A great new resource will soon be available!!

Like Studio Ghibli films and Futurama?  Ever wanted to create animations like them?  Well there's great news for animation enthusiasts, because it was recently announced that the software company Digital Video will release an open-source version of their software Toonz.  (It should be set for release on March 26.)  This new version of the software will have features developed by Studio Ghibli themselves, which will certainly be interesting to see how the animation process in the east differs from here in the west.  I've always had a fascination with Japanese-animated films like the works of Miyazaki and other Ghibli films, so I might give this a shot.

The company will still offer its Premium version of Toonz for animation studios at a competitive price, so whether or not the open source version will be drastically simplified is one of my main questions. It may not be a bigwig animation software like ToonBoom, but if you're at all interested in the anime and Ghibli animation style, definitely check it out.

The full story can be found right here on Digital Video's website.
