iStopMotion 1.5b7 available

iStopMotion 1.5b7 is now available. To participate in the beta test program, download the software and get a beta license key. (All current beta license keys are about to expire.) Most important new feature is the still camera assistant that determines which features can be used with your digital still camera. A number of bug fixes make this beta the best yet. Thanks to everyone who reported issues!

Customer Samples: Gonk!

John Mollison's son Wily directed and created a short film called "The guy who fell over and gonked his head" at the age of five. Funny movie even if the name is almost longer than the movie. John writes: "Your software was to credit in keeping him interested and involved. He's now 7 and shows great interest in stop-action films."

The iStopMotion Montage Project

Ben Gadberry of Stoney Brook Films is pulling together an interesting project: The iStopMotion Montage Project is a sort of demo roll with projects done in iStopMotion. Ben asks everybody to contribute their works for his cause: We need all the video clips we can get. If you want to be a part of this, and not only show your support for iStopMotion, but bring notice to your animations, or time-lapse videos, contact Ben.

Customer Samples: quakefilms

<quakefilms> is Dave Wardell: I found iStopmotion, a Stop Motion Animation and Time Lapse program that would work on my iBook. I did a couple of test films and fell in love. Since this change from program to program was so big, I changed the name of my film "company" to quakefilms. Check out the brickfilms on quakefilms' page.

Oakhill Primary wins Becta Award

The kids from Oakhill Primary School, UK (aged 6) won the Becta DV Award 2004 with their Clay Animation Speccy4eyes. They used iStopMotion for the animation and finished it off in iMovie. The kids did everything including the capturing and editing and they are only six years old. Thanks to Jenny Hulme for the link.
