Update #5

Software how-to video

Comment

I've been getting some great feedback from people who have been using the new software. Its been really easy and they've gotten a start on making their own movies so they'll be ready when their Animator arrives. 

I'm posting a little how-to video showing the Animator software in use which you might find helpful. You can see an HD version of the how-to video by clicking the link at our software page:
