"We are proud to have such a large user base already before we release Boinx iStopMotion 1.0", says Oliver Breidenbach, Head of Boinx Software, a division of GeBE Computer & Peripherie GmbH. "We are overwhelmed by the positive feedback we got from the user base so far." Over 6500 people have downloaded and registered any of the prerelease versions published since the "Last Minute Christmas Preview".
Uses in Education
Boinx iStopMotion is especially appealing to educators world wide. Stop Motion animation is a very creative art form which makes it an ideal part of the Fine Arts curriculum. The Time Lapse capturing has many uses as part of science experiments. Boinx Software realises the special needs of schools and higher education with special volume pricing and soon to be released bundle offers.
Of course, Stop Motion animation is an art form with a strong history and many uses in the 2D and 3D animation space. Professional users appreciate the high quality that iStopMotion produces by using uncompressed images and the many cool high end features like editing of frames in an external image editor like Adobe Photoshop. Boinx Software has announced an iStopMotion Pro version to be available later this year to support higher resolution and more professional level features.
Uses at Home
Stop Motion animation also is a fun pastime for home users of the digital hub. A free Lite license is available if you want to have fun with the kids but do not plan to produce a high resolution movie. For more advanced users, iStopMotion integrates seamlessly with iMovie and iDVD for inexpensive production of professional movies on DVD.
