Boinx Software’s stop motion animation tool, iStopMotion, has been updated to version 1.3, adding German localization and a preference setting for turning the video upside down in order to support animation of small objects. Also, the sound that’s played when a frame is captured can now be turned off for time-lapse recordings. Current owners of iStopMotion 1.0 or later can continue to use their keys with version 1.3. For new users the cost is US$39.95; volume licensing for schools and other educational institutions is available.
