What is it
HUE Animation Studio contains everything that a budding animator needs to learn to create stop motion animation videos. The animation software has been specifically designed for educational use, with a user friendly, fully-featured interface.
Children of all ages can create their own stop motion films. You can animate anything you can see using stop motion techniques; drawings, toys, household objects and even real people. Modelling clay is great to use as it can be shaped into anything you can imagine, but if you want to try something more ambitious there are no limitations!

What our experts think
Children loved making their own videos, and experimenting with different methods such as using photos of themselves dancing, drawing pictures and modelling play dough.
The freedom of choice encourages children to be creative, and they can also use their imaginations to think up stories for their films. They can then narrate their films, helping children develop their speech and language skills.
It was also great to see children discussing how many frames per second would be best for their video, as this shows a developing interest in technology and filmmaking.
It would be even better if...
A parent may need to install the software before children use the studio, but this is quite easy to do.
