About this Course

Have you triedáto learn Moho but gottenástuck? áWell, you're not the onlyáone -- I've been where you are now.

Maybe youátriedápiecingátogether YouTube videos but couldn't findáwhere to begin or theáorder in whicháto watch them

Maybe youátried other online video courses but found they wereáoutdated (no longer matched your version of the software), were too specific oráwayátoo advanced

Maybe you tried an introductory course which was niceábut it was too short

I created this course to specifically address these issues. áThey areáwhat I viewed as a gaping holeáin the previously available body of Moho knowledge; namely, a decent introduction.

This course provides a detailed, easy to follow introduction to the latest version ofáMoho Debut and Pro, version 12á(notáAnime Studio 11, 10, 9...). áThis introduction is 8 hours in length (not oneáhour) because itáaddressesáall the phases of 2D developmentáusing Moho (not justáone phase) including:

  • Illustration
  • Rigging
  • Animation

It even includes a lengthy section on lip syncing a character manually and using a semi-automated process based on the freeáPapagayo product from Smith Micro.

Though this course is for beginners it delves into advanced topics such as:

  • Smart Bones
  • Reference Layers
  • Target Bones

After completing this course, you'll know Moho very well. áYou'll certainly be able to tackle more advanced YouTube lectures to honeáyour skills to perfection.
