Boinx iStopMotion 1.2 brings a new level of performance to the popular Stop Motion animation and Time Lapse capturing tool for Mac OS X and makes it more fun to use.

Tune into the Web site to see how Santa got captured with iStopMotion while acquiring a new ride.

New Features in 1.2:

  • Really huge speed improvements when capturing images. Weire talking about factor 3-6 here. Even on moderately equipped machines (iMac G3) you should now be able to capture Time Lapse with intervals of one second
  • New Divided capture click sound into two parts for better feedback. Now you can hear when capturing starts and when it is finished
  • New Different and shorter capture sound for Time Lapse. Again different sound that alerts you when a Time Lapse shot fails (e.g. when camera goes into sleep)
  • New Switching between multiple input devices is supported. You can use iStopMotion with, e.g., a DV camera and an iSight without problems
  • New Export Settings will be remembered in the preferences file
  • Fix New Progress Bar for better feedback during long operations like Save and Export
  • Fix When buying licenses for iRecordNow and iStopMotion at the same time, the Kagi email can be pasted in and the application will recognise the proper license key
  • Fix iStopMotion no longer locks up if either your Mac or your DV camera goes to sleep while running
  • Fix This time really sorted out all Panther and QuickTime 6.4 related problems. Hopefully
  • Fix Time Lapse counter now correctly counts down to 00:00:00
  • Fix Tons of other bug fixes
