May 2019: Our studio has been using Flash 8 in production since 2004. That sounds like a crazy long time because it is. The software has served us well, though, and our crew still love it, but as we look to the future, we are currently exploring Blender as a replacement for our digital 2D pipeline. Even though Blender is known as a 3D software platform, it has a new function called Grease Pencil and so far our tests with it show it to be very promising for digital 2D/3D hybrid production workflow. It needs some polish, but we definitely think it can do what we need it to do and then some. Grease pencil has amazing potential and we want to explore it. We’ll keep you posted.
