HUE Animation Studio

HUE Animation Studio contains everything that a budding animator needs to create stop motion animation videos. For use at home or for school projects, this is a creative and educational pastime that can be enjoyed by the whole family.

This perfect gift for kids encourages creativity and imagination. Whether you are making a LEGO® brick film; animating your own characters with claymation or capturing a flower as it blooms using time-lapse photography, you can bring anything to life in minutes with the easy-to-use software.

The kit includes:

  • The HUE HD camera, a flexible plug and play USB camera with built-in microphone. HUE’s innovative design is perfect for animation.
  • The fully-featured HUE Animation software designed for children by teachers. A single license is included but multiple licenses and site licenses for schools can also be purchased separately.
  • The HUE Book of Animation has step-by-step instructions for creating 20 hilarious stop motion videos and ideas for even more. The videos, sound effects and backdrops are also included on the CD that comes with the kit.


“I have used HUE Animation software and cameras with my class of students who have autism and severe learning difficulties. They were able to create their own short movies with minimal support – the activity also encouraged them to work cooperatively, something that they can find very challenging. They were all very pleased with the results which we put onto our MLE to share with families.”

Sally Paveley, The Bridge School

Working with HUE Animation studio has been shown to be very helpful to some children in the autistic spectrum. Please see this article which was published in Autism Eye magazine.
