Review: iStopMotion for Mac lets you tell a story using stop motion animation

Create stunning stop motion and time-lapse videos with this powerful yet easy-to-use video creation and editing app.

With its advanced features and clean interface, iStopMotion for Mac enables you to create stop motion and time-lapse animations with ease. This premium app is fast, accessible, and delivers a good user experience, making it appealing for casual users. Having been built specifically for Mac OS X, the app has deep integration with other OS X features and applications.

At the end of the straightforward installation process, iStopMotion for Mac plays a short video that highlights the majority of the features it offers. Due to the nature of video editing, the app may refuse to run on old systems -- specifically on those that lack a modern graphics card. The UI is relatively clean and does not overwhelm you, even if you haven't used video creation tools before. In terms of performance, the program feels speedy even when you're working with 1080p videos. You'll be impressed with the iMovie and Final Cut Pro integration, as well as with the companion app available for iPhone, which lets you use the phone's camera directly with iStopMotion in real time.

If you want to create stop motion and time-lapse animations and want an accessible UI, you should try iStopMotion for Mac. While other apps like iMovie and Final Cut Pro offer more features, this app's clean interface minimizes the learning curve, making it a more convenient solution for non-experts.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of iStopMotion for Mac 3.2.2.
