" I don't think I would have stuck with animation if I hadn't had the use of the SMP program that my university uses, for my first animation. The onion skinning and play back features within SMP are so easy to use that I found myself becoming quite ambitious and really getting into the production, without having to get too far into the technical side of animation too early on. I was also able to get a better understanding of what animation really is and what can be achieved. I am now at a stage where I need to use more of the technical side of SMP, and hopefully continue with a smooth learning curve. " - Jennifer Penny, an animator / filmmaker who studied at the University of the West of England (Bristol), Stop Motion Pro User. " SMP has been invaluable to be able to test ideas with instant feedback and I find myself exploring the editing tools and looping functions more and more whilst I am shooting. " - Glen Hunwick, Glen Art, the studio resposible for the famous Australian Cadbury chocolate advertisements.
