Best StopMo Software

Postby vixen-1 » Thu Apr 10, 2008 5:02 am

Hi Guys,

I was thinking of buying Aniimatiokone ...anyone use it ? Or should I just go for one of the freeware programs like MonkeyJam.

I don't really know any stop motion software, but i use Ulead Video Studio 9
HOW I DO STOPMOTION IN ULEAD:
1. Make a new project
2. Put all you frames onto timeline
3. Press crtl+a
4. then use CLIP>Change image color duration!
Also thanks for JamMonkey, i will try this one

I use a lot of free software. In fact, even many of the best brickfilmers out there use free animation software. Better software won't make your animation better.

The thing is however with MonkeyJam or other free software is that you end up using at least one other application to finish your movie. This makes it complicated for beginners to use ..as they need to know about codecs...after effects apps..etc..

But you are right ..the most expensive program will not make you a better animator..but sometimes buying a half decent stop motion program can save you time especially if you are new to StopMo.

I use about 20 pieces of software in each of my films, but for a beginner (or if you're just making a quick film) being able to do it all in one package can be nice. :)

I use the new software called ikitMovie.

Its sound fx are cool. Its easy to use and I don't have to use loads of other programs to make a movie.

Must we use our camera connected on our computer for MonkeyJam? Or can we import pictures on our Cellphones/hand phone to MonkeyJam? I did the second option. But when I posted to youtube, it says on the video: The video you have requested is not available.
