Industry Standard for animation Flash? And Toon Boom slowly becoming? Urrrr... You know, the amount of misinformation on this website is sometimes so frustrating!
Toon boom has been industry standard for ages! It just that 99% of newgrounds use it. Anything after the retas pro age was done by toon boom, they don't get the title "Worldwide leader in animation software." from nowhere.

Here's some comments why on cartoonbrew.com with Flash v Toon Boom:
I have been a software developer for 12+ years now. I have used flash for various things. Never art. Websites, intros and some small interactive apps that communicate with .NET. I have CS6 and I didn't even install the Flash component of it. I am using Animate Pro, while I am still learning it, the tutorial line up for this is incredible. Flash has no such thing. Sure, there are tutorials to explain how to do various things, but nothing as complete as what Toon Boom has done to help the beginning digital animator like myself. I've seen comments here about Flashes "Flatness" and I agree. So far from what I've seen, I prefer Animate.
In college we did the whole Adobe (cs3 at the time). It came with a bible and that was mostly exercises for balls and candle fire...pretty disappointing considering my teacher was an art prof. years later i stumble on toonboom studio (6 i believe). it reminded me of flash enough to understand...and actually is relative to music production software as far as layout (for all you logic, flstudio, etc nerds like me).
in one day i made 5 cartoon shorts that would have takin me much longer on flash.
Seeing how they both have their advantages, and my views on monopolies...They should conglomerate themselves to make FLASH BOOM. This would end the war, and animators would get the best of both worlds, but thats like telling china to leave the buddhist "terrorists" alone. See the hilarity. look up Led Falkens youtube page and look for vitamin beard and ninja please...theres more to come as well. TOON BOOM ALL THE WAY
I'm working with toon boom animate pro(previously known as Digital pro)
I started off with Flash and all I can say is its really dumb to compare toon boom to flash as TB is 100x better than flash, it has so many features so that the user will not have the need to go to Photoshop or After effects as everything such as effects can be done in just the software on its own, not to mention uniting the different toon boom softwares such as Storyboard pro with Animate pro!
When workign in flash, things get so tedious, Toon Boom literally has ways to solve all the things that would give you a headache in flash such as line cutting, color management and the hierarchy systems are awesome for big projects!
People Flash is not for the Animator, Toon Boom was specifically created for animation by people who understand the animator!
