Cut Out Advantages of Advanced vs Essentials

Hi there

I had Toon Boom Studio and Animate 3 and got Essentials for free.

I now realized, that Advanced doesn’t have any IK Controllers anymore (which i feel is kind of a rip-off since i would pay the Upgrade Price from Animate 3 and basically would get less Features).

However, in the Features Comparision table it sais, that Essentials only has “Basic” Cut Out Tools and in the Advanced Column it has a checkmark. I’m just wondering, what Advanced offers in that department that can’t be found in Essentials.

Thanks for clearing things up and i hope Toon Boom reconsiders taking IK’s out of the Advanced Version (i’m really not interested in the Node System and Animate did pretty much everything i needed).
