iStopMotion 3 is MacLife Rated and Approved

by Megan -

MacLife's J.R. Bookwalter recently checked out iStopMotion 3 - here's a taste of the review:

"Few things in life are as magical as watching inanimate objects come to life--something about it brings out the kid in everyone. iStopMotion 3 for Mac is likely to rekindle that interest in a big way, particularly for those old enough to remember classics like the original King Kong in constant rotation on TV.

We've previously reviewed the cheaper iPad app ($9.99), which has the same basic feature set. But on the Mac side, the all-new version 3 offers some compelling advantages, not the least of which is the ability to export finished animations to iMovie or Final Cut Pro X, where you can begin assembling individual shots immediately.

The bottom line. While iStopMotion for iPad is plenty for novice users to start out with, the Mac version is a must-have for artists with greater ambitions. The extensive tools coupled with a larger, more comfortable workspace can make short work of even the largest animated or time-lapse projects.

Their final rating: 4 out of 5 - Great! Read MacLife's full review here.
