TLDR: The Complete Cartoon Animator 4 Pro Mac Bundle can help turn any budding artist into an experienced and seasoned animator for just $29.99. 

You’ve probably seen a behind-the-scenes documentary on the making of a Pixar movie and wondered about the hours and hours of work that go into producing premium animation. And yes, crafting a Toy Story or a Cars movie does require an incredible amount of time and attention. However, digital animation has evolved over the past few decades, democratized the artform so even a first-time animator can get their hands on professional-grade tools to produce some amazing work.

Cartoon Animator 4 Pro for Mac ($29.99 after code BFSAVE40 from TNW Deals) is one of those apps, offering a full array of abilities and features to help novice and experienced animation fans alike understand the steps for producing quality animated sequences of their own. This collection includes Cartoon Animator 4 as well as some key instruction along with some useful sample packs to help bring quality work to life.

It all starts with unlimited access to Cartoon Animator 4, the award-winning 2D animation software suite optimized to help get users started as well as create animated characters for use in videos, games, apps, and presentations. With CA4, creators can turn images into animated characters, generate lip-sync animation from audio, build 3D parallax scenes, produce 2D visual effects, and more. Plus, CA4 comes with a vast professional motion library to help make any type of animated character from humans, to quadrupeds, to even winged creatures move as fluidly as they would in real life.

Of course, all that animation creation power doesn’t mean much if you don’t know how to use it. With the 12 Principles of Animation Course, users get a primer on the fundamentals for bringing drawings into motion. Starting with the theoretical concepts, this 31 lecture, over 3.5 hour course then puts those ideas into practice, explaining timing, exaggeration, visual style, and more so your work straddles the line between art and purpose perfectly.

Finally, this collection also features The 3D Motion Sampler, a package of 80 2D animation sequences converted from 3D motion capture animations in a variety of genres. Animators can find the type of motions they want to use in their work, then model their own characters around the motion to create fantastic work without the excruciating time that usually takes.

The pieces of The Complete Cartoon Animator 4 Pro Mac Bundle would usually cost almost $250, but as part of the final hours of Black Friday Sale, it’s not only discounted, but shoppers can also save another 40 percent by using the code BFSAVE40 when you make your purchase. That drops the price for this package down to only $29.99 for a very limited time.
