I totally recommend you buying this. Stop motion studio isn’t one of those apps where people can send you stop motions, it’s where only YOU can make a personal stop motion! You can also make a stop motion then hold on it then there is the option to ‘save video.’ It lets you add it to videos! Also, if you make a 3+ minute long video, it may have an issue where it lags and skips some frames when you watch it, but if this happens, simply just hold on your video and click ‘save video’. It adds it to your videos! (The one that became with your device) once you have done that, simply just watch it from videos, and all frames will be there and all lag will be removed!(the lag is still there when you watch it in stop motion studio.)
If you install this, I recommend you buying the premium add on. It really lets you bring your movies to life! Happy stop-motion-ing! (I don’t think that’s a word lol)

Good app but one thing

At first when I downloaded this app i was exited to do some Lego stop motion. When I first used it, it was great then after 3 days I wanted to get into doing stuff like this. I done a stop motion of a Harry potter and I wanted to do a scene when the owl is flying. I took it and then I saw the “editing” feature. I immediately clicked on it as I wanted to erase my hand (because I wanted to make it fly) and then I went on erase to get rid of my hands. Then it said “pay £4.99 to edit” So then it just looks terrible! I was angry that you can’t even erase anything! At least make the erasing option free and keep everything else at the same price. Yes, your probably wanting money because there are no ads but the reason of this app is TO make a stop motion, not pay lots of money just to get a simple feature that should be free. I would rather have fun on this app then spend money on an erase option. Yes, this app is very good but that one thing is the only reason I’m not giving this app a 5 star. It is a very good app and I have filmed a lot with this app.

Good highly recommend

This is really good for people who want to make stop motions. There are just some minor setbacks though that don’t always matter. There is a loud camera shutting sound and also for when you delete a picture. I have tried to see if I could turn it off but I can’t, if I put disable for camera shutting it still doesn’t stop the noise. And If you take a picture with the camera close to something it can turn pixel-like. Even though if you don’t have the paid version it still works very smoothly and well and if you don’t mind paying for the expansion your experience is vastly improved. I would highly recommend buying it. Thanks for this incredible app!

Just Can you please remove the sound when you take a photo delete a photo it is very annoying and loud.
