Animation software used by Studio Ghibli goes open source

A prominent piece of software used by Japanese animation house Studio Ghibli is about to go open source for independent animators. Known as Toonz, the software has played an important part in the development of several Studio Ghibli films over the years, as well as being used in popular animated TV series like Futurama. As part of an acquisition deal, Toonz’s creators are releasing the previously enterprise-only software as open source on March 26th. – Adam Westlake, SlashGear
