Hi There

We have temporarily removed the contact form because we're too busy to deal with enquiries.

moviesoup has not been developed since 2013, however, it is still very popular with budding animators and schools. We keep the website open so that people can download the software and generate activation keys.

Sys Admins -- there are no .msi or network installers, silent install switches, or mechanisms to automatically activate the software during installation. Sorry about that.

We simply don't have time at the moment to further develop moviesoup or to provide technical support - which is why we have decided to give it away for free.


moviesoup is an intuitive animation tool designed around the creative flow.

no need to read lenghty manuals just to get things moving: where others juggle with key-frames, motion-paths and transforms, moviesoup animators simply record and edit animation directly on screen.

with moviesoup anyone can animate.

moviesoup was created in a participative design project together with children, teachers and experts in digital creativity. we'd love to learn about your ideas for moviesoup and how we should develop it further - please get in touch here.

moviesoup is made by FluxTime, the creators of the popular FluxTime Studio animation community where children proudly create, share and show their own animation.
