With so many software options to choose from these days, it is sometimes hard to pick which one will get a special place in your animation toolbox. Sometimes a single feature can make all the difference and is enough to sway animators towards a new package.

No matter the required style of animation, Toon Boom ranks high on the list of top 2D animation solutions. Start in pre-production with Storyboard Pro and plan your production. Then, seamlessly export your files to Harmony for animation in any style.

Choose how you want to animate: 2d traditional animation on paper, paperless (digitally) frame-by-frame, or cut-out puppet animation. One particular TB feature made specifically for cut-out animation is Deformers.

There are 2 main types of deformers: Bone Deformer and Curve Deformer. These are some of the “secret weapons” in Harmony, providing so much animation control it almost feels like cheating, making it possible to increase your animation productivity without sacrificing quality.
