Dwango Co., Ltd. News Release:July 12th, 2018 / Open Source Animation Software OpenToonz Utilized in Kamikaze Douga's First Animated Feature Film 'BATMAN NINJA'
BATMAN NINJA is an animated film created mainly by 3DCG. However certain scenes incorporate traditional 2D animation. OpenToonz was utilized in the production of those scenes to process strokes, effect compositions and cinematography (e.g. camera works). One of the reasons why OpenToonz was chosen for this film was because it processes drawing in a special format which preserves the halftone information required to replicate the natural look of a pencil’s stroke and subtle faint lines. Additionally, OpenToonz uses a palette system which enables the user to work flexibly - a user can for example work on the cinematography of materials before the colorization process or change the color specification without having to go back to the finishing process.
