Toon Boom Animation today announced the release of Toon Boom Studio V3 for Intel-based Macs. Toon Boom Studio includes a rich animation toolset that works with QuickTime and Final Cut Pro, offering a complete solution for developing high-quality animations on both PowerPC and Intel-based Macs. “Toon Boom is totally committed to the Mac community and, given the ease of creating Universal applications, this is the first in a series of Toon Boom products optimized for Intel-based Macs,” said Joan Vogelesang, President and CEO of Toon Boom. “In test comparisons between a PowerPC G5 and Intel Core Duo iMac, the new Universal version of Toon Boom Studio ran up to 2.5 times faster, so we’re excited to see what will be created with the latest Toon Boom Studio.” A Universal version of Toon Boom Studio Express V3 is slated to be available April 2006.
