Toon Boom Harmony was used in the making of the latest John Lewis Christmas Christmas Advert.  

The lastest ad from John Lewis is now a viral hit on YouTube with over 5m views! This remarkable animation used Toon Boom Harmony in it's production. It's no accident that the animation bears a resemblance to some of the earlier Disney work as part of the production team consisted of ex-Disney animators. Toon Boom Harmony was used to create some of the characters.

See what makes Harmony special

Impressive New Special Effects
Advanced Blurs
Take advantage of the wide array of blur tools, including new Gaussian and box blurs, rotational blur, zoom blur, and spiral blur. Achieve effects such as blur around a circle, which is similar to blurring a rotating merry-go-round. With zoom blur, you can blur towards a central point, like when a character is running towards a camera.  And spiral blur gives the effect of water draining down a drain.

Lens Flare
Take advantage of the lens flare to create lens flares with up to 10 flares.  Adjust the hotspot, angle, and spread, and animate these values over time for cool effects.

Use the Turbulence effect to modify a drawing and break it apart. Create interesting effects like making a drawing disintegrate or explode. Create vibrating lines, heat waves coming off a road, or ripples on water. Break up the lines to look like crayon or other paper effects.

Turbulence Noise
Play around with Turbulence Noise to create new effects like lighting or sun rays. Make your drawing look like an overexposed photograph. Experiment with creating walls of fire, smoke, mist, or clouds.

Colour Effects
Use the Channel Swap effect to extract red, green, blue, and alpha values and use the channels to make adjustments. Use the new Hue-Saturation effect to perform colour correction or colourize the drawing to get looks like sepia tones.

Harmony 10.3 delivers also many other improvements, such as navigation in the Network view, Expression column, scripting, and SDK improvements.
