Toon Boom is an industry leader in creating 2D animation software, and has been used for animating The Simpsons, Family Guy, Bob’s Burgers, Sponge Bob Square Pants
, and even Disney’s The Frog Princess. In 2D animation, there are basically 2 types of animation
, full animation, also referred to as hand-drawn, or “Disney” animation, wherein each frame of animation is drawn… think classic Bugs Bunny cartoons. The second type of animation is called limited animation, also referred to as cut-out, or Flash animation… most prime-time animation, The Simpsons, etc. use cut-out animation. The major focus of this course is cut-out animation
, where we will create, rig, and animate a 2D digital puppet… our main character, Bob. For the traditional animator
, Toon Boom software has the feeling of animation software, built for animators. Throughout the course, I’ll be showing you the different tools and windows, all of which are based on traditional animation terms like pegs, fields, color cards, onionskin, light tables, and more. For the more seasoned digital animator
, if you’re familiar with working with programs like Flash, throughout the course I’ll be demonstrating how Toon Boom Animate differs and what makes it a powerful program. Just one example, Animate has a camera that works in 3D space
. Imagine setting up a multiplane scene in just minutes, without you having to install any additional plugins or software! The best part of this course? Even if you don’t own Toon Boom Animate, you can download a FREE fully functioning demo
