The HUE HD Pro can be used for homeschooling, online tutoring or video calls with family and friends. Simply connect the camera to a USB port and use it straight away with your preferred video conferencing app.

You can set the digital timer for automated image capture or use the motion capture feature to watch for movement. This turns the HUE HD Pro into a remote monitoring or security camera.

Le HUE Animation Studio n’est pas seulement un outil crĂ©atif, c’est aussi un moyen de crĂ©er des souvenirs.

Depuis mon enfance, j’ai Ă©tĂ© captivĂ© par l’art de l’animation. L’idĂ©e de donner vie Ă  des objets inanimĂ©s Ă  travers des images en mouvement m’a toujours fascinĂ©. C’est pourquoi, lorsque j’ai dĂ©couvert le kit HUE Animation Studio, j’ai sautĂ© sur l’occasion de crĂ©er mes propres films animĂ©s.

Lorsque j’ai ouvert la boĂźte, j’ai Ă©tĂ© agrĂ©ablement surpris par la qualitĂ© du matĂ©riel. La camĂ©ra USB HUE HD est compacte, lĂ©gĂšre et facile Ă  manipuler. Elle s’est connectĂ©e sans problĂšme Ă  mon ordinateur, et j’ai Ă©tĂ© impressionnĂ© par la nettetĂ© des images qu’elle capturait. Le logiciel HUE Animation Ă©tait simple Ă  installer, et j’ai rapidement commencĂ© Ă  explorer ses fonctionnalitĂ©s.

Mon premier projet a Ă©tĂ© modeste : j’ai animĂ© un petit personnage en pĂąte Ă  modeler. J’ai positionnĂ© la camĂ©ra, pris une sĂ©rie de photos, puis les ai assemblĂ©es dans le logiciel. Voir mon personnage prendre vie Ă  l’Ă©cran a Ă©tĂ© une expĂ©rience magique. J’ai continuĂ© Ă  expĂ©rimenter avec des LEGO, des figurines et mĂȘme des dessins. Chaque mouvement, chaque image, Ă©tait une Ă©tape vers la crĂ©ation de mon propre univers animĂ©.

Le livre inclus dans le kit a Ă©tĂ© mon guide. J’y ai trouvĂ© des conseils pratiques, des astuces pour amĂ©liorer mes animations, et des idĂ©es pour de nouveaux projets.

Le HUE Animation Studio n’est pas seulement un outil crĂ©atif, c’est aussi un moyen de crĂ©er des souvenirs. J’ai rĂ©alisĂ© des films pour des anniversaires, des fĂȘtes de famille et mĂȘme des projets scolaires. Chaque animation est devenue un souvenir d’un moment prĂ©cieux. Je me souviens des rires partagĂ©s avec mes amis, des heures passĂ©es Ă  ajuster chaque image, et de la fiertĂ© d’avoir crĂ©Ă© quelque chose de spĂ©cial.

This is the coolest little toy/education item for a child

My daughter loved how easy it was to take the photos and how even easier it was (click of a button) to see the stop motion put together with all our images.

Having the computer program installed was a breeze and once the program was up and running, it was so easy to put together our first creation.

We were SO EXCITED to get this package in our hands! We have been dying to try stop motion photography and the second we saw the package
 we were excited!

This is the coolest little toy/education item for a child. It challenges them to create cool scenes for the stop motion and really allows them to be creative and imaginative! Much needed these days!

A great way of distracting kids from sedentary screen time!

 There was much poring over this extremely cool-looking camera, which allows kids to create amazing stop-motion movies, setting them on the path to becoming little Greta Gerwigs and Steven Spielbergs! The JDA panel liked the fun and approachable look of this gadget and thought it was well-supported by the HUE book of Animation, allowing children from seven years up to get hands-on with film. The judges agreed that this would make a great gift combining tech with imagination and skills such as set-building, script writing and more.

“Ironically, this gadget is a great way of distracting kids from sedentary screen time by getting them to create their own highly creative content! A fab gift idea for any kids who want an easy way to get to grips with making their own films.” Bonita Turner, Editor of Junior.

“Hours of fun to be had with this fab piece of tech that gives kids a real understanding of stop-motion film while looking super cool on any desk. I like the way the camera itself looks as though it might come alive at any moment!” Eleonore Crompton, Deputy Editor, Junior

Visually interesting shots and moves

The reason I went for the HUE HD cam is that it has a gooseneck and a focus ring, and it’s small. Perfect for working with time constraints while making visually interesting shots and moves.

  • It doesn’t take a lot of expensive hardware, like computer operated dollies and cranes.
  • It can get you up real close in strange positions while still being able to focus.
  • You can even do cranes with some effort.
  • You want your focus to be lockable when you’re doing a stop motion.
  • Plus you can actually shift focus during a shot.

That said, just remember the most important part in any film: story.

Perfect for playing games with friends or for talking to grandchildren online

During Lockdown we have really missed our grandchildren and sharing stories. The HUE camera has been absolutely perfect. We can turn the camera to talk to our grandchildren and then focus it on the books we are reading. They absolutely love it and can clearly see the words and the pictures.

It has also been great for playing games with friends. We have set it up to focus on the Trivial pursuits board and been able to play with friends. Everyone has seen the board clearly. I have also used it to send documents that normally I would have shared face to face.

As a former headteacher of an Infant and Nursery school, I wish I had had this to use in school. I can think of 101 uses that I could have made of this while teaching from putting the words to hymns on screen, to demonstrating to classes and many more. So versatile, easy to use and so light and easy to transport.

I have used the camera for my son’s online classes

I have used the camera for my son’s online classes it has really helped us in the session. The tutor recommended it to us and it has really made the sessions better to manage. I can switch anytime in between so that the tutor can see my son or the work he is producing. The quality is really good and very easy to operate. Overall, I’m very satisfied with it. 🙂

Follow Your Dreams

Fantastic animation kit! I use these for group animation workshops for disabled children and young people and they are so simple to use, the children really engage with them. We have made some really impressive work with these and the accompanying hints and tips book is great for learning techniques. The flip-down set included on the box is really useful too! Very highly recommended for group activities or for a gift.

The educational impact is tremendous as children’s creativity is unleashed and they develop additional skills in communication and teamwork that will be of benefit to them throughout their lives.

My grandson was at a loss for words when he started on the program. He can be quite a talker, but he seemed stuck on one word: cool… cool… COOOOL.

HUE Animation is really fun and simple to use, with a cool camera, producing sharp images; great for all ages and abilities. We loved using this to create stop motion animations, as well as some nice drawn ones.

The most fabulous part is that even though they are only little kids, they are able to use the software all on their own.

It’s amazing how easy it is to use and inherently teach at the same time.

It is refreshing as a parent to see an app that is not a game or simply a way to drill kids on subject matter.

It makes them feel really big to be able to think about a story and then create and film it is so much better than spending their time playing computer games!!!
