When you want animate a picture book in Moho (formally known as Anime Studio) you first need to edit the original illustration in Photoshop. First you need to decide which parts of the scene need to be animated. Then make different layers of the characters you want to animate. If you want to use dialogue in the scene you will need different mouth shapes. When you have finished in Photoshop export your file as a PSD. Then you can import the PSD in Moho. Choose individually, then all of the layers will be exported separately. Then you can setup your character, using bones. Or for simpler animations you can also animate with the transform tool. Photoshop I did all the editing of the illustration in Photoshop 2015 and I am now using Photoshop 2017. Photoshop is part of Adobe Creative Cloud. It is available in the total Creative Cloud plan, or you can choose to go for a single license.
