iMotion is an iPhone app the uses the iPhone camera to capture up to 500 pictures and turn those into stopmotion. The app requires you to have the latest 3.1 software and preferably the iPhone 3GS for optimal performance. You can use it to either capture photos manually, or automatically using time-lapse to create your very own animations.
Tap new to get started, and choose manual or time-lapse. Also you can edit the number of seconds between each photo is taken. The app takes a photo every 3 seconds until you press the stop button. After you are done, you will see your animation and you can adjust the speed using a simple slider. From there you can save the animation to your iPhone, email it (sent as an animated gif file), or export it to your photo library. If you don’t like the automatic format, you can choose manual and tap to take a picture each time. The iMotion app also has a helpful feature called “Onion Skin” where you can see a transparent view of the previous photos to help you when positioning the subject in the next frame.
This is a terrific app for anyone wanting to create something cool on their iPhone. It can be used to make any type of animation, such as a sunset, sunrise, waves at the beach, driving down the street or just used a fun photography app. If you are feeling super creative, you can even make your very own movies with inanimate objects, as done in famous movies such as the Nightmare Before Christmas and Chicken Run.
Note: This app is free until October 10th, so grab your copy now.
