iPad Screenshots


Stop Motion, Pioneer for iPad is a powerful, fully fledged Stop Motion app used to capture, edit and publish stop-motion movies. One highlight is the timeline editor:

Timelines offer a partial overview of a small range of discretely different frames. As you scroll this insight is easy to lose. SM was designed with a solid-state timeline that cycles fixed-position thumbnails as you browse. The buckle has 4 scan speeds, including your project's FPS setting and is used to intuitively navigate, select and edit your timeline.

Since there are no velocity based scroll inputs; as you slide the buckle towards the screen edges, the solid-state timeline cycles in each project’s specific FPS settings. This includes precise playback intervals, even in projects containing any mixture of ones, twos and holds and also enables sound effects and background audio to be played in perfect sync as you prototype with the timeline. Audio files are played when the scan speed matches your project's FPS setting.

Free, simple, underrated

I never write reviews but I saw that this app has quite a bit of 1 stars. This is by far my favorite free stop motion app. Now the UI is a lil funky but easy to get used to. You can change FPS and wut not and export — basically everything u want in a stop motion app, and no in app purchases or ads just 10/10 lol
