Toon Boom Animation on Tuesday announced the release of Toon Boom Studio V3 for Intel-based Macs. A free update for current users, Toon Boom Studio V3 costs $399.
Toon Boom Studio is a 2D animation software package designed for individuals who want a digital workflow to manage drawing, lip-syncing to animation, setting up action in a 3D space and publishing content to different media like TV and the Web.
The new Universal Binary version of Toon Boom Studio is up to 2.5 times faster on an Intel-based iMac than it was on a G5-based iMac, according to Toon Boom President and CEO Joan Vogelesang. She said that this is the first in a series of Toon Boom products optimized for Intel-based Macs. Toon Boom Studio Express, a scaled-down version aimed at beginners, will follow in April, 2006.
