FAQs: Stop Motion Studio

HUE Animation Studio now comes with Stop Motion Studio for Windows/macOS, which requires a HUE camera. Please ensure that you have given the software permission to connect to cameras in your computer’s Privacy/Security settings.

The following information only applies to the older ‘HUE Animation’ software.

HUE Animation only works with cameras without flash memory, so it’s not compatible with digital SLR (DSLR) cameras, camcorders which store videos internally, or flip cameras.

HUE Animation is designed to work with webcams and some document cameras with a USB connection. These cameras are capable of real time video streaming.  If you are testing a camera on your computer, make sure that your computer has the correct driver software to run the camera.

We recommend using ‘plug and play’ webcams as these will not require any additional driver installation.


Registering your HUE Animation Studio activation code online will instantly add a Stop Motion Studio license key to your account at no extra charge! If you can't see the code on your account, please complete this form to request your upgrade.

  • Please be careful to enter a valid email address, as we won't be able to respond if it's incorrect.
  • Please include your original order number so that we can validate your eligibility for this offer.
