Animate Pro 2 is the most complete professional animation software, offering superior content creation, animation and compositing toolset for any style of animation, all within a single desktop application.
Chris Georgenes, Art and Animation Director, acclaimed author and owner of the popular Keyframer.com blog had this to say about Animate Pro 2: “I’m loving Toon Boom Animate Pro 2. Every once in a while a tool comes along that you just know you have to learn how to use because it just feels right. As an animator, Animate Pro 2 lives up to its name pure and simple. It’s a tool that oozes the technique of animating because it is developed that way.
As you become comfortable with the Animate Pro workflow it becomes clear that this tool was designed by animators for animators. It boasts features that I always wanted and in some cases wish I had thought of. If you are an animator and have or are thinking of adopting the paperless art of animation, Toon Boom Animate Pro 2 simply can not be ignored.”
