Basically, I'm looking for something that provides the 2D animation capabilities of Spriter (the support for bone rigs, in particular) but also comes with the deformation capabilities of Photoshop's Puppet Warp (e.g. I want to be able to take a ball, punch it and deform it on impact).

Is there such a thing? I'm adamant there must be, but I cannot seem to find anything useful.

  • Toon Boom Harmony? Incidentally all 3d animation tools are also 2d animation tools. – joojaa Feb 21 '16 at 17:49
  • Also all bone systems allow for free form deformations ;) – joojaa Feb 21 '16 at 18:03

You are looking for a software called "Spine" !

  • In particular, it looks like you would need the Professional edition to get access to the free-form deformation tool. esotericsoftware.com/spine-purchase – Sean May 8 '17 at 21:04
