- Loved in Education
Stop Motion Animation and iStopMotion appeal to educators worldwide as a tool for challenging
the creational talents of students of all ages. Time Lapse Recording helps to make slow
processes more visible to the students. Stop Motion Animation lets still objects become alive,
fuelled by the phantasies of the young artists.
- Used by the professionals
Based on Apple´s QuickTime Technology, iStopMotion can also be used in professional environments.
The captured frames are stored uncompressed so that the raw material has the highest possible resolution.
Professional tools such as Adobe Photoshop and Final Cut can be used for further editing.
- Great at home
As part of your Digital Hub, iStopMotion is also fun for daddy (or mommy) and the kids.
Get a Lego set or your favorite action figure, hook up your digital camera to your Mac,
get iStopMotion and start doing your own fun stop motion animation or time lapse movies.
- Cool Animation Tools
The way iStopMotion helps animators is nothing short of revolutionary.
The level of control you get from seeing the previously taken frame and the current
live feed from the camera is outstanding. Animate quickly and precisely.
- Transparent preview gives animators precise control
- Onion Skinning makes movement more visible
- Frames based user interface for easy editing
- Title/Action Safe Area overlay
- High Image Quality
Very important for professionals, iStopMotion preserves as much image quality as possible
by storing the individual frames uncompressed. The noise reduction feature increases image
quality for video/web cameras whose CCD chips are often optimised for speed while risking
noise in the single frame.

lapse recordings both with video sources and Still Image cameras. Aside from the
emotional values of these recordings, time lapse also has many benefits in education.
