How to use

Toon Boom Studio 8 is the software you need to create your graphic animations. The software supports all the professional animation techniques. From traditional ones, digital, puppets, stop-motion or rotoscoping, you can choose the one you are more comfortable with or mix all in one to get different and interesting effects.

Toon Boon Studio 8 lets you create your ideas from zero. Its drawing tools will help you to design your art, but you can import different pictures from your scanner or camera to work with. Using one of the most advanced bone rigging tools, animate your drawings has never been so easy. Just create a wire skeleton and animate the 2D object with 3D techniques. Thanks to that, your characters will move as smoothly and realistically as in real life.

The new lip sync engine will automatically fit the animation with your sound on few simple steps and will save you hours of frustrating and tedious work. Toon Boom Studio 8 includes different 3D environments where we place our 2D graphics and multiple effects as rain, smoke and flames to complete our scene.
