Toonz studio open source March 26th

Posted 23 March 2016 - 08:14 AM


Crazy big announcement for the animation world! A battle tested suite will be opened up for all to use! Does anyone have cartoon/animation ideas? Maybe an 'Animated DIC' series?


Toonz was used to produce "Tale of the Princess Kaguya" and the "Futurama" series
Now, the Toonz Ghibli Edition used by legendary Japanese filmmakers like Hayao Miyazaki is going open-source, making it free to use by studios and novice animators alike.



With one announcement, the animation software game may have changed forever. Toonz, the software used by Studio Ghibli to produce films like The Tale of the Princess Kaguya, Howl’s Moving Castle, Ponyo and The Wind Rises, will be made free and open source to the animation community beginning March 26, 2016.

Ghibli has been using Toonz since the production of Princess Mononoke, and the new OpenToonz is dubbed “Toonz Ghibli Edition” because of all the custom-features that Toonz has developed over the years for the legendary Japanese studio.
