    Good afternoon!
    I started to try MugAnimator 6.5 with the intention of buying the Pro version, but unfortunately I can not get it to work properly!
    Most of the time it does not open!
    After passing the 1st small screen, open the biggest one, but it gets all black and blocks!
    I have already used the various versions, 64 and 32 bits, compatibility modes and nothing!
    What could be blocking the application ?!
    Thanks for the help!

      Hello, Do you use any antivirus or firewall that could see it as potential treat? Please msg me via facebook group and I will do my best to help you.

  9. Olá, tem mug animator para Windows 32bits?

  10. bfarinella


    Tried to email support but email would not go through.

    Wanted to see if there is a way to change the background that is used on a permanent basis, currently I need to change the background each time I go into the application.

    Would also like to see if there is a way to change the image size on the mug, I have 15oz mugs and the image does not go top to bottom of the mug when I print them. I do not want customers stating that I am falsely advertising the mugs to look like that.

    Using Mac OS version.

    Hello Pawel,
    J’ai acheté la version payante du logiciel il y a 10 jours mais je ne sais pas si je dois désinstaller la version gratuite ni où mettre le code d’accès. Pouvez vous m’indiquer la marche à suivre svp ?

          Thank you. What product do you mean?

  35. Dee

    I tried this Mockup animator before. I use a Mac. Sometimes photos would upload and sometimes they wouldn’t. If they aren’t uploading try removing all the spaces file name. Thanks for the mockup generator Paul.

  36. Hi Paul,
    Many thanks for your job, which is highly helpful for a sub mug reseller as I am.
    I’ve downloaded the last version of MugAnimator (4.1), but it doesn’t work on my computer. Unfortunately, I’ve erased the previous version and now, I’m unable to produce any e-sample for my customers 🙁
    I assume it’s because MugAnimator 4.1 is designed for 64bits PC configuration, when mine is on 32bits.
    Could you please help me to recover a version running on 32bits.
    Thanks a lot

    1. Paul

      Hi Sylvian,
      Please email me and I will send you link to previous version.

      1. Hi Paul,
        Thank you for replying about my previous issue, all is all right now.

  37. Alas it still doesn’t work on my Mac 🙁

    1. Paul

      Please try to upload ANY photo from your DOWNLOAD folder. Please note, file name should not contain any spaces. This is know bug and I am working on it to resolve it asap.

  38. brendan

    do you have a program that will assist with printing i.e/ making sure images are printed to the correct sizes for certain mugs. or could you recommend a program

    1. Paul

      I would recommend to use adobe photoshop or adobe elements for that.

    2. What you really need is a page layout program. Depending on your budget and desire to scale the learning curve, I’d recommend:
      Quark Xpress
      If you have a Mac and a small budget, try Pages.

  39. Geoff

    Awseome Job. Works a charm on windows 10 64bit. Thanks for your efforts.

    1. Paul

      thanks! Hope you enjoy using it. Tonight v.4.1 will be out with coaster and larger mugs gifs plus other small bugs fixed!

      1. Sydney Chilambwe

        Hi Paul I didn’t use my software I bought last night the problem is that I downloaded into phone now it is not Working so can I download again so that I can install to my laptop

        1. Paul

          Hi. just used link again. it will work. you can download as many times as you wish.
          all the best!

  40. Michael

    I love this program and use it all the time. Is there anyway to add a feature to select the amount of times to rotate or make it so it will repeat infinity on the gif video?

    1. Paul

      Hi, thank you!
      Giff will loop while spin but it depends of software you using.

  41. Job well done Paul, you are a true legend to me in the sublimation field.
    It works a treat and looks fantastic.
    Only if there were more people like you willing to help others.
    You prove that it’s not always about making money, It’s about sharing your knowledge with others.
    Sharing is caring.
    Keep up the great work it has come a long way since the beta versions

    1. Paul

      Thank you very much! 🙂
      All the best!

  42. Brenda

    thank you for this Paul!! I LOVE all the new mugs and it works quite well!!

