Harmony’s lush feature set gives animators freedom to create the best animations in the industry
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.
Make the most of 2D and 3D elementsby 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.
Bend and reshape drawings usingthe 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.
Animate the way you like, using a realhierarchy 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.
Create stunning special effects directlyin 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.
With the paperless workflow, work in bothbitmap 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.
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!
