Ratings and Reviews
Great application for animator!! This application helps a lot in terms of animation, however it really depends on the user’s luck. Out of 10 times, I have been able to make the connection works once. It has useful features and easy to use though. I wish the connection improves as I have done everything troubleshooting says. The price is fair for this smart software. I wish I can get the best of it.
As much as I want to like this software, I cannot get beyond using the ‘face’ that comes with the included Blend file. The instructions included in the description are very basic and really do not help someone new to this. The videos in this are in Japanese, so if you are a non-native speaker they aren’t much help (translation in the closed captioning is very poor.) After writing the developer a few times, he stated that he is ‘busy’ and would not be answering anymore of my emails (not much help for noobs such as myself.) There doesn’t seem to be a community out there that utilizes this software where one can go for answers. Other software in this genre may be more expensive, but if you are new to these types of software and looking for something that has a reasonable amount of support and documentation, this is probably not the one you want.
It’s quite frustrating to use because of how inconsistent the behavior is. Some times it works perfect with no lag, other times it slows down considerably and not even a full iPad restart can fix it. I haven’t figured out what causes the slowdowns or how to fix them when they happen. I use this to stream and I’m trying to find another app to replace this one so I don’t have to mess with it during the stream all the time. When it does work, it does work well, however.
