5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome fun and professional quality results! February 16, 2011
Format:CD-ROM|Verified Purchase
I've had so much fun making animated shorts! It's become my main hobby lately, and with this software you can produce animations that are as good as the pros (if you have some experience/knowledge of story, design, and graphics especially). Warning: As with any powerful software program, there is a learning curve here. The first few hours you will find yourself floundering around and getting pretty angry... and even once you start to get the hang of things, you will make mistakes or find yourself wondering why things haven't worked out... But once you've put in your time, the sky is the limit! Things become very easy and intuitive with some practice. And the software gives you a lot of power. Anime Studio 7 is awesome! I'm so excited with the movies I've made.

I'm just doing this for fun and as a creative outlet, but after seeing my initial results, I'm beginning to have some aspirations to make things other people would actually want to watch. I will say, though, that I think even true professionals would find this software to be excellent.

I have a couple suggestions for new users:
1. Until you really to get to know your way around, an easy way to learn is to play with the characters that come pre-loaded. Practice moving them, sizing them, transforming and turning them, adding sounds (you can even have the mouth move automatically with your recordings--look for tutorials on youtube to learn how (youtube user: contentparadise, if I remember correctly). Get accustomed to "bones" "switches" and "layers" and "keyframes".

2. Workflow and Rendering: You might want to make your longer movies in segments (in fact, I did about 20 different files with 30 seconds each to make a short movie)...

If you like the idea of making animations, but are not looking to invest a great deal of cash into tinkering around, this program seems like a good solution.

I think the potential output most similarly resembles the PBS version of "The Cat in the Hat" cartoon series. Cute, but kind of flat looking.

The "bones" are probably standard for many animation programs, but a new concept to me. It's neat.

I don't think the audio editing software is quite adequate, but it works well enough. The drawing tools are pretty rudimentary.

Rendering times can vary -- if you add a lot of the special effects, it'll take a lot longer to render. And you can't really see what the effects actually look like until they're rendered.

The 3-D is interesting, but don't think you're going to be making Toy Story. And the physics engine is a lot of fun to play with.

The other thing I didn't think worked well was the import of drawings done outside of the program -- like in Adobe Illustrator. I think there were way too many points on the lines, which bogged down the performance.

Face and mouth movements are resolved in an interesting manner. It's seems almost like stop-motion animation than traditional 2-D concepts.

This program is not going to draw your characters, do you movements, or write your script, but it is a very good tool for creating interesting animations.

5.0 out of 5 stars It Rocks! April 18, 2011
By RAZZ
Format:CD-ROM|Verified Purchase
You still have to know animation. That said, this program works better then I had hoped. I bought the Debut 6 version for some computer savvy kids, and they are going great guns with some entertaining shorts. Anybody can have fun with this program out of the box, and it has the funtions you can grow into. Best software I have for animating. I'm a convert from Flash.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Program January 11, 2012
By Dayman
Format:CD-ROM|Verified Purchase
This is an awesome program for anyone looking to create there own animated shorts. Itr is in depth enough to interest people who have been doing animation for years and at the same time simple enough to pick up the your begginner could make some semi decent cartoons as well. Whether your experienced with animation or not i reccomend checking out this sight before oredering the product and watching a few tutorials to see if you like how the program is set up.
( cartoonlearning.com )

The lip sync feature is not as fluid as i would like but if you are making a simple cartoon it will get the job done, the program also offers point animation which can allow you to do almost anything you can think of as far as animation creation. But if you dont want to control every point of your character the "Bones" feature is a great tool.

Last but not least, if you are going to buy the old version like i did because you dont want to spend 200 dollars on version 8 for its few new features (though the 3D camera looks amazing!) don't buy debut, Pro will save you hundreds of hours in the long run which allows you to save and apply "skins" to all your layers at once rather than each piece individually.

Actually heres the final thing....make a Frankenstein character and save it as a generic character with as many options as you can think of as far as animation (mad eyes, sad eyes ect) than save, copy file, and you have a templet for creating 1000s of characters from one generic character instead of starting over every time.

BUY THIS PRODUCT...ITS AWESOME....
