If you haven’t heard of it yet (and it’s okay if you haven’t), Anime Studio Pro is a versatile animation program from Smith Micro for creating cartoons, animated motion graphic sequences, and vector-based art at both a hobbyist and professional level.
We’ve got a new hands-on Anime Studio Pro 9 training video course from pro animator Mark Bremmer that emphasizes the real capabilities of the program and what sort of projects you can use it to create. Below, you’ll find three free tutorials from the course.
In addition to covering the popular heavy-hitters of design and animation like Photoshop and Maya, we also are always looking for ways to provide training for more specialized, niche software, especially when it’s something so capable. What’s shocking about Anime Studio in particular is that you can get polished, broadcast-quality results with a program that costs a fraction of the big names in design (The Pro version retails for $300, the basic for $50, but shopping around online will let you get either one for much, much less).
Here’s a quick video from Smith Micro that highlights just some of the new features available in Anime Studio Pro 9:
And if that isn’t enough to get you in the creative mindset, here are three demos from our new Anime Studio tutorial series available to download or on DVD-ROM.
