Is Toon Boom Studio worthwhile?

Hello everyone,
I am completely new to animation, and was wondering what others thought of Toon Boom Studio. Most reviews that I have found start off with Studio, then move onto Animate, Animate Pro or Harmony. Those pieces of software are out of the question because I simply cannot afford them. So is Toon Boom Studio worthwhile for a beginner like me, especially if I have a stronger interest in Frame-by-frame traditional animation?

Thank you,…

Toon Boom Studio has been discontinued but try a trial of Harmony Essentials.
