Installing OpenToonz

Downloading OpenToonz

You can download the appropriate version of OpenToonz for your operating system from the Download page in the official OpenToonz web site. Choose either the Windows or macOS version to start downloading the installer application.


All other builds apart from the ones downloaded from the official web site ARE NOT officially supported.

It's possible to find the developer's "nightly" builds here, where you can test the latest features and bug fixes, as they are being included in OpenToonz.


WARNING: Use at you own risk! The Nightly Build version could potentially be a highly unstable one, so it is not adviced to use it in production environments.

Also, MorevnaProject provides builds for Windows 32-bit, Windows 64-bit, macOS, and appimage as well as snap for Linux.

Finally, there are OTX (OpenToonz eXperimental) timely releases by manongjohn avalaible for Windows 64-bit, macOS and in appimage format where it is possible to test the latest features and bug fixes in a portable way (i.e. without the need to do a full OpenToonz install).
