"Crashes constantly not market ready AVOID"

April 29, 2010  |  By fairplay1

 |  Version: Toon Boom Studio 5.0

Pros

On paper TBS has great features, onion skinning, lipsync, you can make stop motion - export projects in a format suitable for Youtube etc. It is great for paperless workflow and theoreticaly its the complete package. I would love it - if it worked.

Cons

Full of bugs. Even with the right spec this programme crashed constantly and unpredictably. It has been nothing but trouble. Check the user Forums for hopping mad user posts about crashes. People have had to abandoned it completely to meet deadlines.

Summary

Appart from the crashing issues other poor features include the need to 'export' your work to play it back, this has to be repeated every time you want to review your project, its time consuming and slow. The programme is hungry and far too demanding on the CPU. I have a 3.06Hz processor and 2G of RAM ( better than the stated spec)
but the programme was still increadibly slow and running other programmes simultaneously was often not an option.
Support was also poor - when I reported my first crash - I was simply told 'crashes should be rare' - thanks guys that helps - then I was told I could try a better graphics card I am glad I did not decide to upgrade my system or graphics card for TBS however, as when I began looking into it I discovered people with top notch specs were having the same problems. In fact the ' industry pros' that ToonBoom is so happy to talk about were missing their deadlines due to this programmes unreliability. I know at least two who have abandoned it completely and others who are considering doing the same.
I am still waiting to have my issues resolved but frankly I just don't want to use it any more and the ToonBoom refund policy? Well you can imagine how good that is. They will not even talk about it even tho the software I have is completely useless to me. I haven't been able to complete a single project since I bought it. PLEASE THINK VERY CAREFULY. ITS A LOT OF MONEY TO WASTE.
