Anime Studio 5 Release

Anime Studio 5 is now out from efrontier (makers of Poser). 2 flavours – standard and pro. USD49 and USD 199.
EDIT: Just posted a mini review as a comment on this software below. (It’s actually a little dissapointing).

  • Bone-Based Animation Technology – Using Anime Studio’s bone rigging system, you can add a skeleton to any image by simple point and click, then bring it to life!
  • Ready to Use Content – Choose from pre-made Anime style characters or create your own using Anime Studio’s drawing and coloring tools.
  • Import Your Own Artwork – Import 2D imagery, 3D imagery or video files.
  • Vector Graphics – Resize your images with no loss in quality using Anime Studio’s vector-based layer system.
  • Intuitive Timeline – Anime Studio interpolates through your Timeline so you avoid the tedium of frame-by-frame drawing and save time.
  • Audio Support – Add audio soundtracks to your animations. Anime Studio supports WAV and AIFF formats.
  • Adobe Photoshop Integration – Import layered PSD files using a Photoshop plug-in that converts files to Anime Studio format, included free with Anime Studio.
  • Pen Tablet Support – Draw naturally with a pen tablet and recreate the sensation of drawing on paper.
  • Publish for Multiple Media – Output your animations to video, TV, and web formats.

    Just wanted to follow up with a mini review. We bought a copy of this software to test and I have to say it’s rather dissapointing.

    I’m a big fan of Poser, but this software is a poor cousin both in terms of user interface and features. There is no character creation element to the software and the bulk of the creativity must be done outside the app. This is really a post tool to animate characters you have already illustrated elsewhere.

    Maybe my expecations were a little high, but to be honest TOONBOON is probably a better bet if you’re getting into animation and want something that is more an animation tool than Flash.
