Toon Boom Announces Animate 2
Animate 2, a powerful software package that rivals Flash. The second iteration of the software includes full SWF export, better velocity controls and a type tool. The pre-launch price is $549.99, and if you buy now, they’ll give you the first version to use until its’ successor arrives. Here’s some of my favorite Toon Boom animation from recent months:
Um Lugar Comum (A Common Place) from São Paulo-based studio Split Filmes
Water FX from Canadian Chris Graf
I also really like André Ruivo’s Januário e a Guerra.