  43. Hi Paul, im from Colombia and your app is awsome because I have a custom mugs store and it is difficult to show the customer how his mug will remain, I want to ask, is there an online version to implement it on a website? For example, the client upload their own image and see how it is and order your mug with the image that he climbed?

    this is my web site, still under construction…

    Tnx, blessings

    1. Paul

      Hi Jorge,
      Online version is in the pipeline and it will be available for free to all. I will email all blog subscribers as soon as is online mug animator is live.
      all the best

  44. I am not able to see any images when I use this? I installed the mac version. I click image… choose the image I want on my computer and it shows nothing?

    1. Paul

      do you pick mage from your main drive?

  45. Hi Paul,
    I really appreciate your efforts, and I’m sure I must be doing something wrong… but I can’t seem to get the Mac version to work on my MacBook Pro. I’m running OS10.11.6, have re-downloaded the app several times, tried loading images as jpgs, pngs, and tiffs with no luck. All I get is an animation of a blank mug. What am I missing?

    1. Paul

      can you actually load photo to animator?
      Do you choice photo from your mac drive or other partition or virtual drive? to to load image from your desktop. and let me know if it loads. I know there is a little issue with macs loading images from external drives, dopbox, google drives and other partitions then MacHD.

  46. Paul Demonty

    I resized it on 21×9 cm – 200 dpi and it works again !

  47. paul Demonty

    It is Mac HD

  48. Paul Demonty

    Hi i tried it for a few days and it worked.
    I’m trying again today to put the image on the cup but it doesn’t appear.
    On mac 10.11.6
    JPG and PNG file from 100 ko to 1 MO

    1. Paul

      I moticed in some cases on Mac version, images loaded from other disk them mac hd wont load. Please check if this is the case.

  49. Downloaded Mug Animatior 3.0 for Windows, unpacked, but does not start.
    I see “made with unity” and then the window just turns white and that’s it.
    I use Win7 Professional 64bit

    1. Paul

      Do you run it in Admin mode?




  51. I have downloaded and been using the Mac version and must say I am completely impressed. Very smooth flowing and really adds professionalism to my customers when they see the mock up gif. Thanks again and a great job!

  52. Damien Williams

    Fantastic animator, many thanks for your hard work!!!

  53. Hello, I tried it for Mac OS X 10.10, but the image doesn’t appear in the mug when I select the image…

    1. Paul

      Hi. What image you are trying? Didnyou try other file formats and image sizes?

      1. Yes, I tried JPEG and PNG, 1 MB and 275 KB

    2. rob

      hi when loading img make sure no spaces in name thats how it worked for me

  54. Dee

    Hi Paul,
    Very useful tool. Thanks for making it available. I’m trying to use it for wrap around designs and am having trouble getting it to load certain files. Is there a size limit, preferred dimension or file type restriction?

    1. Paul

      Jog and png will work. As long as files are bot crazy huge they should load fine.

      1. Dee

        Hi Paul,
        It still isn’t working for me. I’ve shrunk the file to 56kb and it still won’t load. I’m using a Mac. Are all the kinks out?

  55. Jenny

    Hi Paul, I have just downloaded and tested the mac version. Great job. Just a couple of questions.
    What are the proportions that are needed for the design to fill the whole mug, it is placing smaller?
    I had 3 designs I wanted to test and for some reason on one out of the three would work?

    1. Paul

      22×9.5cm works best. but also you can adjust size by dragging little arrow in the bottom right corner of the image to fill the space.
      all the best

  56. Claire

    wow this is awesome!! Thanks so much Claire =)

  57. Miguel Galvez

    Wow tried it and it is very awesome, you did a really great job on the app, the only thing i think it could help is adding white magic mug because thats the comon mug they sell… i haven’t seen black magic mugs until now.

    also beer mugs would be awesome clear ans frosted :3

    Sorry if it is to much, but

    1. Paul

      thank you for your feedback. it will go on out “to do”list.

      1. Miguel Galvez

        i noticed… is there a way so that the background comes out transparent? because i wanted to put a custom image but the blank square did not let me…. and it produces around 160 photograms D: to try and remove individually the blank spaces.


  58. simon

          2. Paul
