Animate 3 is ideal for frame-by-frame animation while Animate Pro 3 sets the standard for cut-out rigging animation.
Check out the What’s New video here:
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.
Content Integration – such as Importing Photoshop, Flash, Illustrator, SWF and Quicktime Movie
Bone Deform – In Animate Pro 3 Your cut-out characters benefit by adding deformers to bend drawings around bones and articulations. Apply deform to vector drawings, textures, or imported bitmaps.
Interface enhancements – designed to simplify the workflow and streamline the animation process.
