The Video Screening Room
The same 2D animation software that’s used by Studio Ghibli in the making of its feature length anime films is now available as OpenToonz under an open source license.
OpenToonz, 2D animation software based on the proprietary Toonz, was released as open source on Saturday and the OpenToonz tutorials are already rolling in to YouTube. This one by Ryan A. Boone, of Tacoma, Washington, caught my eye. I learned some helpful tips and tricks watching this.
Leave a supportive comment if you’d like to see Ryan create more OpenToonz tutorials. Note that his YouTube channel has more than 11 million video views, so you may want to subscribe to the channel, too. You can follow Ryan on Twitter.
