Rome, Italy – Digital Video S.p.A., the R&D Company of Toonz, today announces the upcoming release of Plastic for iPad. Available in the App Store the first week in June, Plastic will let users easily animate photos or drawings and share animations with their friends. No drawing experience is necessary: load an image, build a skeleton structure and animate this structure deforming the image.
Plastic uses an innovative and powerful technology that allows you to create a complete animation with just a single drawing. Animation is controlled by skeleton structures that allow you to make stretching and bending deformations with no need for drawing each pose. You can also modify the Stacking Order of skeleton nodes to fine tune overlapping sections: at any time you choose whether a part of the subject is in front or behind, giving much more freedom to your animation.
Plastic really brings your images to life! Unleash the artist inside you and challenge your friends by sharing your animations!
* Load images from the Plastic Library, Photo Library and iPad Camera
* Use the Edit Image tools for masking and flipping the loaded image
* Enjoy the intuitive skeleton creation
