This is a great software , which I use constantly for sketching , illustration, as well as animation. (it can be used to capture stop-motion frames , too.)

Besides the gallery on the main TVP web site there are additional examples of animation done with TVP on this site:

Hi everybody,

A new update of TVP Animation 9 is available. This version fixes some bugs and contains a new incredible and frequently asked feature : the "Out of Pegs" This great new extension of the lightable allows you to temporarily move, scale and rotate the lightable images of the surrounding frames in order to make inbetweening easier.


The update is free for TVP Animation 9 owners !
