After seeing the new toonboom storyboard bitmap drawing features this has me really excited about the possible future of Animate and other toon boom products. Its a big step in the right direction in my opinion. Especially for traditional style animators.
Im pretty sure the next animate will have this, and if they can find a better way of managing and playblasting multiple scenes, reimplementing the ability to add efx via layers like in animate for those who prefer that method, and add the bitmap drawing tools for animate, I might actually go out and buy this version this time. Im just really excited to see where they take this next. I really hope in the next animate they really think about the single animator who doesnt have a team in mind.
I might be the only one excited for this new bitmap drawing possibility.
