Check Out Some of the Drawing Tool Improvements in Cavalry

Ian Waters walks through the design tools in Cavalry, including some new features.

The Scene Group’s Cavalry 1.1 added 30 new features, 80 enhancements, and 350 bug fixes. One thing of note is a complete rewrite of the drawing tools. “We completely rewrote out drawing tools to make them able to handle over 100x the shape complexity of their predecessors,” Ian Waters says.

With Cavalry 1.1, you can close an open curve simply by dragging one end to the other. Ian’s video covers everything from the pencil tool to cel animation and onion skinning features.
