Renowned Animator Mike Scott Releases Never-Before-Seen "The Anime-tors" Anime Video Using New and Exclusive Tools From Anime Studio Pro 8

ALISO VIEJO, CA - The Smith Micro Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMSI) Productivity and Graphics Group today announced the release of its highly anticipated Anime Studio® Pro 8, the all-in-one solution that enables professional artists to quickly bring their imagination to life. With this release, Anime Studio Pro 8 expands its animation capabilities with new Automatic Image Tracing tools, Real Time Media Connection, and Global Rendering Styles. Mike Scott's world-premier "The Anime-tors" video showcases the Anime Studio Pro advanced toolset.

"Anime Studio is the most advanced and versatile software tool I've worked with," said Mike Scott, an independent animation director whose work includes the award-winning Goldfish music videos, as well as animated shorts, designs, and cartoons. "I am a big fan of the mass-retaining, squash-and-stretch, and bone-rigging functionality. Version 8 handles animation cycles more simply and with a greater deal of control and efficiency during my design process."

Anime Studio is a leading animation solution that provides artists with the cutting-edge tools and latest techniques necessary to produce popular styles of animated 2D movies, cartoons, and cutout animations for film, television, web, video games, advertising, and more.
