Ratings and Reviews
Great app, but I am unable to find a solution.
I want to start off by saying that this app is amazing and I use it as an alternative to many of the other stop motion editing softwares as it is much easier. I have used this app for about 8 months and have spent countless hours animating. I have bought all of the add ons to get the full experience and make my stop motions as best as I can. That said recently I have encountered a problem that is not only irritating but unnecessarily difficult. Recently the merge option has been greyed out, although his might not seem like such a big problem it is really irritating. I am currently working on an ant man and the wasp LEGO trailer stop motion, and a character known as the ghost has powers that require a merge of different slides, the shrinking and growing effects also require the same method but I can’t for the life of me figure out how to fix this. I have attempted to contact the developers through the website, but I got an error display and couldn’t move further. If this is only a simple bug that can be fixed or a patch that has been ridiculously over complicated than I need to know. I have spent about an hour researching if others have encountered the same problem or are having trouble but I can’t find anything, if anyone has any solutions or the developers themselves see this then please help. This is something that I know has worked in the past so there is no reason it shouldn’t now.
I absolutely love this app but it has a few problems
Ok so I have finally found an app that lets me create animations without too much trouble. It’s very intuitive and has many great features. But as every other app it has it’s problems. One of the ones I’ve had the most issues with is that when I have it set to manual it will still auto correct brightness whenever I put my hand in front of the camera, not sure if it’s my phone’s fault or the app’s but it is a problem because it creates a lot of light flicker. Another is that whenever I have it zoomed in and I go to look at the pictures I have already taken it resets the zoom. This makes it very difficult to animate dialogue.
I have a few more nitpickey complaints. Mostly just that I can’t set the ISO to anything below 100 (I know that expensive cameras don’t go below it either.) I often find that my sets are way to bright. And one final complaint, there isn’t a slider for white balance. I just feel restricted because it has a set of presets. I also have a suggestion: a feather option for erasing/painting would be awesome. It would create smoother transitions from the previous frame to the next. And also if there is a way please allow us to change the aperture as well.
Overall this is by far my favorite stop motion app and I only want to see it improve. Hope you found this useful.
It’s Great-Just What I Needed
I have been yelling for ages that my little Phonics program needed to be made into moving cartoons; my son told me about this Application, he told me his children are having s great time making Stop Motion movies. So I made little characters from my Phonics stories and using Stop Motion created my own Cartoons, as it were. So far I have had great feedback from those who have seen my Phonics “stories” come to life. Thank you very much. If my Phonics Cartoons Help any little ones to read, I will have the creator of this Application to thank.
I have only one “complaint “. The program, has at times, died on me; that is goes totally black-no picture, nothing-when I try to send a Stop Motion Movie. So far I wait, for several hours and it comes back. This last time it seems lost for good. I don’t want to lose the Stop Motion Mini Movies I have recorded. I’m flummoxed.
PS: If you want to see your handiwork applied go to “ I Can Do Phonics” on Facebook. Click On videos. (I am trying to put the Cartoons on UTube as well).
