Toon Boom Animation on Friday released two products, Toon Boom Studio 4.5 and Flip Boom Classic.

Among the changes in Studio 4.5 is the ability to add animation over your videos; you can print drawings to create flipbooks or use as a reference; import multi-layer Photoshop files and create more impressive multiplane effects; and you can export animation directly to iTunes and YouTube.

Toon Boom Studio costs US$329.99 (around £166) until July 31, 2008.

The second product is Flip Boom Classic, a new and improved version of Flip Boom. This application allows you to print a flip book of your drawings; set up your animation within the new camera frame; layout your drawings on top of each other; and publish your animation directly to your iPod.

Flip Boom Classic costs $39.99 (£20) or $9.99 (£5) for an upgrade.
