Anime Studio Pro 9 ships, limited time $50 discount
Have you ever watched South Park and thought, “Any fool can do that!” Well, here is the application to prove the point — Anime Studio Pro 9 is here and delivers fast, automagical ways to animate that can vastly reduce the time needed to bring the story, your story to life.
Anime Studio Pro 9, as well as Anime Studio Debut, is now available, packing significant new features and improvements. Most notable is the new Bone Rigging feature, which automates animation versus the old frame-by-frame method.
“Anime Studio is your complete animation program for creating 2D movies, cartoons, anime and cut out animations,” writes Smith-Micro of the new release. “Create your own desktop animated shorts in the style of SouthParkStudios.com and JibJab.com or use it to produce animations for film, video or streaming over the web.”
New feature short list:
• Bone Rigging — A fast and efficient alternative to tedious frame-by-frame animation
• Revolutionary Smart Bones — An incredible feature that reduces or entirely removes distortion around your character’s joints, specifically around knees and elbows
• Import Photoshop — With all layers intact. Changes made in Photoshop instantly appear in the imported file in Anime Studio, allowing you to continually refine your Photoshop document
• Real Time Media Connection — Proautomatically updates image, movie and audio files in your imported Anime Studio files when edited in an external program
