TVPaint Animation Professional Edition includes many tools to allow you to emulate pipelines of traditional 2D animated productions where every step of the process builds upon the body of work created by previous steps. Storyboards, animatics, backgrounds, key animations, inbetweens, cleanups, colors... TVPaint Animation Professional Edition makes it easy to do all of these in an organized fashion. The only difference between doing things "on paper" and doing things "on computer" is the amount of space and material a production takes up ! No more massive stacks of disorganized papers and post-it notes!
Of course, TVPaint Développement would be pleased to provide assistance and training to ease the transition from traditional to digital production.
