I am curious if moho 12 is worth the upgrade?

I know it has smart wrap for images...but other programs offer that too and it doesn't look very easy even for what I am doing.

Does it handle my thousands layers better than 11?

Does it have any unlisted features that are really useful?

I remember looking between Anime Studio Pro 10 and 11 when before I got it when Anime Studio Pro 11 was the newest. 11 was very superior.

This is something really only you can answer. Download a trial and test it for yourself. I'm a notorious tightwad, and I upgraded (after some initial reluctance!). I'm just a hobbyist, so the outlay was difficult for me to justify as well, but I wouldn't go back...

IMO Moho 12 is NOT any better at handling files with millions of layers than AS11 (I've run your dragons in 11 and 12 - no real difference there -- performance difference is down to the hardware I used not the software). So if that would be your only motivation to upgrade, don't. But 12 is a significant advance in drawing tools - freehand is better and it has Bezier handles; plus the new animation support - IMO worth it for those. But I agree with John that only you can assess the value of those to you ...

I am mostly curious because the upgrade on sale right now. I downloaded the trail but I am not really finding anything that I feel I really have to have.

I also have a different program called crazytalk animator 3 (it was on sell) which has some image warp abilities. Its very weird because the layer can wrap onto itself somehow. I don't Know how to use crazytalk animator 3 yet haven't even sat down and played with it because new programs are frustrating. lol. Anyway I always planned to get this other program for simple scenes. Anime Studio 11 was for the complexed scenes. I think of Crazytalk like the original iMovie (the good useful one) its does simple stuff quickly. I think of Anime Studio like Final Cut Pro, It does amazing stuff and has unlimited abilities but it can take longer.

I tried out the new MOHO and found out the Bezier handles are nice and also the drawing improvements but not over $60 dollars worth for an upgrade. Thanks but no thanks till the price is lowered. Just my opinion no reason to reply unless you know the price is going down, and I doubt it will.
