Product Description

 

Scanning and tracing tool for animations supporting vector tracing and 48-bit scanning

TraceMan HD is a scanning and tracing tool supporting vector tracing and 48-bit scanning. This software allows you to import large amounts of inbetweens and/or BG drawn on paper to the computer and tracing the images so that they are suitable for painting.
TraceMan HD comes with Mono/Gray/Vector Trace functions, and can convert the traced lines (including color separation lines) into resolution-independent vector data. Furthermore, thanks to the 48 bits (16 bits per channel) (maximum) scanning it can minimize the image quality deterioration at color or tone adjustment. Also the Tone Adjustment function that adjusts the brightness and/or sharpness of an image has been improved along with additional functions such as the Gray layer which allows grayscale adjustment while keeping the image original settings, or the support for ADF (Auto Document Feeder).
