Toon Boom Announced USAnimation SP#2
At Digital Media World in London, Toon Boom Technologies will release USAnimation Version 5's second service pack. In addition to bug fixes and general improvements, this service pack brings with it a number of new features. They include a New Line Texturing, which allows for different styles of line animation (like crayon, chalk, etc.) and in Sceneplanning, one can display all the keyboard shortcuts in an easy-to-use help menu. In addition, the pack offers a horizontal flipping of images, which means that one can now flip images horizontally when scanning. This feature can be a useful function when two elements are drawn on both sides of the same paper (e.g. shadows on one side of the paper with the character on the other). This service pack should be available to USAnimation V5 users by the week of November 13, 2000.
