I’m fairly new to Animation. Own Toon Boom Studio for past year. Its OK… Looking at upgrading to Animate, if workflow is faster/easier. I’ve looked at “Product Comparison” chart, am trying to figure out if there’ s a lot of advantages to migrate up to Animate for $300 more (twice the price of TBS). Not sure I see what there is to gain for such a price?
Anyone who can shed light on the differences/worthwhile or not is appreciated.
Hi ve7ovy,You may want to download Animate PLE version and give it a try. It’s the free version and after you get in and toy with it you’ll see how much more feature rich and intuitive it is to use than Studio. I first started using Studio in March of this year and switched over to Animate without looking back about 3-4 weeks ago. the extra bucks were well worth it in my opinion.Jeff
As a newbie, myself, I started with TBS 4.5 and liked it, but something was missing. I kept doing too much with my Flash programs and importing it and just too much back and forth with other products. I’m cheap, like you, ;D so I didn’t want to pay the price for Animate until I saw how easy, yet powerful Animate was. Seriously it had just been out like a week and I moved to it. Now I don’t use my other programs unless I’m doing something with Text, which I’ll import to Animate. I’d say make the jump.
