Smith Micro Unveils Anime Studio 10

ALISO VIEJO, CA – Smith Micro Software, Inc. Productivity and Graphics Group has made available Anime Studio Pro 10 and Anime Studio Debut 10, intuitive animation software that allows artists of all ages and skill levels to craft high-quality 2D animations for personal or professional expression.

With enhanced features that provide increased bone control, more movement options and new tools, Anime Studio 10 gives artists improved ways to create animated content.

The latest bone features include rigging options to help set up more complex characters. The independent angle constraints allows bones to keep their global angle and are not affected by inverse kinematics, while the squash and stretch feature allows bones to retain their shape and direction as they move. The new Smart Bone Dials allow users to set up movement templates for characters - simply select the bones, adjust to the desired angle, input the duration and name the movement.

Anime Studio Debut 10 introduces users to the world of 2D animation with useful tools and elements that allow any graphic artist to produce work of the same caliber as experienced animators. New design tools such as the Paint Bucket, Blob Brush, Eraser and Reduce Points make it painless to manipulate objects into desired shapes.

Anime Studio 10’s new key features include:

  • New Bone Constraints and Smart Bone Setup for streamlined character movement
  • New Bounce, Elastic and Stagger Interpolation for adding realism to character movements
  • Enhanced Drawing Tools that make creating and adjusting animated content faster
  • New and improved content library provides pre-loaded characters and material for easy animating

Anime Studio Pro 10 is available for $299.99 and Anime Studio Debut 10 is $49.99.
