Above are frames from an animation clip commissioned for US Animation's "ToonBoom Studio" product, which creates vector graphic Internet movies with traditional animation art. My clip was used for a demo movie of what tracing and painting standard "cell" art into ToonBoom Studio would look like as a finished Flash movie.
The animation was drawn traditionally on registered animation paper and then traced on a 12" x 12" Wacom tablet (the software supports the tablet directly). The animation elements are then programmed with movement and exported as a Macromedia Flash movie.
This clip first premiered in the ToonBoom Studio demo reel at MacWorld New York (7/2001), and the product won MacWorld's "Best of Show" award.
