform elements on all 3 axes. As the main animation production backbone, Harmony offers full artistic freedom with ease of use and total control.
- Draw the Line Between The Past and Now: Building upon its solid foundation in traditional animation, Harmony skyrockets your animation styles to untapped creative ground, offering mind-blowing digital capabilities to creators. By adopting Harmony, studios join a vibrant community in which Toon Boom acts as the glue to connect and facilitate introductions.
- Draw the Bottom Line: With its impressive track record and field-proven efficiency, Harmony is the industry standard for animation production. As a studio owner or artist, relying on a technology that takes you on a growth path makes pure business sense. Harmony can be set as a scalable pipeline to reflect your needs and production volume. In addition, Toon Boom offers flexible options to make Harmony available to studios of any size: you can choose to lease, work on a project-base or purchase.
“Studios and animators will be very impressed, especially the Flash studios who will see in this latest version, an opportunity to jump the fence and join the Toon Boom community,” said Joan Vogelesang, president and CEO of Toon Boom Animation.
