We asked Toon Boom specialist and now, Moho Official Influencer, Rhea Santos to put Moho to the test. Having never played in Moho before, she compares different features and the ease of use between the two animation programs. Here's what she had to say:
Often times getting started is the hardest part for new users. I spent two days tinkering around learning the set up, playing with different features and figuring out how I could apply what I knew about puppet making in Toonboom to Moho.
