I really like a lot of the features of this app, well-executed and the ghost image on screen really helps to line up your shots. On the downside, I find the editing interface to be somewhat clunky. Copying and pasting frames in desired spots is far more tedious than it needs to be. Improvements in that regard would make this app just about perfect.
Excellent stop motion app. I tried others but most of them lacked comparable functionality. I love that Mr Lightbox keeps updating the app and that he is actively supporting his user base. The only thing I'm not that keen on is the somewhat antiquated look of the menu system (the buttons look a little Windows 98-esq) - but that's really of no significance, the app still rocks!! The alpha brush tool is so cool too! BUY THIS APP (especially if you have kids who have lego!!).
What? Really. ..i can only take live photos to be used in the stop motion? Even the most horrible stop motion aps have an import pic button so i can import pics from my phones gallery. ..not good . And i paid money for this. It appears to do nothing at all who would take the time to live action motion stuff? Much easier to get good pics then later when you are ready to animate import the pics....jeez whatever...REFUND!
UPDATE: Regarding my comments below about inconsistent auto exposure and white balance: This is moot of you use the sensor or a remote trigger. The problem I encountered seemed to be the result of tapping the screen to trigger photos, which had the effect of refocusing and setting a new exposure based on where you touch the screen. I'll chalk it up to a rookie mistake. And regarding my comments below about not being able to rearrange frames: You can. It is just awkwardly achieved via the Copy feature. For these reasons I have upgraded my rating from 3 stars to 4. ORIGINAL REVIEW: I liked a lot of the functionality but it lacks some important features: 1) No Undo?! If you accidentally delete a frame, it's gone. 2) No zoom?! 3) Inconsistent auto exposure and white balance when using flash, creates bad flickering on playback. I like the ability to change frame rates and delete or duplicate frames (but would be nice to be able to also rearrange frames). The overlay is useful and adjustable.
You have to touch the phone to adjust focus. I used a Bluetooth game stick for the shutter. Pretty good stop-animation results. But, the frame moved slightly (several pixels) whenever I touched the display on the tripod.
This app is very simple to use and hasn't given me any real problems whatsoever. I love making paper animations with this app and the exporting and editing features are well done and effective.
