Toon Boom Animate 3 and Animate Pro 3 for the animation style of your choice

Toon Boom Announcing Animate 3 and Animate Pro 3

Toon Boom Animate 3 and Toon Boom Animate Pro 3 are the next generation of digital content tools. Animate 3 is ideal for frame-by-frame animation while Animate Pro 3 sets the standard for Cut-out rigging animation.

Here are some of the features you will see in the new 64 bit Toon Boom Animate 3 and Toon Boom Animate Pro 3

Touch gestures when you use tablets we now support two-finger, zoom, rotate and scale. Interface enhancements and cut-out effects are just part of the new versions.
True Pencil - draw with True Pencil, a pencil line with variable thickness that supports pressure sensitivity. Draw clean lines with the pencil and have the ability to modify the lines easily. You can apply the style across hundreds of drawings. Incorporate texture on your lines for cool effects.
Texture Brushes - draw with texture brushes using the Brush tool. Take advantage of this to do rough drawings just like you would on paper, simulating that pencil-on-paper feeling.
Tool Presets Toolbar - save frequently used brushes or pencils so you can quickly go back to those preferences.

In Animate Pro 3 we have our tried and tested Bone Deform –  Bring your cut-out characters to the next level by adding deformers to bend drawings around bones and articulations. Apply deform to vector drawings, textures, or imported bitmaps.

  1. 2 questions: Will Toonboom Animate 3 still have the puppet, cut out and character rigging features that it has in Animate 2? Upon reading “Animate 3 is ideal for frame-by-frame animation while Animate Pro 3 sets the standard for Cut-out rigging animation”, I’m left to wonder if the current capabilites of Animate 2 will not be present in Animate 3. Question number 2: Will the pressure sensitivity issues be fixed in Animate 3 for the new 24 HD cintiqs?

    • Hello Andrea, I asked the product manager about your questions and here is the reply which I received.
      Animate 3 is an improvement upon Animate 2, so it does still contain all the same features as Animate 2. When we made the new versions, we segmented them in this way, because the improvements in Animate were all geared towards Frame-by-frame. Also, you can make a much more sophisticated cut-out character using Animate Pro, particularly with the new Bone tool.
      Pressure Sensitivity is run by the tablet drivers, so if you experience issues with your Cintiq, please contact support.
      I hope this answers your questions. Best regards, Peter.

      • Thanks for the response Peter. As far as the pressure sensitivity issue, I have been in touch with Toonboom support and we have already done two remote sessions and my problem was unsolvable. I was informed by the Toonboom support team that Animate 3 would fix the pressure sensitivity compatibility issues for 24 HD cintiqs. I hope it does get fixed. It will be affecting more and more users as the 24 HD cintiq is the new model.

  3. Hello
    I am just beginning to learn how to use toon boom, but i already have a problem, because when i draw a line, i can’t see the line i’m drawing until i finish touching my tablet. But there’s nothing about it on the tutorials, where i see how the line is appearing as is being drawn.
    I would really appreciate if someone tell me what should i do.
