Toon Boom Harmony, the most powerful, efficient and versatile application created specifically
for animation, is the industry standard, used by studios of every size – all over the world.

For instance, The Simpsons, Family Guy, American Dad!, Phineas and Ferb and The Cleveland
Show all use Harmony. The Princess and the Frog, The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie,
and both Curious George movies as well. Plus Wild Kratts, The Simpsons Movie, and Geronimo
Stilton. Disney uses it. 20th Century Fox Animation uses it. And Universal.

Toon Boom Digital Production Pipeline

A uniform, complete and efficient production pipeline

Created specifically for animation, the customisable Toon Boom Pipeline comprises
Emmy winners Toon Boom Storyboard Pro and Toon Boom Harmony.
Together, they cover the entire production workflow from storyboarding to final compositing,
and deliver the highest throughput within the process.

    Animate using a real hierarchy, while keeping the animation in the main timeline for fast, efficient results.

  • Deform

    Deform

    Benefit from advanced animation tools like Deform to work at a higher quality, yet at a faster pace!

Rich Feature Set

Bring power to your fingertips and integrate your animation team

  • 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

    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
    Rigging

    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

    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

    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.

Don't just do it. Do it with style.

Behind the perfection of a man's style must lie the passion of a man's soul. – Oscar Wilde

Efficiently turn out projects in any style: frame-by-frame, paperless, on paper, cut-out animation,
mixed media, 2D-3D Integration. You name it, you can do it.
How often have you asked yourself why your animators can't use bitmap and vector interchangeably
in the same project? Well, guess what? In Harmony – and only in Harmony – you can.
Now that's style.

Quotes I am anxiously awaiting the next
Toon Boom release as with each new
version they bring about wonderfully
innovative tools that are making
a traditionally tedious field accessible
to a much wider array of artists
than ever before.
By Peter Gend Quotes

Creative Bloq

Quotes Overall, though, Harmony is quite
possibly the coolest animation software
on the market today. Coming from a
Flash background, I can honestly say
the transition to Toon Boom software
wasn't too difficult.
By Tammy Coron Quotes

Digital Media World

Quotes Toon Boom Harmony
allows 2D and 3D integration.
Users can import and use 3D assets within
Harmony, and transform objects on all
three axes. The same Pencil tool is
included, and a Deform tool for images
and drawings animated over time using
advanced bone and curve deformers. Quotes

Don't just do it. Do it in Harmony.

We love Harmony Network. But then, it's our baby. So our marketing guy, who's just a bit jaded, said you might
want to see what other people think – people who use Harmony to get the most out of their studios.
How much do they love Toon Boom's Emmy award-winning software? See for yourself:

Quotes The incredible part, which I have not
seen in any other animation software,
is that after you create the stroke, you
can manipulate it into any shape… and
very efficiently change it to the core. Quotes
