Description

Welcome to this Toon Boom Animate Pro tutorial on creating a multi-plane scene. In the following lessons we'll learn how we can create the illusion of depth in a scene by positioning various layers in three dimensional space using the camera, side, top, and perspective views. We'll also use tools from the advanced animation toolbar to position our layers. From here we'll learn how we can add and animate a camera across the multiple planes of our scene to get the full effect of depth within it. Finally, we'll learn how we can enable 2D drawing layers to be rotated in 3D space along some 3D camera rotation. After watching this Toon Boom Animate Pro training you'll have the knowledge you need to create your own animated multi-plane scenes. Software required: Toon Boom Animate Pro 3.
