The following review written by one of the Software Informer contributors applies to version 9.1
Anime Studio Pro is a very complex solution for creating both 2D animations and cartoons. It offers a great deal of features which you can use to design various objects and characters in order to animate them afterward.
It stands as an efficient alternative to other programs that create frame-by-frame animations.

At first sight, the graphical user-interface of Anime Studio Pro may seem difficult to use because it displays a large number of panels and buttons. But actually it is very intuitive and even beginners can handle it.

The most important feature of Anime Studio Pro is the “bone-rigging” system. It will help you create realistic characters while saving a lot of time otherwise spent on editing each frame of an animation. This version of Anime Studio also comes with many other improvements and bug fixes, yet I didn't like that no Help manual was available. Moreover, tutorials on using this application are available only on developer’s website.

Another drawback lays in the fact that Anime Studio Pro is only able to open .anme files. It doesn't offer support for JPEG or other compressed graphics formats.

As a conclusion, this program can be considered to be a viable solution for creating 2D animations in an easy manner.

Pros

  • Includes many animation templates.
  • Highly customizable user-interface.
  • Includes a script designer.

Cons

  • No tutorials available in offline mode.
  • No Help manual available in offline mode.
  • It supports only ANME default format.

New Features in Anime Studio10

Anime Studio's Smart Bone Rigging system is a phenomenal advantage and really helps to accelerate my workflow. Anime Studio 10 uses a unique smart bone™ rigging system to create a character skeleton and then effortlessly move the character over the timeline. This is a phenomenal advantage and really helps to accelerate my workflow. With Anime Studio, a process that might have taken weeks, takes just hours - or sometimes even minutes!

Publisher's description

Anime Studio Pro is a professional quality animation tool for creating 2D cartoons, commercials, and music films. The program uses bone-rigging, which is a fast and efficient alternative to tedious frame-by-frame animation. You can add a skeleton to any image by pointing and clicking to create bones that overlay the parts of your image, to control arms or legs for example.
