It also features multi-plane (three-dimensional) camera support with the ability to move, scale and rotate elements; use symbols and pegs; add sparkling effects and compositing, adapt the user interface and more.
System requirements for Animate Pro call for Mac OS X 10.5 or later, 2GHz Intel Core Duo processor or faster, 1GB RAM (2GB recommended), 300MB hard disk space, OpenGL video card with 128MB VRAM, 1280 x 1024 resolution.
Manager is intended to help animation workflows track the progress of production in real-time. Both Manager and Animate Pro are part of Toon Boom Animation's Harmony, a team-based infrastructure for animation production.
