Ratings and Reviews
I animate for a living but rarely get a chance to do stop-motion. As the set up time and camera/computer is cumbersome. But now I have this ultra portable unit to take with me whereever I go and can now animate on the fly. I can go to the beach, to someones dirty basement, or animate while bored on the loo.
Anything is as possible, as far as the limitations of your portable device goes. What's also wonderful is the fact that you can also edit your short film right away with the swipe of your hand. you can easily click on a frame, delete it, or click on it and see the onion skin of that framw to fill in more inbetween frames. You can reorder the frames, add sequences and move them around in the short film later. it's super easy to use and for the really low cost of the program, I am really happy with it.
The only thing that I'm sure about is how to add sound to it... something to investigate I'spose.
Let's step it boys !!
Crashing right out the gate on reordering frames ...why no remote capture ? Every time you touch the iPad you run the risk of shaking the camera ? (I.e. iPhone tap to expose frames , or headphone volume button to trigger capture ?... ) how about a real way to adjust timing and exposer of each frame .a real X-sheet? .
Ask your animators if they would use this app for even messing around ?? Sure you might be going for a first time user , but there are already apps that have that market.. Imotion pro ,istopmotion . Stopmotion recorder.. All these apps have the same features ?? Who asked for yet one more app that does the same exact thing ?? If your going to rely on the Aardman name , SET YOURSELF and your company APART!! DO SOMETHING GROUNDBREAKING!!
Yes this might be someone's first exposer to animation so lets give them some real tools .... Ask your animators if they would like to use this even for just fooling around?? The answer would be a big fat no!
Good but needs improvement
Very easy to use and lots of fun, however, moving a frame almost always causes it to crash, which is a crippling interruption. In addition, there's no function to return to the top, or skip, so you have to scroll through hundreds of frames to find a particular spot or the beginning. The save function should also be a choice, which it is not (your film saves when you close, but not any other time). The frame dup is unreliable and often randomly inserts. Looking forward to updates to solve these problems, but don't hold your breath.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
