If you’ve been wanting to try out the great stop motion animation creator app iStop Motion, then today is your day. As a part of an “App of the Day HD” promotion, the popular stop motion software from Boinx is free, today only. (January 16, 2014.)
From the iStopMotion App Store page:
You can be a master filmmaker, directing your own blockbuster animation movie. It’s fun and easy for everybody from kids to grandparents to tell your story frame by frame, featuring your favorite toys. Turn the time spent with your children into a great creative experience and wow friends and family at your opening night.
If you’re not familiar with stop motion animation, it’s the process used to create such television shows as “Gumby,” “Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer,” and many others.
iStopMotion allows you to setup scenes, and record them frame-by-frame. You can use clay figures, action figures, LEGOs, other models, or even common household objects as your subjects.
The app can also be used to do time lapse videos of such subjects as a sunrise, or the opening of a bud on a flower.
iStopMotion for the iPad is available FREE, January 16, 2014 only, in the App Store. [DIRECT LINK]
