Stop-Motion Studio

Ever wanted to make "claymation" or "stop-motion" movies? Stop-Motion Studio gives you the ability to use your FireWire or USB video camera, connected to your Macintosh, to create stop-frame films easily and quickly! Stop-frame movies are shot frame-by-frame, where each image is a little different from the previous one, creating the illusion of animation. Most cartoons are done frame-by-frame, and all claymation movies are too. Stop Motion Studio works by previewing what your camera sees, and when a frame is ready, you simply "capture" and move to the next. When you are done, Stop Motion Studio can play back your movies and save them for later.Download a demo version now to give it a try, which can be purchased whenever you want from inside the software. Capture frames from your digital camera and sequence them into an animation Make claymation or stop-action movies Onion-skinning (ghosting) lets you preview the current shot transparently on top of your last frame to make smoother animation Time-lapse photography option to capture pictures over a period of time Add audio tracks and sound effects Exportable to QuickTime movies or individual frames for use in other applications Easy enough for a ten-year-old to use but powerful enough for adults who do professional or amateur animation
