Macworld: Create stop-motion animation

by Frank -

Christopher Breen from Macworld gives an overview of the possibilities to make your own animation movie, mentioning iStopMotion: "Unlike in the golden claymation days of Gumby and Pokey, creating stop-motion videos is well within the grasp and budget of the typical Mac user. With little more than a digital camera or camcorder, software, and a fair measure of patience and planning, you can create a compelling animated feature."

"Boinx Software makes three flavors of its capable stop-motion animation application, iStopMotion 2 (…) All versions include onion skinning, allow you to use both camcorders and supported still cameras, and include a compositing feature for adding background images and foreground frames."
