Posted: Jan 18, 2012 NFB OFFERS APP FOR CREATING STOP-MOTION FILMS
This article was written by Carolyne Weldon and originally published on the NFB website on January 11.
There’s just no stopping the NFB’s web developers. Hot on the heels of the NFB Films iPhone, iPad, Android and PlayBook mobile apps, our devoted developers has come up with PixStop, a fresh new app that enables you to make stop-motion films on your iPad 2. Designed to capture as many as 10,000 images, Pixstop allows you to create mini masterpieces up to 13 minutes long. Excitement!
Pixstop was originally designed for our education clientèle (NFB/education). What this means is that the app is user-friendly enough to be used in classrooms, by school-aged children.
This is no limitation on the app’s potential, however, as the attached clip amply demonstrate. The clip was made by NFB Hothouse alummus/full-fledged animator Sylvie Trouvé (director of the well-loved Orange).
Pixstop is available on iTunes. The app is free in Canada; $2,99 elsewhere.
