Bought this for my son who spends most of his time either playing on his Nintendo ds or reading books. I knew this could be a tough hobby to get him into, and as a visual communication lecturer, I also understand how time consuming animation maybe before you get great results. But it's great! Really easy to use, and the camera is really quite good. The ability to select several frames and copy and paste reversing their order is just like the higher end software you get. You can lay several sounds onto one film! The only drawback so far is you can't have several movies overlapping and fading into each other. Hey! But for the price, and the fact that certain limitations can actually make you more creative, this product is an EXCELLENT gift for anyone who wants to tinker into the world of animation!

Here is the first animation made by my daughter, she and her friends have had hours of fun making simple short films. The bendy camera is perfect as you can position it however you like. The software is very child friendly just press a button and you're away... beware, started off making little plasticine models but now nothing in the house is safe from being in her animated films - recommended

My 9 year old just LOVES this present. It was soooooo easy to set up and use. She hasn't stopped making characters, scenery etc. We use an old shoebox as the 'set'! In fact, we are all in the films so great family fun too. Love making up new voices!!! Excellent product!!!!!!!

I have been wanting to try my had at stop motion for a while. All these ideas that I have but have never got around to trying.

I saw that this is mainly aimed at children and schools, but works fine on my laptop. You get the program to load onto your computer, the camera (in a verity of colours to chose from) and even some different coloured plasticine so that you can make your own characters!

The camera is on a flexible neck so you can get different positions. It does not have the zoom capability (you actually have to move the camera closer to the item! Cheek.) but you can focus it. I know that sounds obvious, but you never know with these things.

It takes a bit of time to load it on, then you have to go to their website and authenticate your purchase, then you get the full (I think) programme.

It is reasonable easy to set up once all is done, plug in the camera, load it up using the short cut and off you go. I will admit that ut is annoying that every time that you load it up it defaults to my webcam for the camera, but under "Camera" at the top you just select the Hue camera and there it is.

The programme itself is very basic. You have a verity of colours (all of 6!) to edit the finished movie, one frame at a time by the way, but if you are just doing very basic stop motion, or stop motion that you done want to edit then this one is fine.

It does have a recording capability when editing so you can add voiced or sounds effects to the finished item if you so wish.

All in all this is a great way to get into stop motion. And with the huge amount of free video editing software available on the new then you can just move your movie made on this software into them, and edit them with more cutting edge techniques.

I would defiantly recommend this to anyone who would like to get into stop motion. I have thoroughly enjoyed it.

My children aged 6 (girl) and 9 (boy) love theirs. This is the coolest toy for your children for christmas 2010 and beyond, it allows them to be able to have computer time, arts and crafts time, and really use their imagination, and no fighting as they can all create their animation and be the camera controller. Not much space it needed. If going away for the holidays, it takes up no space to take with you, and you can use it with anyone else's computer and a little modelling plasticine, or clay. Young and old can master this unique toy, and for under £50.00 it is definitely one for all the family's stocking. Nephews, nieces godchildren, one each!! The bonus is we bought one for a friend and now the two 9 year olds also talk to each other and play funny games with the camera and skype.

Regards

Always at a loss to find presents that are educational, yet fun for the grandchildren. At last something that fits the bill, this animation studio is great, the kids love it and have spent hours making short animated films, we have all been entertained and amused by the resulting films.

Both the five year old and the eleven year old enjoy it equally (even caught the adult experimenting with it).

HUE Animation Studio contains everything that you need to create your own stop motion animation videos....

The kit was easy to set up....It was just a case of putting the CD in the laptop and going through the setup process....It took a few minutes and then we were ready to go.... In fact it took us longer to decide where to put the camera and scene than to set the programme up....lol The camera looks very funky and was easy to move due to it's flexible neck but we positioned it on a stool....We positioned our Lego Castle in front of the camera and got started on making our first animation...We put our characters out, pressed the space bar to take the photo, moved them, took another photo and repeated until we had finished....It was so simple to do! The girls didn't need much instruction once I had explained it to them.....

The first video we made lasted 16 seconds but it took us a good half hour to make....It wasn't a problem we had great fun but it just goes to show how much work goes in to making the films and TV shows we see using this type of animation.....

Everything worked like it should and most importantly it was a lot of fun to use.....Everything about it is child friendly and my girls who are 7 & 12 understood it....The only issue I had was that when using the programme it automatically defaulted to my webcam and not the HUE camera....Just a quick click of the mouse to change the camera fixed that...

We still have a lot to learn and features to use but I can see us getting a lot of use out of the HUE Animation Studio
