Sorry, I have no idea.

Drawing a lot of unique smear frames takes you back down to the speed of traditional animation, so it's generally something people try to avoid on rigged productions. That said, you can construct smears from vectors or use a combination of re-used smear bits and deformation. It can all be built into the character model to make it easy to access. We also have a LiveFrames feature that links with Flash and TVPaint if you absolutely must hand-draw them.

CelAction and Moho are different beasts. I don't see the point of comparing them on a MOHO forum. :?

Andy, I'll buy you a pint in Annecy this year. See you in June!

And who says Moho hasn't been used on Peppa Pig? Emily Elephant's trunk was pre-animated in Moho before being loaded in CelAction 2D.

Dang, did I just trigger Andy's Google alarm? Ah well, might as well then...

(Also the above squid creature was animated in... TVPaint!)

But I love MOHO for my vector work above all. I'd probably like Celaction, but I've never been able to secure a demo from Andy...

Come to think of it, where have all the webinars gone? Silence there too.
