Customer Reviews

Good app, but there's problems.

I had this app a while ago and deleted it, not having anything to film. I recently downloaded it again because I got some figures I can move for stop motion. I tried exporting it to my camera roll and it says it works, but it never actually appears in my camera roll. I've tried exporting it as a GIF file, but it is just exported as a picture of the first frame. I also cannot watch my video unless it is in edit mode, which doesn't show all the frames and makes it slow and choppy. Every time I try to watch it, it says there's an error about rendering the movie. I'm very upset because I've spent weeks making this movie and I can't even watch it. I'll update to five stars if this is all fixed. P.S.: I have an iPad Air two, so it's not my device that's the problem.
-EDIT- I figured out the problem with not being able to watch it, and I was so relieved. I still cannot export my animation though. I'm going to try to make some more space and try then, but overall it's a pretty good app. I do recommend it, and I would say it's the best stop motion app on the store. I just wish I could export it.

Not worth Pro

I didn't see anyone concerned by this so I shall bring it up. This app was great for me. The only other app that I had tried was the one by Lego, but I wanted more FPS, as it could only go to 10, so I got this one, and I can tell you, I have made so many fun stop motion videos with this. The problems, however, started popping up when I wanted to do more. I wanted to make things fly, but I couldn't erase without the full version, so I spent the money for it. The first few weeks of this were great! I was testing all of the features, but then they updated it, and now whenever I want to use erase or draw, the picture flips upside down. And they haven't fixed in, even though this bug has occurred for me for the past 5 updates, with 3 or 4 of them being bug fix updates. It makes me very frustrated. I'm started to doubt using this app as my main app, and switching to some software for Mac, as those also might have better quality to them.

All in all, if you aren't actually going to use this as a moderate/expert, go for it. However, if you actually want to make serious things with it, it's almost impossible.

Great app, but can you answer me this

This is an excellent stop motion app, but can you explain to me why suddenly all of my videos are so pixelated that a circle isn't even a perfect shape? And when I looked at one I saved to camera roll a long time ago before this problem came up, it is fine and about 720p quality. I hope that this is some kind of bug and not you trying to get me to buy HD because I'm not falling for that one. I can easily go and buy any other studio without this problem. Also, now all of a sudden it tells me that I can't use back camera for this app, so it's useless. It offers for me to go to settings and I do. I look at this app's settings and it never even mentions anything about cameras.
And I also have one of the latest models of an IPad mini so it's not my device that's the problem. This app would easily be 5 stars if it wasn't for these issues.
