Animation software developer Toon Boom has released the first version of its Toon Boom Studio Web animation suite. Designed to creating animations in Flash format, the suite includes a number of features added in response to beta testing.
Recently added features include QuickTime bitmap export, the ability to import and vectorize bitmap scenes, secondary cameras in Sceneplanning mode and exposure updates from the timeline. The company has also introduced a number of new tools including Close Gap, Paint Unpainted, freeform deformation and a Cutter. Toon Boom also claims that it has improved the SWF rendering engine to generate smaller output files (with reporting) and increased stability.
Toon Boom Studio, which runs on Windows and Mac OS X, costs $349.
