In a panic over Moho 12 release and here is why...

Post by stealingfeathers » Wed Aug 03, 2016 12:03 am

Hello folks. If there is anyone out there with "inside info," I would LOVE to get a reply:

I was thrilled to see that next AS update is coming, but alarmed to see that it is coming out as soon as August 9th. I'm actually more alarmed about the name change back to Moho, but please let me explain why:

I teach online college courses using Anime Studio exclusively. I instruct my students to purchase the education version of the software from the link provided at the Smith Micro website. My classes start Aug. 22nd. All of my tutorials and all of my course content currently refer to, and are written for AS version 11 (we use both Debut and Pro).

What will happen, come Aug. 22, when my students go to purchase Anime Studio? Will my students have access to Anime Studio version 11 for a while longer?Will the name already be changed to Moho when the students go to the academic purchase page?

Will the tutorials at the Smith Micro website be changed right away...and also the URL's? (Because I link to some of those from my online classroom.)

While I am personally excited to see an update for AS, it is a nightmare professionally. I can't possibly rewrite all of my course materials and tutorials in the next two weeks. If I need to scramble and update information on my online course, I've got two weeks. The sooner I know what's up, the better.

If anyone can help, I'd appreciate it. I've already sent an email to Smith Micro support, but have no idea how long it takes to get a response.

Don't worry. Everything will keep mostly the same and the page will explicitly say Moho is a new version of Anime Studio. All the old tutorials and links (plus new tutorials) and links will be available too.
All what you can do in version 11 can be done on version 12. So if your students get Moho 12 instead of Anime Studio 11, your course can continue with no problems.
