User Guide > Import


Toon Boom Animate allows you to import external content as well as being able to draw directly in the software. This means that characters, backgrounds and videos created in other drawing, painting and multi-media programs can be brought in and animated. You can import QuickTime videos, pictures, multi-layered PSD files, as well as AI, SWF and PDF files. You can also scan your images in with a scanner and either import them as bitmap or vectorize them.
