Absolutely brilliant fun though and quite easy to learn. Son loves it, though we are having problems with the cord that goes from the camera to the computer – suspect it is his misuse rather than a fault. Absolutely brilliant fun though and quite easy to learn.
Bought one for an xmas gift, will now buy another for myself. Bought this for my son who spends most of his time either playing on his nintendo ds or reading books. I knew this could be a tough hobby to get him into, and as a visual communication lecturer, i also understand how time consuming animation maybe before you get great results. Really easy to use, and the camera is really quite good. The ability to select several frames and copy and paste reversing their order is just like the higher end software you get. You can lay several sounds onto one film. The only drawback so far is you can’t have several movies overlapping and fading into each other. But for the price, and the fact that certain limitations can actually make you more creative, this product is an excellent gift for anyone who wants to tinker into the world of animation.
Hue animation is great fun for everyone who likes watching, creating and using animation. It is different to i can animate a lot as hue animation contains an area in which you can record sounds and speech for your animation. Stop-frame-animation is extremely time consuming and very delicate and fragile, one tiny knock or touch of a model and the whole thing could be ruined. Patience is the key with this new animation kit, it provides you with cd with useful tips and ideas for an awesome hue movie. It would also be possible for your movie to be put on facebook or youtube. All in all it is worth buying, it does not contain plasticine however, but that doesen’t matter as you may use paper drawings to become your own little moving characters to star in movies you can treasure forever.
My 9 year old just loves this present. It was soooooo easy to set up and use. She hasn’t stopped making characters, scenery etc. We use an old shoebox as the ‘set’. In fact, we are all in the films so great family fun too.
We bought this for our 9 year old, it’s very easy to use and both our children have enjoyed making short animations with it. We helped them with the first animation: http://youtu. Be/ureqhigcuiqb they were then able to use it well enough to start making short animations by themselves.
HUE Animation Studio (Blue) for Windows PCs and Apple Mac OS X: complete stop motion animation kit with camera, software and book : The perfect present great fun for hours. Always at a loss to find presents that are educational, yet fun for the grandchildren. At last something that fits the bill, this animation studio is great, the kids love it and have spent hours making short animated films, we have all been entertained and amused by the resulting films. Both the five year old and the eleven year old enjoy it equally (even caught the adult experimenting with it).
