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.
