Toon Boom Animation has introduced Symphony, a 2D animation solution offering drawing and asset management tools.

Symphony builds on the feature sets offered in Opus and Concerto by adding morphing, basic inverse kinematics and glue (automatic joint connection), offering the ability to work in one integrated pipeline for digital animation.

The company claims that the morphing tool can generate as many in-betweens as required between key frames and the use of inverse kinematics and glue tools can speed up the process of animating joints.

A demo of Symphony will be available at the Toon Boom booth at MIPCOM 2004 in Cannes this week.

Toon Boom plans to start shipping Symphony in the first quarter of 2005 for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux systems. Pricing hasn’t yet been announced.
