Animate 3 is a software made specially for paperless, frame-by-frame animation. The highlights of this product:

True pencil – the tool creates a pencil line with variable thickness that supports pressure sensitivity. The drawn lines are also easily modifiable.
Texture brushes – Animate allows you to draw with texture brushes. This feature allows the user to create that rough drawing effect as if it was drawn on paper, simulating that pencil-on-paper feeling.
Tool presets toolbar – this feature allows the user to sae presets for any tool, remembering the properties of that tool.

Some of the features in Animate 3:

  • Real Media Tools
  • Smart Palettes
  • Frame-by-frame Animation
  • Shift and Trace
  • Multiplane
  • Camera Moves
  • Motion Paths
  • Edit Ease
  • Simple Effects
  • Full-quality Render

The other announced product is Animate Pro 3. This is the best software for doing cut-out style animation. You can build character rigs, animate and do special effects – all in one software.

Additional Animate Pro 3 highlights:

Bone deform – this feature is meant to allow the user to add deformers to bend drawings around bones and articulations. Apply deform to vector drawings, textures or imported bitmaps.

While Animate Pro 3 basically has the same features as Animate 3, this software is a little more expanded in the presented options:

  • Bone Deform
  • Advanced Rigging
  • Integrated library
  • Cut-out Animation
  • Full 3D Rotation
  • Built-in Effects

Both products are now available on a 64-bit core. This gives you the freedom to use more of the computer’s resources and output high-resolution files for a professional-quality production. In addition, they both support standard two-finger Touch Gestures for zooming, rotating and scaling of the canvas when using a tablet. Finally, they both benefit from interface enhancements designed to simplify workflow and streamline the animation process.
