The studio produced animation for television series and commercials, and provided digital ink and paint services to animated TV series such as The Ren and Stimpy Show and The Simpsons and films such as We're Back! A Dinosaur's Story. Its software division was best known for developing USAnimation, a high-end software package designed to facilitate the traditional animation process using digital technologies.
In 1996, USAnimation sold its software development business to Canadian competitor Toon Boom Animation. Its animation production services were renamed Virtual Magic. Toon Boom continues development of the USAnimation software, today known as Toon Boom Harmony.
