Loud by Design has released Stop-Motion-Studio 1.0 (US$39.95), a new application that allows you to use a digital camcorder to easily create stop-frame films. “Stop-frame movies are shot frame-by-frame, where each image is a little different from the previous one, creating the illusion of animation. Most cartoons are done frame-by-frame, and all claymation movies are too. Stop-Motion-Studio works by previewing what your camera sees, and when a frame is ready, you simply capture and move to the next. When you are done, Stop-Motion-Studio can play back your movies and save them for later.”
