This Moho (Anime Studio) competition is open to everyone. The competition starts on the 1st January 2017 and runs until the 31st January 2017. Voting will end on 28th February 2017 GMT. The full competition rules can be found at the bottom of the submission form (you must be logged in to view).
How long does the animation have to be?
It depends on the competition. If there are limits, they will be stated clearly in the description. Try to aim for more than 10 seconds of animation if there are no stated limits.
Does the character have to be fully rigged?
No. You only need as much character rigging as required to create your animation.
Does the file have to be shared under a Creative Commons licence?
When you upload your file you are given the choice on how you would like to share it. The Attribution-NonCommercial licence is the recommended, but if it contains commercial material/s, then you may select the 'retain full copyright' option.
Is there a submission fee?
No. The competition is 100% free for everyone to enter.
Can I enter more than once?
Yes! You can submit as many files as you like, but please upload each file individually.
How do I include a video of the animation in my entry?
Before you submit your entry, please first upload your video to YouTube. Then in the description of your competition entry, click the YouTube icon and insert the video ID (11 digits). Please get in contact if you need help with this.
Can you upload my entry and video for me?
Yes. The upload form is very easy to use, but if you do need help then please get in contact. We can add the rendered video to our YouTube account but it's recommended you do this so you get some followers. Please make sure you have an account here on Anime Studio Tutor before you submit your entry or contact us.
Do I need to own a copy of Anime Studio to enter?
If you do not own a copy of Anime Studio Debut or Pro, then you may use a demo version to create your entry. Demo versions will create a watermark on renders, so please get in contact if you would like us to amend your preview image.
Do I have to create everything in Anime Studio?
Unless the competition states otherwise, you may create backgrounds or character images in other programs, such as Photoshop, ArtRage, Gimp etc. or even hand draw them and then use bones, layers, points or other methods within Anime Studio for all animation.
You must not import pre-rendered animation from another program (video or a sequence) as this will not qualify.
Can I use a video editor?
You should try and do as much as possible in Anime Studio including adding sounds and titles. But if you need to, you may join your rendered Anime Studio scenes in a video editor, but please don't add any special effects in the editor.
Do I have to create the artwork myself?
Yes. It's part of the competition. Character design and animation is what we're looking for. Please don't just copy or trace other people's work. You can use existing work as an inspiration but please credit those artists/creators if you do.
What are people voting on?
People will vote for various reasons, but we encourage users to look for: Creativity, Originality, Character design, Quality of animation and Technical use of Anime Studio
