  • Del Mar Times: AutoMatters & More: 'Beauty and the Beast'

    Animating Lumiere from Disney's Beauty and the Beast in Moho Pro 12.

    Article Excerpt: "At long last, Disney has produced a live action version of the classic 1991 animated film "Beauty and the Beast." There is a cognitive difference between live action and animated films. Animation leaves much to the imagination, encouraging a suspension of reality that is different from that in a live action film... Retail marketing and cross promotions abound. At the Microsoft Store, customers may have their photo taken with a character from the film in an augmented reality experience, use Microsoft computers to animate Lumiere using Moho Pro 12 and Surface Dial, and color a black & white graphic using "Sketchable."

  • Fast Company - The Surface Studio Story: How Microsoft Reimagined The Desktop PC for Creativity

    Smith Micro's 2D animation software, Moho 12, was one of seven apps that created custom controls for the Surface Dial.

    Article Excerpt: "This was the Surface Dial, a totally new concept to me - if not altogether without precedent. It provides users with an outboard, tactile controller for navigation and selection that would normally be done digitally by tapping on a touch screen... While a mouse's specialty is pointing, the Dial is designed for scrolling and moving quickly through menus... Microsoft will launch the [Surface] Studio with just seven app developer partners that have created custom on-screen Dial controls in their apps." Smith Micro's award winning 2D animation app, Moho 12, is one of these app partners.
