About me:

home made cartoon non-sense - when I was very young, I thought it would be great to direct my own movies - I could picture how I wanted the scenes ordered and framed - and now with programs like Anime Studio I can actually be in charge of all the producing and directing my heart ever desired

    admin- I had to either remove my video or allow it to be monetized by someone according to their claim on the musics copyright. I got the music from a site that claimed there was no copyright, but the way to contest the copyright claim on Youtube looked too difficult to deal with, and could possibly have resulted in a "strike" against me, so I removed the video. I am reworking it with new music.

    I saw your "shadow" comment and see that you have Moho Pro12, so it should be fairly easy to do (perhaps a little work, but not too hard).
    moho pro 11 features - around minute 16 in this video – layer referencing could be used to easily create shadows that follow your characters – just change the reference layer to the color you want your shadow to be

  • Webinar: How to Apply the Principles of Animation

    30 April 2017 at 12:03:06 AM
    Great overview of basics that animations should follow and that animators should try to attain. When Sr. Paredes speaks about many actions being too "slow" in many cartoons, I have noticed that tendancy in my own work, and have learned to playback many times before the final render so that none of the action seems unusual for the intended purpose. Great to see this tutorial from an expert.
