Not me! I know absolutely ZIPPO about computer animation. What I DO know is that this program is a blast! It's very simple to use, intuitive, and makes ME feel like I understand how to create animation!
I would go much more into detail, however my 12 yr old granddaughter saw this and took it home with her! She sat down with her laptop in my living room, and within 10 minutes was creating much better animation that I had done. She absolutely LOVES it! This would make an awesome gift for a teen.
It's not a professional program, nor is it meant to be. But as an introduction to the joys of computer animation, it completely succeeds.
The program isn't at fault. You can set joints and manipulate them, there are included textures and body parts and mouths, and it's very straightforward to move, frame by frame (similar to an audio editor like Audacity) and change what each of these segments do. There are a couple of samples that make it pretty easy to tell how to pace.
However, very little of the animating is automated. You have to painstakingly adjust what your characters are doing.
I also have Adobe Flash, so I want to note that it's quite clear Anime Studio Debut 7 is a much easier and straightforward way to make cartoons. But you still have to do quite a bit of work to get results that are anywhere near the demonstrations. It will take time. Don't buy this program expecting it to be a piece of cake... buy this program expecting it to make it possible for you to animate. This program's main benefit is that it takes much less skill. You don't really need any computer skill beyond the most basic... you just need patience. Imagine you have a stop motion camera and some models that you need to manipulate from frame to frame. This serves as extremely good and easy to make models. You still have to do the manipulation.
The program was reliable and I think it's fun to use. Don't interpret my remarks as negative... this is great software. Just keep your expectations realistic.
Realize that nothing will provide you with patience and artistic talent, and both are required for making cartoons in any medium. But if you want to see if you can make popular internet cartoons, I would buy this to find out, instead of investing a lot, only to find that you think it is too much work.

** Installation, Inspection and Tech Support (or, lack thereof)
* Almost a year ago, I received and reviewed Anime Studio Debut 6. At the time, I mentioned that it was an entry-level animation software that was a good buy despite its limitations and high learning curve.
I mentioned that ASD was, in my opinion, a strip-down version of Adobe's Flash and Illustrator software but at "95% off." What they needed to do, I suggested, was to simplify the interface and provide proper tutorials on how the software works because the 3 two-minute tutorials were woefully insufficient. They did somewhat better this time offering two instruction manuals in pdf and a series of vignette tutorials on what the tools do. Herein lies the problem. Unless you're into silly nonsense like dancing stars and bouncing balls, you don't have any clue as to what the program can do. So, this year I decided to take a very big leap to see just how well the software works in connection with what they ("Smith Micro") say their product can do. I gave myself a small project: to make a 3 minute cartoon. The software totes itself as being able to make traditional 2D cartoons as well as "jig jag" -- a mixture of photographs and illustrations. The software DOESN'T work as it should. This cartoon is basically what I had in mind if I could just use Anime Studio alone. Since it's incapable of utilizing jpg's, and only has one (1) audio channel, I was forced to use four other softwares to get close to what I thought ASD-7 should do by itself.
** I installed the software and didn't do any work on it for a week while I poured over the User Manual and the Quick Start Guide and video tutorials.Read more ›
