The Making of an Animated GIF in Moho - Updated

Posted by Smith Micro Blogger on Mar 28, 2018 11:31:00 AM


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!

Unity and Moho (Anime Studio) Pro: The Making of the Monster Mingle App

Posted by Smith Micro Blogger on Mar 8, 2018 12:06:00 PM

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.
