Stopmotion and Timelapse Movies with your iPad

Best iPad Animation Apps for iPad and iPad MiniI can't believe I can make such cool StopMotion and Timelapse movies.  

Finally, an easy way to give your inner-animator an outlet! With this amazing stop motion app you can capture animations and even time lapse movies with ease.  If you've got an iPhone you can even use it as a remote camera from your iPad, allowing you to direct the action from your iPad while recording it via your iPhone!

Back in the 70's I tried to make a stop motion movie with my StarWars figures.  

I'd set up the room with boxes and pillows, covered it all in a white sheet, and set up an epic battle...  Across the snow they would race... converging in one penultimate event...!!!  

But after an hour the guys had moved only a few feet... the 'battle' had yet to engage... and the battery of the (seriously massive) video camera needed to be recharged...  essentially the epic battle ended up being a 'StarWars figure play afternoon while the mini video power-station charged up!  

And that was my career as a stop motion movie maker.  

But now, there is an app for that!  

iStopmotion makes stop motion movie making REALLY easy.  Within a few minutes of downloading the app we were making our first stop motion movie...


The Rainbow Crocodile returns from a long day...
he settles down to enjoy the sunset...
when spies a diamond outside his lair... 
taking the initiative, he takes it for his own... 

iStopMotion also does time lapse!

Winter clouds over the south west cost of Western Australia

This is almost half an hour of the southern 'breeze' of Western Australia... in six seconds.  Sure, it's not that long, but it's COOL.  I'm wanting to do one of mowing the lawn sometime... that will be fun.  But for now... the clouds of a winter in Western Australia...

Thinking of it... do it... one of iPadDad's favourite apps.
