This product while well developed missed the boat on consumer usage, it would have been far more valuable as an animation tool for say a product such as Crazy Talk, in fact I expect that it might be possible to adapt that same focus on frames, but over all the pricing and the market, not really the best.

Sorry, but this software is not what they show on the can, the features are confusing to use, after spending an hour trying to get it to do more than just a very simple up and down motion (anyone remember Webtricity) I just had to give up then I let my wife play with it and she is really good at using just about any software and she was pulling out her hair after three hours, there must be hidden features where you have to figure out where they are but so far I cant get it to work beyond just a very frustrating simpleton type demo

I purchased the last bundle mostly for this tool, but the controls are not intuitive, (not that I can see) I find most control surfaces to be easy to understand this one feels like someone spilled coke all over it, I am not very happy about spending money for what appears to be cotton candy with sand in it.

I would be interested to know if private proxy services are available, or packages of proxy IPs, I have tried several proxy services in the past and if your not careful you can end up being associated with traffic that is also using the same IP, so if your working with analyzing, say a certain traffic pattern, and the IP gets black listed, you end up with a big problem.

So, I learned the hard way that you need a private proxy network if your doing sensitive, work, which requires white or grey hat skills.

I believe the issue is in its mathematical precision as compared to other similar products on the market, Mathematical modeling is something that cannot be faked, and that is what they did, they used a smoothing algorithm when a different model was required, not impressed with this product, caused a thread crash state and the product as I stated above is not really ready.

I have tried the full version and I am impressed, it is a nice little application and has some serious promise for the future, I would love to see a more open environment like you see with the RW model, I believe you would see some serious growth.

Nice App, if you are on the fence about getting the bundle there are two apps in the bundle that are worth much more than the small amount they are charging.

RW and Pulp Motion, definitely a keeper.

I tried the Demo, and was confused with regard to much of the way the program works, not sure if this is all related to the black background and trial clip that loads over everything so you cant really see what it is you are getting.

I am on the fence with this one, I was really interested in the application, and I wish I could see what I would have once unlocked, it looks interesting but seems to stop somewhat short of the impression received when viewing the sample video and then attempting to use the demo.

Perhaps I missed something or maybe it is just the trial that blocks out everything so you can see nothing, that makes me wonder about what is not seen in the demo.

I think I will have to wait and see if there are further reviews to see if this will be something I would want.

Thank you for responding, I have purchased the full version and can say that it does perform nicely.

It is definitely worth while, is it perfect no what software is perfect, but it is impressive, my earlier comments were because I could not properly evaluate the application because of the overly aggressive nag screen, good to hear that has been fixed.

Looking forward to working with this software in the future, if your sitting on the fence wondering if the application is worth it, it definitely is a great tool to work with, and will only get better with age.
