New Feature for Moho Pro 12
Enhanced Freehand Drawing Tools
Freehand tools have been hugely improved, giving more accuracy and creating less points.
Get more design control with customizable vector Bezier handles. Create unique line bends with fewer points and optimized for animation
Create custom meshes that can bend, shape, twist and animate assets. Works for both images and vectors and can be used with Smart Bones
Realistic Motion Blur
A new setting allows for true motion blur. Control the amount of frames and blend. Apply to any moving asset for instant results
Animate Multiple Layers at the Same Time
Get MORE done by editing multiple layers on the timeline in Moho™ 12. No more jumping back and forth between layers for complex tasks
Add one point bones to alter, move and reshape assets in fun new ways. Combine with traditional bones for more complex animations. Works with both vectors and images
Icons are bolder, the library and layers panels have been revamped and a new backend panel allows for easy color and brightness customization
Share actions with other rigs! Export an action to use later or import it into another rig. As long as the rig has a similar structure, your action will work
And much more!
Moho™ offers the most powerful 2D rigging system and mix it with frame by frame, Particles, Physics and many other features. Get professional results for animation or games easier and faster
Revolutionary Smart Bones
Smart Bones is an incredible feature that reduces or entirely removes distortion around your character's joints - specifically around knees and elbows. Group a set of points and use the Smart Bones control levers to create 3D looking motion that you can easily repeat with the turn of a dial.
Several major enhancements have been made to Moho's bone features. The new bone constraints feature will include rigging options that will help set up characters that are more complex and powerful.
FBX Support for Unity, Game Developers
Unity game developers and users will now be able to use FBX support of animated 2D content in Moho Pro, eliminating the need to create rigid sprites for game development and providing the ability to get the exact look and feel that they want. FBX, the adaptable file format for 3D animation from Autodesk®, is the most common method for integrating animated 2D and 3D assets in Unity
Import Photoshop Files
Import your existing Photoshop files with all layers intact. Changes made in Photoshop instantly appear in the imported file in Anime Studio, allowing you to continually refine your Photoshop document. Many Photoshop features are supported in the imported PSD files, including blending modes, layer opacity, smart objects and smart filters. Groups are also supported and can be set up in Photoshop to automatically get imported into Moho Pro as switch layers for quick animating
Bounce, Elastic and Stagger Interpolation
applying the Bounce keyframe type to the timeline, any object interpolated will appear to bounce, all within two keyframes.
Elastic provides a rubber band effect, making objects spring back and forth before reaching their end point. Settings can be adjusted for each of these interpolation types to change the amount of times the object bounces, the intensity and more.
Stagger creates the effect that the animation is stuttering or staggering between two keyframes. No additional keyframes are created for this effect. This is great if you want to create the effect a character is having issue lifting a heavy object
Real Time Media Connection
The new Real Time Media Connection in Moho Pro automatically updates image, movie and audio files in your imported Anime Studio files when edited in an external program. This is a great workflow enhancement for individuals and production studios alike.
Separate Render Process
The Batch Exporter and Renderer are now performed as a separate process. Even if you quit from Anime Studio Pro, the render process continues until the job is completed
You can now preview animations before committing to rendering. By going up to File > Preview Animation, a small video file will be created allowing you to view the animation, with no dropped frames, as it appears in workspace mode. While this method should not be used for final exports, you can take these files and save them elsewhere on your computer or even share them with others if needed. This can cut down tremendously on trial and error when animating and save lots of time, which is invaluable for creative projects
When moving an object forward and back in Z, Depth Shifting is an option to preserve its apparent size. Moho Pro does this by automatically applying the proper amount of scale. This can be used to arrange landscapes
The 64-bit Windows version of Moho Pro will now use Media Foundation. It is no longer necessary to install QuickTime to import popular audio and video formats like MP3, AAC, MP4, and QuickTime. When exporting animations on Windows 7 and higher, the application can create movies using the Windows Media Foundation media library
Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) Acceleration takes advantage of your computer's hardware, boosting performance and quality for several layer types while allowing you to see exactly what the tool is doing as you apply a stroke or shape to the Workspace. The performance boost will help reduce pixelation and artifacting when working with certain graphical elements, such as Vector and Image layers.
Random Line Width Refined
In previous versions of Moho, random line width could prove to be a bit jarring from point to point.
Nested Layer Controls
Previously, bones could only control their direct children. Now, bones can control the children of their children. If you have a group inside a bone layer and then vector layers inside that group, the bone layer can manipulate the artwork in those vector layers if nested layer control is turned on. This allows for more powerful rigging options, while simultaneously simplifying and allow more organization in the layer hierarchy.
Flexi-Binding allows you to isolate the influence of a set of bones from the rest of the skeleton. For example, only the right arm bones should affect the artwork for the right arm. This lessens (or eliminates) the need to separate artwork on frame zero, and then put it back together again with the Offset Bone tool. This is a great new feature for images and vectors.
Adjustable Particle Source
With Particle Layers, you can now use any shape, even ones that contain gaps, as an origin point for your particles.
Enhanced Depth of Field
ow when you create a Depth of Field effect through the Project Settings, you will get a visual representation of where your focus will be on the Workspace by using the Orbit Tool. This is a great addition if you have a hard time remembering what the settings for Depth of Field will do to change the effect.
More scripting access and control. Moho Pro offers advanced scripting support and updates. More functions and data structures of the program have been exposed through the scripting API, allowing advanced technical users to create more personalized tools and add-ons.
Export multiple layers individually with one click. Layer comps are useful if you want to export only selected items in your scene so that you can composite them externally in third party software.
Flexible Import and HD Export Capabilities
Anime Studio can import several kinds of other media files into an animation project. Import QuickTime®, AVI or MPEG-4 video or even 3D scenes from Poser. Image Based Modeling allows you to create 3D objects from 2D vector layers. And the included Content Library contains hundreds of ready to use characters, props and more.
Patch Layers were designed for constructing characters and are similar to masks by allowing you to hide certain parts of a layer. Create each body part separately and then hide the overlapping lines. Adjust the size of the patch to perfectly blend the layers to get the desired style.
Moho Pro is a 64 bit application. Improvements in speed and memory will be noticed by all those who use 64 bit machines. Improve rendering speeds and preview performance.
Take notes and make comments on the timeline for future reference.
Hide and see only the bones that you currently need.
Image Cropping Tool
Crop your images easily and directly in Anime Studio.
Easily copy layers and content from one document to another.
Copy and Paste Keyframes
Copy and paste keyframes and animations from one layer to another or even to another document.
