Whether you're an experienced artist animator or just getting started with a new hobby and want to come up to speed super fast, Anime Studio 9 is an investment that you won't regret. Our entry-level Debut product is chock-full of tutorials and videos to help you learn the basics and our Pro level version is one of the most powerful animation products on the market, but at an incredibly affordable price. If you're at all serious about animation, there's no reason not to jump into the Pro level product.
Anime Studio was already an amazingly powerful animation tool before, but with the latest release you'll find even more solid features. For users who've already been working with a previous version of Anime Studio, we have great discounts on upgrades. Check out the new features in version 9 below and then upgrade today.
MORE CONTROL & SAVES TIME
The single most requested feature that our users have been asking for is finally here.
In Motion Graphs, the animation channels of the current layer are displayed graphically, rather than just as points along a line. With Editable Motion Graphs, now users can get maximum, detailed, control of their animation, instead of relying on pre-set interpolations.
You can now edit motion curves with Bezier handles directly instead of relying on tweening, ease-in and ease-out. [Pro Only Feature]
Anime Studio 9 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!
HIGHER QUALITY & MORE CONTROL
New in Anime Studio Pro 9, Smart Bones is an incredible feature that reduces or entirely removes distortion around your character's joints - specifically around knees and elbows. Group a set of points and use the Smart Bones control levers to create 3D looking motion that you can easily repeat with the turn of a dial. For example with Smart Bones you can control facial expressions and head-turning on a character with simple lever movements instead of having to touch each bone point. Smart Bones not only steps up the quality and realism of the bone actions, but makes it MUCH easier to repeat complex movements and control your rigged elements. [Pro Only Feature]
For professional animators, Anime Studio offers an end-to-end tool that makes it possible for a single person or small animation teams to produce work on par with a full animation house.
Onion skins within Anime Studio Pro 9 have been completely redesigned and now include transparencies to help you tweak your animation exactly how you want to. [Pro Only Feature]
SAVES TIME & EASIER TO USE
The Smart Tool Palette provides a super-efficient, improved interface, which make using Anime Studio's enhanced drawing tools faster than ever. The translate, scale and rotate tools have been combined into one super tool called the Transformation tool.

MORE SPEED & ORGANIZATION
Key Frames are a core element in creating animations and the enhancements in Anime Studio 9 provide a level of speed and organization to your workflow that will impress even the most proficient animator. You can now double click on the timeline to add key frames. One or several key frames can now be moved past each other. Scale your key frames vertically on the motion graph and apply relative key frame changes. Assign colors to keyframes in the timeline, to help keep track of animation sequences that relate to each other. You can also hold the duration of a particular key frame as long as you want now.
EVEN EASIER TO USE
Even easier to use than before, with a more intuitive user interface, faster access to critical and often-used tasks and tools, and new color-coding options that keep your project organized. Assign colors to layers in the layers palette, helping you keep track of layers that relate to each other in some way. You can also Undo/Redo layers now too.
