Two Decades of Digital Animation: TVPaint Celebrates the 20th Anniversary of its Landmark 2-D Animation Software

Chicago, January 20, 2011 
The French company TVPaint Développement is proud to announce the 20th anniversary of its 2-D digital animation technology and celebrates this event with its community by publishing a new website: This site includes more detailed information in a more accessible design and layout.

TVPaint Développement is behind powerful 2-D animation software such as TVPaint (developed in 1991 on the Amiga), Aura (1995-2002), Mirage (2003-2005) and, more recently, TVP Animation.

TVP Animation's strength comes from its technology based on the bitmap. Thanks to this technology, the user can easily and instantaneously recreate any traditional rendering and animate it in gouache, watercolor, oil painting or chalk filters. It remains a competitive alternative to traditional vectorial 2-D animation.

Designed for artists, TVP Animation integrates paint brushes and other drawing tools, textures, numerous animation tools, storyboard functionalities, lip-synch features, stop-motion possibilities and special effects into a single product, freeing visual artists to explore entirely new creative ideas and techniques. TVP Animation is the animation solution allowing animators to make a cartoon movie, from the first digital pencil tests to the final compositing, within a single unified environment.

TVP Animation software is very versatile and concerns a wide variety of industries and productions, both large and small: 2-D and 3-D animation studios, special effects studios, video games developers, production studios, freelance artists, dubbing companies, art students, art and animation schools, TV networks, and hobbyists. Download the demo version of TVP Animation from the TVPaint Developpement's website:

This year, TVPaint Développement has even more to celebrate with two Academy Award nominations for two of its projects: My Dog Tulip, a feature film by Paul and Sandra Fierlinger in the Animated Feature Film category, and the short movie “Urs” by Moritz Mayerhofer, in the Short Film (Animated) category.
