Running a Command Line Utility

Toon Boom includes a number of command line utilities that you can use to convert image formats, bitmap or vector, into other image formats.

To run an utility, you must open your operating system's terminal or command prompt, then type the file path to the utility followed by arguments.

The command line utilities for Harmony are located in the bin directory of its installation folder. Based on the default installation path, it should be in the following location:

  • Windows: C:\Program Files (x86)\Toon Boom Animation\Toon Boom Harmony 16.0 Advanced\win64\bin
  • macOS (Stand Alone):/Applications/Toon Boom Harmony 16.0 Advanced/tba/macosx/bin
  • macOS (Server): /Applications/Toon Boom Harmony 16.0 Advanced Network/tba/macosx/bin
  • GNU/Linux:/usr/local/ToonBoomAnimation/harmonyAdvanced_16.0/lnx86_64/bin
NOTE By default, to run an utility, you must type its full path followed by its name in the command line. To circumvent this, you can add the path to Harmony's command line utilities to your system's list of default paths for commands—see Adding the Path to Harmony Utilities to the System's List of Paths.
