Worst stop-motion software out there!

Ultra Kryptonian

I use quite a few stop-motion apps and programs, but this one (and the Mac version), are total garbage! Recently, I upgrade to a 10.5 iPad Pro from an iPad Air and this program refuses to start. Just a blank yellow screen, then it ultimately crashes. When it did work in the past, I found it lacking the features of Stop-Motion Studio, which is a stop-motion app I highly recommend! Oh, and don’t get the Mac version, either. I purchased version 2 of that software, then they killed it when OS X was upgraded. It kept crashing and not recognizing any of the cameras that previously worked. Then, they had the nerve to ask me to upgrade to their latest version! BEWARE!!!

Multiple Crashes


Spent over $30 purchasing Mac and IPad versions after recommendations from design professionals. Was highly disappointed that after hours work the program started crashing on both the iPad and the Mac.

To make it worse, I spent a great deal of time setting up a studio with props, lighting, camera’s and like. Attempted to re download app after app stopped working all together...in the mean time I lost all of the work that I had done. After reopening continued to crash without even getting to home screen.

Very displeased with the product being that I spent so much on it.

I would like to know how to request a refund as nothing came out of the downloads at all and I am going to have to take the products off my computer and iPad all together to avoid it ruining my computer.

Great app, please add markers


Great app, love using it with the remote camera app, it would really be great if after adding audio, you could add markers to the timeline in realtime as the audio plays , I think that would make it even easier to animate to audio. Great job.
