Cavalry 2D animation software is being made available free as part of its 1.2 version upgrade by the developers behind the software, the Scene Group.

Following a £600,000 investment earlier this year, the Sheffield based specialists are removing the watermark, giving users access to Cavalry’s deep feature set including Drawing Tools, Duplicator, Rig Control, Rubber Hose, and Cel Animation entirely for free.

Cavalry’s resolution cap has also been increased to 1920 x 1080 px, ensuring users can create content for a wider array of platforms.

First launched in August of 2020 in response to the limitations of existing products, Cavalry was designed to offer users the power and flexibility of 3D animation, with the ease of 2D. It is based on traditional tools, but introducing innovative features.

Since the initial launch, over 30,000 have downloaded the software.

Cavalry 1.2 also has a Professional version with features such as Lottie export, Forge Dynamics and a Google Sheets integration, without the need to download or install additional plugins.

Chris Hardcastle, CEO at Scene Group said:“This release opens up Cavalry’s creative possibilities to a wider audience hungry for new and innovative ways to work. We welcome everyone from students and hobbyists to studios and agencies to put Cavalry to work and discover the benefits of a new and exciting approach to 2D animation.”

 Scene was founded in the UK in 2019, born out of motion design studio Mainframe.
