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!
As an indie game developer, character designer, and animator, I was happy when I discovered Moho. But coming from an Adobe background, getting around Moho wasn’t easy for me in the beginning. However, after using the program for awhile, I figured out how to do things, and how to improve my work — and my workflow.

Since the release of Moho™ 12, we have continued working to improve it. We've listened to user feedback and have added many new features to the software. This FREE update for Moho Pro 12 and Moho Debut 12 owners includes fixes, improvements and new features which help to have a more consistent work flow.

We asked you all to share some of your favorite Halloween inspired art with us. There were so many great submissions, but we could only choose a few. Here are seven of our favorite spooktacularly scary digital creations (in no particular order), hope you enjoy them as much as we did!
The new Smart Warp is one of the most exciting features included in the most recent release of 2D animation software, Moho Pro 12. This feature is powerful, yet so easy to use. It allows you to create a mesh and use it to animate images in any way you want.
At the launch event for Microsoft’s new Surface Studio, Smith Micro showcased enhancements to its award-winning 2D animation software, Moho™ 12 (formerly Anime Studio®). The latest release includes new features optimized to work with Microsoft’s groundbreaking new Surface Dial, which makes it faster and easier to create complex animations.

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. I then spent one evening actually building the puppet and animating it.
