    Unity review by Murillo P.
    "Create the best experiences with little effort : Unity's framework is a very straight forward tool to create games and experiences in general. What I enjoy the most is the community around it, you can find anything on the web unity related. Also, the multi-platform is a huge feature of Unity. The ability to make one game and export to multiples platforms is extremely useful. Unity is being updated almost every 3 months and this is also a positive point, they take in considerations bugs found and new features to the versions, which only makes me like more the tool. The old pricing was something that most independent developers couldn't afford, but nowaday you can pay very little by month."

    KeyShot review by Erdem B.
    "Simple Yet Highly Capable for a Rendering Software: - I can easily drag & drop files to import to the scene, without having to open a dialog box. - It supports a wide range of diferent filetypes for importing. - Intuitive and simple ways to assigning, replicating and linking materials. - Materials are classified into different types with different controls. It is very easy to grasp how they work and when to use what. - Setting up a scene is very quick and easy. You just need an HDRI, a background image and of course your subject. - You can just render an image right away with standard settings and it will look wonderful. - You can tinker with a few parameters and get a very quick render or very detailed highly photo-realistic images. - It gets shorter to get renders compared to earlier versions. I have been using the same PC for a long time but my render times got somehow shorter. - You can choose how many CPU cores to use. Very useful when you have to run multiple programs simultaneously. - You can easily prepare simple animations. - Material and rendering quality is great. I had several coworkers and clients mistaking render images for photos. - You can have a variety of channels for post-production. I save a lot of times on my stills using extra channels."

Besides the physics tools, the spline tools are by far my favorite. Also, the sculpting layout is perfect for building characters/scenes."

    "A web design work space I'm comfortable using: Adobe Animate has many of the same user-friendly features and interface elements that it has had prior to being compatible with HTML5. I can work with the familiar ActionScript coding language I'm used to and be able to convert my files to JavaScript and HTML5 in a matter of minutes. I enjoy using the Adobe Animate work space, which I feel is more intuitive and visual than typical programming work spaces."

    Vyond review by Adrian S.
    "Easy to use: this is one of the easiest ways to create videos to promote your business without any prior knowledge in video editing or animations. the tool is web-based so you can access it from anywhere around the globe from any device irrespective of the operating system which is pretty cool. the templates are really great, there are a lot of premade templates available which we can edit by changing colours and transitions or even change the camera zoom for our convenience. the greatest thing is that we can add our own image to make it unique and appealing. there are also a great collection of characters from which you can choose to make the animations. the character animations are also premade and animations can be added with just a click of the button. the character can also made talk with lipsync which is another cool thing about animate. when it comes to the audio part there are several ways to add audio to the video such as by recording through a microphone or text to speech which supports multiple languages. for background sound there is a collection of music availble which you can add to the video easily."

    "10 years usr: Very flexible and easy to use. I would recommend Lightwave 3D as an entry level 3d modeling software to everyone who wants to learn 3D modeling. Another very good feature LW has is the separate platform for rendering and animation. Instead of running the entire scene in one window you can work on a different program (LW Modeler) and then dropping the model into the rendering and animation editor (LW Layout), that makes the whole scene editing process more clean and easy to work."

    "Very Easy to Use: The Ease of use, the adobe Character animate CC is effortless to use, especially when compared to the other leading software build for animation by Adobe, the Adobe Animate CC which can get complicated when coming to big projects. There are many builds in rigs for you to work with and in case you need more, there are tools to design characters, the rigging options are outstanding, easy create puppet pins and animate them. The facial animations are easy here with the software where you can define your mouth, eyes and all with rigging and then use the webcam to capture facial animation and then apply them to the character; it's a time saver cause that animation can take hours of work if you're doing with puppet pins."

    Harmony review by Un-attributed
    "Essential tool for character animators.: Unlike After Effects and Flash, Harmony was designed not just with character animators in mind, but specifically character animators working on serial projects, who will need to reuse assets over and over again. It's the ultimate vector animation software package (though, yes, the newest versions do include raster brushes). The color process is infinitely better than Flash and Photoshop. You can create palettes for scenes and the color filled areas are linked to those palettes. Update the palette, and every instance of that color is also updated. This saves a massive amount of time (vs. animating in Photoshop using AnimDessin and AnimCouleur extensions). Harmony is also accessible to learn in a self-guided context -- the training material on the Toon Boom website is deep, and well written. If you're new to Harmony, you can learn the basics in about a month of working through the material."

    "AVTpro's Motionbuilder Review: MotionBuilder is one of my favorite apps. Affectionately known as "Mobu" (Moo-boo) was created by an Oscar award winning team back in 2003. It's very mature, and stable app that falls in the Autodesk suite of tools as a real-time Motion Capture. It was used AVATAR . There really isn't anything better on the market for fast, ease of use, humanoid "Motion Capture/ MoCap". I also love it for keyframing but with the amount of free MoCap" available that use .FBX animation file transfer standard, I often only have to tweak the mocap with a few keyframes. MotionBuilder FBX allows MoCap data from most if not all animation apps. Mobu uses something called HumanIK or HIK for short. HIK allows instant rigging of most bipedal character with an very intuitive yet powerful rig. So your character model can be rigged and animated in less than an hour with an Auto-Rigger like Mixamo, or Maya Quick Rig and motion can be drag/dropped and you have a performance for games or films.

Used in conjunction with SVG libraries such as Raphael and Snapz, you will find yourself using GSAP instead of the built in animation tools. As well with angular, GSAP works nicely with angular's ngAnimate to do sophisticated timeline work that is difficult to accomplish with CSS."
