Originally published in September 2016, we decided this blog post would be great to resurface for anyone working with Photoshop and Moho. Enjoy!
In honor of the 2018 World Cup, we are providing you with free content used in our World Cup animation, along with an animation contest!
To celebrate the start of the 2018 World cup, Smith Micro has a surprise for Moho users! If you haven’t watched our World Cup animation yet, check it out below!
Originally published in October 2016, we think Moho users will find this useful to help liven up their pictures with 3D effects.
Originally published in May 2016, we felt it was important to bring this to the surface. As you will see, this can have broad appeal to not only the professional animator, but also to the hobbyist just looking to get started. Happy Animating!
With Moho you can animate just about any object you'd like! Just take a photo of it and go from there! In this post we will show you how to animate your Teddy bear as an example (because we know you still have one)!
Originally published in June 2016, this is another great example of the great tools available in Moho and how easy it is to get started. Okay, maybe 7 seconds is a little ambitious for a new user. But you get the idea! Happy animating!
The Curve Profile tool is a very powerful feature in Moho. It allows you to create and animate complex shapes rather quickly. You might be wondering when this tool comes in handy. Lets use a gear for example, let's say you have to draw a gear using the Curve Profile tool, in just 7 seconds!
This was originally published in May 2016. We thought it was pretty cool and wanted to bring it back to the forefront as it shows the versatility of the Moho application and how different artists are using Moho.
We asked Moho Artist Emanuel Rodriguez to explain how he made his Zen Froggie GIF. And though it may seem like a simple GIF, he explains that the process is a bit more in depth. To accompany his explanation, he also shares a 2 minute time-lapse video of the actual animation process – from conception to completion. Enjoy!
Note: This post was originally published in May 2015 and has been updated for accuracy and relevancy. For example, Anime Studio is now called Moho.
When Chris O’Shea and the team at Cowly Owl had the idea for their game, Monster Mingle, they decided to take advantage of the powerful animation tools in Moho Pro (Anime Studio Pro) in order to create it. With Moho, you can easily create fully animated content for your games, and with its FBX file support, effortlessly import them into Unity. By working with animated files for your game, you are able to achieve expressive, fluid movement that is hard to get otherwise.

The OSCARS® are coming and we’re counting down to see who wins the award for Best Animated Feature Film. Of course, we’re partial to The Breadwinner, since Moho was used in part for the making of the film – read more about that here.
But let’s take a look at the other films nominated in this category (not in any particular order), as there are some really great animated films in the running.
Congratulations to the team at Cartoon Saloon, who has once again produced an Academy Award® nominated film! This year, their film, The Breadwinner, has been nominated for Best Animated Feature Film. Based on the bestselling novel by Deborah Ellis, The Breadwinner tells the story of 11-year-old Parvana who gives up her identity to provide for her family and try to save her father's life.
But why are we so excited? Because Moho was used! In an interview with The Breadwinner director Nora Twomey, she indicates that Moho was specifically used for “the imaginary world…as a rig-based software to mimic cut-out animation.”
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! The holidays are a time filled with cheer, giving, and best of all, animated movies! At Smith Micro, we love animated movies just as much as you do so we wanted to share our top four of all time. Grab your mug of hot coco and get ready!
