Enabling Artistry

Harmony’s lush feature set gives animators freedom to create the best animations in the industry

  • Bitmap

    Bitmap and Vector tools

    Draw entirely in bitmap, entirely in vector,
    or mix them up. Draw lines in vector and fill
    the shading in bitmap. Draw lines in bitmap
    and do the fill in vector for colour palette
    flexibility. Your art. Your choice.

  • 2D-3D Integration

    2D-3D Integration

    Make the most of 2D and 3D elements
    by mixing them together in Harmony.
    Import 3D models, reposition them
    in your scene, and fly the camera through
    the scene. Render everything
    in Harmony through Maya.

  • Deform


    Bend and reshape drawings using
    the powerful Deform tools. Use Curve
    deform to twist drawings based on curves,
    Bone deform to bend rigid bones,
    and the brand new Mesh Warp to animate
    a drawing based on a grid.

  • Character Rigging

    Advanced Character

    Animate the way you like, using a real
    hierarchy directly on the main Timeline.
    Create advanced rigs with the Network,
    using Deform to push the quality to the
    next level while animating even faster
    than before.

  • Special Effects

    Special Effects

    Create stunning special effects directly
    in your animation software. No need to render
    out various layers to composite outside. You'll
    love its striking, amazingly useful special effects
    including Turbulence, Highlights and Shadows…
    and a full Particle system.

  • Paperless Drawing

    Paperless drawing

    With the paperless workflow, work in both
    bitmap AND vector with a simplified
    user-interface designed for the steps you use
    when you work tradigitally. Create rough
    drawings in Sketch; ink and paint in Draw,
    and move to Stage for effects.

  • Control Center Network

    Control Centre

    If you're a studio or production manager,
    animation director of technical director, you'll particularly
    love Harmony Network’s outreach and integration:
    a single server hosts all your assets, storing your library
    for everyone to share – client machines simply
    pull data from the server.
    It's the efficient workflow you always craved!

  • Cloud Computing Network

    Access Via the Cloud

    Harmony Network’s Control Centre
    (from which you can manage your production
    database and users, visualise your rendering queue
    and more), is now available in a cloud-based format,
    so freelancers and staff can download scene files,
    work on them, and upload them back again
    without on-site assistance.
