You can apply the style across hundreds of drawings. Incorporate
texture on your lines for cool effects.
Animate Pro 3 now comes with Bone-style Deform! Bring your cut-out
characters to the next level by adding deformers to bend drawings
around bones and articulations. Apply deform to vector drawings,
textures, or imported bitmaps
Animate allows you to draw with texture brushes using the Brush tool.
Take advantage of this to create rough drawings just like you would on
paper, simulating that pencil-on-paper feeling.

When creating paperless animation, you often want to save frequently
used brushes or pencils so you can quickly go back to those
preferences. Using the new Tool Presets toolbar, you can save presets
for any tool, remembering the properties of that tool.
Tool Presets Toolbar
When working in cut-out animation, you often want to save standard brush
or pencil settings for different areas of your character rig. Using the
new Tool Presets toolbar, you can save presets for any tool,
remembering the properties of that tool.
Both products are now supercharged on a 64-bit core. This gives you the freedom to use more of the computer's resources,
and output high-resolution files for a professional-quality production.
In addition, they both support standard two-finger Touch Gestures for zooming, rotating, and scaling of the canvas when using a tablet.
Finally, they both benefit from interface enhancements designed to simplify workflow and streamline the animation process.
