Boinx Launches iStopMotion 3

New Mac version allows users to create stunning HD stop-motion and time-lapse videos using the iPhone as a camera.

Puchheim, Germany –

The brand-new iStopMotion 3 is coming to a Mac near you, with the added ability to create beautiful HD movies using an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch as a camera via the free iStopMotion Remote Camera app. Its new look is fully optimized for the MacBook Pro’s riveting new Retina display. iStopMotion 3 also has enhanced app security by being sandboxed and signed with DeveloperID. It is localized in English, German, French, Japanese and Russian. All this plus every feature from the previous iStopMotion 2 Pro (formerly priced at 499.99 USD), iStopMotion 3 is available for just 49.99 USD, with a limited-time-only introductory price of 29.99 USD.

“When we were kids, we made stop motion movies in the backyard with my father’s Super-8 camera. We waited anxiously for weeks for the film to come back from processing, till we could see the results. Today, we want to build the best stop motion animation app out there to make it as easy as possible for stop motion enthusiasts like ourselves to create films they love,” comments Oliver Breidenbach, CEO, Boinx Software. “That’s why we decided to consolidate previous versions of iStopMotion - which cost up to 500 USD - into one powerful package and offer the full-featured product at a rock bottom price. It’s important to us that all stop motion filmmakers, young and old, have access to the best tools for creation out there.”

Support for the iStopMotion Remote Camera Taking a cue from its sister app, iStopMotion for iPad, the newest version of iStopMotion for the Mac adds support for using an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch as a versatile HD camera for creating stop motion and time lapse videos. Available free of charge from the App Store, iStopMotion Remote Camera transmits a live video feed and supports 1080p remote capture with the iPhone 4S and the iPad (3rd gen), and 720p with iPhone 4, iPod touch (4th gen) and iPad 2.
