The True Color Professional Program, Studio/32 version 1.1

Luc [Barthelet] sold his company “Version Soft” and its high quality Paintworks product line [for the Apple IIgs] to EA in 1988, when Electronic Arts still had ambitions to be a leading artist tools company. [...] After building Studio 1, Studio 8 and Studio 32 for EA, Luc led the successful reverse engineering effort that established EA as a player on the Sega Genesis console market.
   - excerpt adapted from Luc Barthelet's biography on MobyGames.

For projects with artists, EA used its own early graphics software programs like Deluxe Paint (1985) and Studio/32 to create sprite graphics. I think before that time graphics were plotted as individual pixel points.
   - excerpt adapted from Mike Lopez on Quora.

There are 4 disk-images (all 800K) stuffed with DropStuff 5.
The Program disk contains the Studio/32 program and a folder called Tutorial.
The Help & Utility disk contains the program's help file, two Studio/32 utilities and a folder called Art.
The Art#1 disk contains two 32-bit images that show off Studio/32's versatility.
The Art#2 disk contains two more 32-bit images.

And I literally just posted in the Studio/1 thread about this and how I've been looking for it forever. Thank you!

Studio/1 is the only one with animation features. Both Studio/8 and Studio/32 can't do it.

Can this do animation like Studio/1? Or is this limited to only painting/drawing like Studio/8? Does Studio/8 have any advantage whatsoever over this?
