iStopMotion 2 exports files that are drag-and-drop compatible with iMovie, so you can add titles, transitions, music and sound. You can even use GarageBand to produce your own animated music video!

iStopMotion is used worldwide by educators from all disciplines as a tool to help develop creativity in students of all ages. It can be used to hone problem-solving and communication skills, so fundamental to all areas of study. The time-lapse feature is ideal for science class. Speed up slow processes like a blooming flower or melting ice.

What's new in iStopMotion 2?
iStopMotion 2 contains many new and exciting tools to help you express your creativity, yet it remains very easy to use. Take for example the chroma keying: Essential for the professional animator yet also fun for the kids who can now put their action figures on the moon.

– Finally There
Over two years of development, we have tried to make iStopMotion more powerful for the professional users yet retain the ease of use that enables even young kids to have fun using the product at school. Not an easy task as we had to look at the needs of the various users and get them all covered.

– New Workflow
The number one problem with iStopMotion 1 was that if it quit unexpectedly, all the work was lost. As it was capturing frames, those were written to an invisible, temporary file from where they could be recovered and from where they had to be copied to the final destination when you saved your work. This took a lot of time and caused a lot of anxiety at the end of your work.

In iStopMotion 2, the workflow is turned around. First, you need to give your file a name and a location, so that iStopMotion can save the images directly to that file. That way, there is no waiting at the end of the work when you save your movie and if iStopMotion should crash, the file is in most cases recoverable.

If you are a professional you will save time by saving your standard project settings as a custom preset. For teachers, projects with students become easier because the student can only choose from presets defined by the teacher.

– Virtual Stage
iStopMotion 2 lets you animate items into an existing background movie or make a background to an existing foreground movie. For example, you might have an underwater movie of a coral reef. Animating swimming fish in front of it is easy. All you need is a backdrop of uniform color as a background for the fish models. Then you use the chroma keying feature to replace the uniform background color with the background movie.

If you have a movie of a person in front of a green screen (with the alpha channel already processed) you can also do the reverse: create an animated background for the person to walk in.

The Home edition includes a number of stock movies and images that you can use as background or foreground for example an image frame or a stage curtain. In the Express and Pro editions, you can use your own images or movies.

– Taking a Cue
Getting the movement of people or objects right is difficult in animation. So a popular technique is to load in a reference movie, for example with a real actor, and use it as cue for your animation.

– Realtime Recording
Every animator knows that there are instances where you wish you could just quickly record something in real time, be it an item falling over, a particular camera movement or zoom. With iStopMotion 2, you can capture video in realtime, specifying either the number of frames or the period in seconds.

– HD
If you want to record HD, there now is a solution. While HDV over FireWire still cannot be supported, you can use a Sony HD camera with HDMI output, an Blackmagic Intensity card and a MacPro to build a solution that can capture 1080p stop motion movies or time lapse recordings. Support for non-square pixels is important if you want to record DV in 16:9.

Loved by Educators
iStopMotion is used by educators worldwide as a tool to help develop the creativity of students of all ages. Stop-motion animation lets objects become alive, fuelled by the imagination of young artists. Time-lapse recording helps make slow processes more visible to students — great for science class!

Hours of Fun at Home
iStopMotion is fun for the whole family. Build a movie set from building blocks, and actors from clay. Connect your camera, and create a stop-motion animation! Use time-lapse recording to watch a sunset happen in seconds, or watch a flower bloom right before your eyes.

Used by Professionals
iStopMotion can also be used in commercial environments. Captured frames can be stored uncompressed, giving the highest resolution available from your camera. Professional tools such as Adobe Photoshop and Final Cut can be used for further editing.
