Improvements To Brush Spacing
Brushes sometimes tended to bunch up, especially around pointy corners. The brush spacing is now much more even, including when the curviness of a shape is animated over time. Anime Studio 9.5 Now Out!
Animate With Mike Scott
In this tutorial we animate a simple scene with a character jumping over a puddle. We draw the character in Photoshop and import him into Anime Studio. I explain how to set the character up for import, we rig some bones to his legs and have him say a few lines, using Switch layers for the mouth. www.mikescottanimation.com

NEW in Anime Studio Pro 9.5 - When moving an object forward and back in Z, Depth Shifting is an option to preserve its apparent size. Anime Studio Pro 9.5 does this by automatically applying the proper amount of scale. This can be used to arrange landscapes, for example placing mountains far away without forcing them to become tiny. Anime Studio 9.5 Now Out!
