We are very excited to announce that the Moho 2D animation software has been acquired by Lost Marble LLC, the company founded by Mike Clifton, the original creator of Moho, and Victor Paredes, Supervisor of Moho animation at Cartoon Saloon and former Moho Product Manager.

Great news this, it has been withering on the vine at Smith Micro. I think we here as CW users can empatise with this :D

The CARTOON SALOON is a fantastic animation company based in Kilkenny, Ireland

Back in the hands of the people who care most is never a bad thing... This is all new to me, so I have no knowledge of history but been having a lot of fun with things.

Odd turn of events for me... are you familiar with Reallusion? Corel (of all people) had "Crazy Talk" (LEGACY product - you do NOT want this, since Cartoon Animator 4 has everything it does) in their store, but that made me go take a look at Reallusion. The 3D stuff (iClone and Character Creator) piqued my interest, but found out quick that I needed to learn Blender to make props. Not necessarily terrible, but certainly not a quick path to anything. After a couple weeks of this I went back to look at their 2D Cartoon Animator 4 in more detail, and looks like they stole the bones (literally, they added the same bone layouts) from MOHO for their last upgrade. I did not get the LEAP (hand control) package (yet, but their 50% off sale goes through 4 JAN), but did get the bundle with the Face3D tracker, and that little gem is awesome (tracks your face on a webcam to record animations). They are constantly making it easier and easier to just create on a computer... just made me respect the Disney animators of old manually flipping through frames, when today you can do what took them months in "real time" and lip sync audio to boot. Unreal what you can do these days...

@mettelus Yes I also have all the Reallusion stuff inc Iclone and Cartoon Animator 4. Only issue with reallusion stuff is alot of its functionality is geared toward there own content .. trying to get you to buy.

MOHO s a truer 2D animation application and is around alot longer than Reallusion stuff. And does not depend on trying to flog you content.

yes i use Blender, have done so for years .. along with Lightwave, Realsoft 3D, MODO, Truespace back in the day and ZBrush and VUE
