discover-new-features-harmony-15In creating films, television, and web series, Harmony is the most complete and efficient solution for animation production. Toon Boom animation software is the most popular in the world. In fact, it is used to create over 75% of the 2D content produced globally.

Companies such as Walt Disney Animation, Warner Bros., Cartoon Network, DreamWorks Animation, and Universal Studios use Toon Boom Harmony for creating animations for game development, advertisements, feature films, explainer videos, and episodic series. It’s been used in productions such as The Simpsons, Rick and Morty,  Archer, and The Family Guy. Now, with the release of Harmony 15, Toon Boom offers the only software to break down the barrier between vector and bitmap.

Toon Boom Harmony 15: Key Features
