Toon Boom Technologies Ships Toon Boom Studio v1.0

(July 18, 2001)
Toon Boom Technologies announced the commercial release of Toon Boom Studio v1.0 for Mac and PC. The new software enables artists, advertisers and Web developers to build Web animations. Toon Boom Technologies designed Toon Boom Studio v1.0 with an interface familiar to traditional animators, and features ideal for digital animators.

Toon Boom Studio offers improved drawing accuracy, an automatic lip sync feature, 3D scene planning, and compact Flash-compatible file rendering for greater scene complexity. The software package also incorporates the feel of traditional animation with a rotating light table, "X" sheet visual representation of the work, and an onion-skinning or "flip-book" feature.

After extensive testing during the beta-test period, the commercial version of the software was tweaked by incorporating many of the testers' suggestions, such as output to Apple's QuickTime, a second camera-view in the scene-planning mode, and Adobe Illustrator input. Even before the commercial version was available, more than 12,000 people downloaded Toon Boom Studio, and 70,000 unique visitors went to to learn about the product. Toon Boom Studio is a native Mac OS X program and also is available for Windows (98, ME, 2000). It is available via download for $349 and via mail, which includes a disc and printed documentation, for $374. Also, it is available at a special discounted price for students at $99.
