Can I download the animations?
No, we only offer them on DVD-R disks. Our animations are uncompressed to give you
the highest quality. This results is very large file sizes. Each volume of animations is anywhere from 4 to 16 gigabytes,
requiring 1 to 4 DVDs. Downloading this amount of data would not only take several hours (depending upon your internet
connection), but would require a huge bandwidth allocation. We offer over 3000 animations and we would need several terabytes of online
hard disk storage to make them available as a download.
Can I buy just 1 or 2 animations or do I have to purchase the whole package? Animations are ONLY sold as a complete package. We have them priced low enough to make the affordable to everyone. In addition, we just don't have the time or man power to burn a custom disk for someone with just 1 or 2 animations. We hope you understand.

Don't all animations come pre-rendered? Animations from Studio 1 Productions are pre-rendered. Not all companies provide them this way. With some companies once you get the animation you need to put it on your time line and render it to the format you are using. This can be very time consuming, that is why we provide them pre-rendered in AVI and QuickTime format. So all you have to do is import them into your editing software and drop them on the time line and you are done.
How do I use the animations in my editing software? Do to the large number of programs on the market for editing, we recommend you contact the tech support people for the software you are using. Generally, if you look in the manual for the software or a book on how to use the software, you will find information on importing or opening the animation file with your software.
