Features of Easy Studio - Animate with Shapes!:
This animation studio is fabulous for children of all ages, it has 2 main modes: Easy & Expert.
The EASY mode has 6 learning levels. They are designed to practically teach how an animation is constructed, while your child makes it.
Move the shapes from the bottom into the correct places in the picture and take a 'photo' using the camera symbol. The outline or guide shows where each shape is to be moved to next. Move all the shapes and take the next picture. Continue with this process until you have finished the tutorial and have created your movies.
The EXPERT mode is free create using the same principles. You have a large range of shapes to choose from. You can change the colour, size, rotation of objects as well as the background colour.
You have full control over which shapes in your animation move, where to and how far.
There are no 'tutorial' guide boxes to move your shapes into.
My sons are really enjoying this, it is wonderful to see them creating their own movies. They are truly delighted to see their stories, creations and inventions come to life!
Animation is a skill that young children are not expected to know, Easy Studio puts animation even into the hands of toddlers!
10 out of 10!
When your child first tries expert ensure they remember to take a photo in between moving their shapes around!
I recommend completing the tutorial mode with your child before trying Expert. This consolidates the animation technique.
