4.0 out of 5 stars Easy set up, easy use April 18, 2011
Verified Purchase
Length: 0:30 Mins
I'm really enjoying this software and the many options it offers. It uploaded easily to my Windows 7 computer and the program recognized my Microsoft HD 5001 webcam right away. I was up and making a video in literally minutes. The program is easy enough that my 6 year old was making her own Little Pet Shops video in a matter of minutes as well. It's extremely user friendly, has a nice help menu, and offers lots of options for movie making, including adding music, title or voice over. Another nice feature is that you have multiple options in which to save your video, including WMV, MPEG1, MPEG2, HD MPEG, and compatible formats for viewing on PSP, ipod, ipad, and iphone. Also you can directly upload to Facebook and Youtube.

The dog-cam that came with the program would not work on my computer, although my husband had no problems with the dog camera on his computer, and I got a response from Honestech Customer Service within 24 hours regarding a question about the dog cam.

Overall, very fun and I'm looking forward to making more videos with my daughter and I would recommend it for all ages.

In my video review, I saved my file in WMV format, then used Sony Vegas 10 HD Platinum to create the movie.

Love it! My 10 year old son and his friends are making the most hilarious movies with his toys. We have downloaded some to Youtube for our friends & family to enjoy. One film was screened at a local talent show! This program is easy to figure out and fun to work with.

5.0 out of 5 stars So much fun, my husband's addicted! December 23, 2010
Verified Purchase
This thing is awesome! My 3-year old son and husband can't stop playing with it! We've only had it two days, and they've already made about 10 movies! We haven't even started using the "green screen" feature yet, they're just too excited to bother. We've posted a few on facebook already and everyone loves the movies, and wants to know where we got the software. We even made a Christmas one, including all of my son's "Super Hero Squad" toys! It's so simple to use, either with the manual frame or the timed frame. You can use ANY music you have on your computer, or use the microphone on your computer to add voices and/or sound effects. Our family highly reccomends this product! =)

4.0 out of 5 stars It does the job! July 30, 2011
I spent the last days trying both Claymation and Dragon softwares, and here are my thoughts:
Claymation does the job. It is very simple to learn and use and produces an excellent final video (avi).

Pro: simple/easy, cheaper

Cons: doesn't support SLRs as input (as Dragon does) and lack of mini usb keyboard support (very useful indeed).

I read some reviews claiming that Dragon support is good. I'm afraid I have to disagree. I wasn't able to use Dragon in my laptop since it depends on an Internet connection to validate the trial use, but somehow it doesn't find the internet connection preventing me to use the software. I tried the support, and I have a ticket opened there for almost a month without any response.... So I had to try Dragon on my wife's netbook (worked there), but I'm very disappointed with Dragon support.

As I don't intend to use SLRs anyway, and Dragon doesn't work on my PC, my choice is Claymation.

4.0 out of 5 stars great product, but one problem March 10, 2011
By larry
Verified Purchase
it's a fun product but only one problem. the doggy cam captures with the program being able to edit inbetween already captured frames but after it's first use the cam loses contrast and slighty fades in color. so i'm giving it a rating of 4 out of 5 as it is a great product for kids and for anybody with a fun imagination.

5.0 out of 5 stars Encourages Creativity August 8, 2012
Verified Purchase
I purchased the Claymation Studio 3.0 for my daughter's 11th birthday. She has had a blast making her own animated skits on her computer with her toys. Lots of fun, easy to use. The dog camera that comes with the kit is cute and works pretty good. She figured out how to use the software by herself and spends hours creating adventures for her Lego's and other toys. She said it was one of the best birthday presents she received. Packaging is very good, the item was delivered quickly.

My nine year old son loves to use this on his own to make little films of his Lego Creations. He's busy for hours and he found it easy to use. Next, he will be learning the more advanced options in the software.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Man Who Falls Down September 29, 2012
Length: 0:26 Mins
So I am looking around for a program for me and my daughter to do together on a computer and I came across this about a year ago and has been in my saved for later in my shopping cart. I didn't buy it from here but everything is the same. The software was easy to install and any web cam I had would work. The software is very simple to use and its enough to get a general interest and know how. Since we are beginners to stop motion this is a awesome start for us. We continue to discuss our possibilities and ideas got future movies. Though she is five she loves to see her toys and dolls come to life. The one issue is the amount of pictures you have to take to get a good smooth video is a test of patience and especially for a five year old. The software runs good on my laptop or desktop and both have a couple years on them. The biggest thing is how much resources your web cam takes away to whether or not your image is gonna be choppy on the program. You can set whatever resolution your camera offers to make your pictures with. I can't say enough about how easy it was to use and start right away.

First off the bad and the major thing being the dog camera. Its I think around 640 by 480 and my daughter dropped it once and it no longer will focus and offers a blurred image. Its great if you keep it working and its kind of an attraction to get my daughter involved. Second thing being the software is a little limiting in what you can actually put in the movie such as effects. Not a big deal and thats really my nit picks and its perfectly suffice for my daughter since she doesn't care about anything on the technical side. We still have to use the program to get our shots and the onion skin effect is pretty awesome to work with. Plus I make a really rough version of movies with it.
