Black Friday : iStopMotion Discount
Boinx Software today releases iStopMotion 2.1, an update to its wildly popular stop motion animation and time lapse software. iStopMotion 2.1 features markers–a convenient new way to structure the timeline–and improves compatibility with Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard. It is the first Boinx Software product to provide a full Japanese localization. The update is free and strongly recommended for all iStopMotion 2.x users.
“I continue to be impressed by the astonishing work that our users of all ages all over the world create with iStopMotion. iStopMotion is the tool of choice for stop motion animation (aka Claymation) and time lapse recording at home, at school or in the professional film studio,” says Oliver Breidenbach, CEO of Boinx Software. ”I am happy that finally we are able to provide a Japanese version and I am looking forward to seeing great works come from new users.”
Markers are a convenient way to structure the timeline and to aid the animation work in timing motion or labeling scenes–especially in longer animation projects. A marker is defined by a starting and an ending frame. Each marker has it’s own name, color and description and can be dragged to a different location in the timeline easily.
Japanese Version Availability
With iStopMotion 2.1, language support has been extended to Japanese, complementing the English, German and French localization. Distribution and support in Japan will be provided by act2, Tokyo.
Users in all languages can now work with long filenames including non-latin characters on Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard (and higher).
iStopMotion 2.1 requires a PowerPC or Intel Mac with Mac OS X 10.4 “Tiger” (or newer) and a compatible capture source such as a FireWire DV Cam, IIDC Firewire camera, Firewire Webcams (like a built-in iSight), a supported USB cam, a capture card such as Blackmagic Intensity or a supported digital still camera.
