ReviewFix.com sat down to interview Smith Micro Director Evie Carter and Sr. Product Manager Fahim Niaz about their new product “Manga Studio 5.” In addition, Smith Micro Content Artist Tion Alexander gives us a demonstration of the new software.
“Manga Studio 5″ at first looks like a lot to take in, but it’s actually a lot easier than it looks. It is user friendly in that everything is right there and is easy to use. Even those new to the software and non-artists won”t have much much trouble with it after only a few minutes playing around with it. At first glance it looks like it has everything you need to make a manga from various paint sizes, already made panels, easy to do panels and even already installed character models with plenty of features to play with. You can even put them in various poses.
One neat feature The Smith Micro crew showed was Qumarion: a robot that can be used to put your character model into any pose you want. It looks like something Pixar would use in one of their studios. It’s pretty lightweight and moves just like an action figure. It seems to work perfectly and make the exact pose you put it in.
