    Having been a member of Long Winter Studios for a while I was excited by their new membership system and being able to have access to all of their excellent characters and for only $10 a month, it was a must for me.

    When I first accessed the characters through Maya I did experience some issues. Andrew was extremely helpful when I contacted him and took time out of his busy day to work with me to fix the issues, He was extremely determined to sort out the problem and get me started, which was some of the best customer service I have had anywhere.

    I would highly recommend this Membership to any animator out there as you will have access to some of the best character rigs available. All the characters I have used to date are extremely user friendly and you can get some great looking poses and overall brilliant animations with them.

    In my opinion an amazing product and a must have for any animator.

    Great job Long Winter Studios I’m looking forward to seeing what becomes available in the future.

    Definitely worth it. The new Rigging system is very good. For the amount of content offered in a world where good rigs are somewhat hard to come across (unless in a school) this is a fantastic deal.

    This is a great deal. Access to all these appealing characters (with solid rigging) for such a low price? I’m sold. I haven’t needed any customer service yet, but I hear they have been very helpful.

    Definitely worth $10/mo. All the rigs I’ve used so far have been really solid. On top of that the customer service has been fantastic. There were a couple small things I couldn’t figure out with the Tom rig and customer service got back to me with a solutions incredibly fast. The only thing that I wish they had was a manual for their rigs, but they’re so fast to answer any questions I have it hasn’t actually been an issue.

    Fantastic rigs, for sure worth $10/month. I had some problems finding out how to use certain parts of the rigs but the awesome customer service got back to me right away and helped me out. Loving this subscription! So many characters!
