For those of you who complain that animation takes too long; that was 3-4 years he worked on that thing.

I noticed that the animation style (but not the drawing style, obviously) was very anime-influenced. I mean the high-end, expensive anime, not the other stuff.

It's always dangerous to assume that all four-legged animals are built along the same lines. Not too long ago I did what I thought was a nice horse gallop, then I looked up some reference material and realized that horses gallop with the hind legs hitting the ground first, followed by the front hoov...

Funny, I never got the connotation of "motion" from "Moho". In fact, I though it was a pretty weird name. Although it could have been a lot worse.

It could have been called "Boner".

Chio,

Bozetto is great, but I prefer the Belgian film.

I'm way out of my depth here, but... why not use bezier curves for elements that don't need to be animated (deformed) such as backgrounds, for instance? If you can't find a solution to make beziers work with bones, you can just disable bones for those shapes.

I don't want to be a nitpicker, but I have to point out that the ears are too high up on the head. In general, the bottom of the ear is at about the same latitude as the bottom of the nose and the top is at the same latitude as the top of the eyes (I just checked this in the mirror to make sure). If...

Excellent! I think the only problem with the arms is that they are moving around randomly for no reason. Also, they never pause. I would suggest animating a short scene in which she has something to do besides talk. Something with action and emotion suited to animation. Then you should really be abl...

Some animations I just put up on my updated web site.

Some of these files are pretty large (~10 MB), so keep that in mind. Not sure why the Quicktime movies only start playing after they are completely loaded. If anyone can tell me how to get around that, I would appreciate it. The first animation is something I already posted on this board once. http:...

Sorry, getting my scanner out of mothballs would be a real hassle for just one scan. The front of the card shows stills from the animation of: that singing girl that we all know and love, "Cat Bastard", something from Squeaky Pictures and one from the talented people who brought us that Pepsi commer...

Silly me, I completely forgot I got a promotional postcard at Siggraph. The front of the card features sample artwork created in Moho, none of it anime-styled. The text is "Create your own Cartoons and Animations." The description on the back says nothing about anime, stating "From hobbyists making ...

Well, the box cover art is stupid for two reasons: first, making that kind of complex art with Moho would be pretty much impossible for all practical purposes; second, no sane person would try to animate artwork that complex in any program, or with traditional tools. Basically, this is like taking a...

I didn't think to ask. I wasn't particularly interested because 1) you can still download Moho 5.4 and 2) the only difference is that Anime Studio is going to come packaged with content. The price, it looks like, will be $200, which I think is quite fair. If I'm wrong and it's $300 for the Pro versi...
