Toon Boom Launches Harmony 17, 25 Percent Off Sale to Celebrate 25th Anniversary
Two-time Emmy-winners Toon Boom Animation has announced the release of Harmony 17, a special edition of their industry-standard animation production software in celebration of 25 years supporting creativity around the world. Last week, at the TitraFilm Mifa Party they sponsored, Toon Boom Animation’s co-presidents Francisco del Cueto, Francois Lalonde and Lois Miller shared their thoughts on the company’s renewed focus on making Harmony the preferred choice for traditional digital animators and production artists.
“Traditional digital animators will not want to miss Harmony 17,” Marc-Andre Bouvier, product manager at Toon Boom Animation, stated. “With an improved drawing engine and new features focused on hand-drawn animation – including drawing stabilizers, adjustable pen sensitivity settings and curvilinear perspective guides for large panning backgrounds – artists have more precision and control available to them than ever before.”
Toon Boom Animation also announced that the company is celebrating 25 years in animation with a 25-percent discount on annual licenses of Harmony and Storyboard Pro, running from June 11 to midnight on August 31, the company’s first sale in over four years.
