Free stop motion animation software for windows,free apps to edit videos on mac,players auction - Test Out

06.09.2014
Having mentioned the Stop Motion Pro software in my previous post about plasticine animation I decided to test drive the free version that  is available as a download from the Stop Motion Pro website.
There are various ways of feeding it with stills; a web cam, a digital still camera, a video camera or even a scanner. You click on “Import” on the file menu and browse to the folder where you stored your pictures and select them. The basic version also enables you to paint on the frames so that you can create special effects such as explosions. When your movie is ready you can export it to a AVI, WMV or MOV file and share it with your friends. The best feature of this program is the ability to preview your plasticine animation as you go along. All in all this is a great piece of software and it is well worth downloading the free trial version from the Stop Motion Pro website. Great software analysis – thorough and clear and very useful for animators (both beginners and professionals).
We have been following your posts regularly and always enjoy the ‘Animations of the day’ (it is quite inspiring to watch something original, gets the creative juices flowing)!

I then moved a couple of objects and took another picture, and so on until I had a sequence of 30 frames.
A feature that caught my eye on the “Getting started” tutorial on the Stop Motion Pro web site was the ability to make a reverse copy of your action.
To enable this you do need to have your webcam or digital camera set up to capture live frames on your computer. We are an environmental film production company and recently completed a project for a client who wanted a stop motion animation. You would expect software of this calibre to be very expensive, but luckily for us home animators it comes in a range of prices to suit most pockets. Some still cameras allow you to connect them to a computer, view a live image on the screen and record the still frame to the computer.
When the pictures are loaded the first frame is displayed on the screen ready for you to run the movie.
You use a tool that copies the frames you select and pastes them after your first set in reverse order.


Stop Motion Pro adds you frame captures to your movie as you go along and you can play the animation created so far, at any point.
It was great fun to shoot and after completing the post production, we were so inspired that we decided to draft up a short tutorial outlining the ten main steps involved in the process. The basic version is called “Stop Motion Pro Action!” and this does enough to satisfy the needs of a novice animator. Unfortunately my camera is not one of those so I had to settle for taking a series of pictures and then transferring them to the computer with the cables provided by the camera manufacturer. This means that you can check on the speed and smoothness of your animation and adapt it if necessary.
When the program is loaded it pops up a box asking what you want to call your move and the name of the first scene. No matter how long you have been doing animation it is always a thrill to see your work come to life on the screen.
