Toon-Boom-150

Toon Boom Animation has announced the release of Toon Boom Harmony 10 at SIGGRAPH 2012 in Los Angeles.

The new version of the animation software delivers all the benefits that a 64-bit engine brings to your hardware, namely overall enhanced performance, a much faster user interface and interactive playback, as well as the ability to render projects and images in 2K, 4K, 8K and more.

In addition, the 64-bit engine amplifies Harmony’s unique capabilities related to pencil line technology with textures, deformation tools, particles and 2D-3D integration.

New features include:

  • Racing Engine: Benefit from a powerful 64-bit engine, driving enhancements in speed, performance and handling.
  • Go Further: Take advantage of all the available memory on your system. The new engine powers the ability to go further than ever before. Render high definition projects, as well as high quality images, in 2K, 4K, 8K, and more.
  • Real-Time Maneuvering: Experience the advantages when handling the software directly, with both a faster user interface and interactive playback. See these improvements when working with very simple, or very complex, scenes with character rigs and deformation.
  • Turbo-charged: Experience the benefits of 64-bit when compositing and rendering special effects. Take advantage of the multi-thread technology and rendering improvements to export faster and more elaborate scenes. Notice the difference when exporting large bitmaps, gradients, and complex backgrounds. Output very sophisticated scenes with particles, complex effects, as well as 2D-3D integration.

“SIGGRAPH being one of the most important technology conferences in the industry, we felt it was the best event to unveil Harmony 10 and showcase its leading-edge features to all attendees,” said Joan Vogelsang, President and Chief Executive Officer at Toon Boom.

A world tour to promote Harmony 10 will be launched in the fall of 2012, covering key cities in North America, South America, Europe and Asia. Dates and locations will be published on toonboom.com.
