Boinx Software announced on Friday an update to
iStopMotion, its tool for recording stop motion and time lapse videos. Version 1.5 adds support for high-resolution video, a plug-in that enables the use of digital still cameras, an option for reducing video noise, support for multiple image sources, the ability to create a lower quality preview movie for checking your work in progress and more, including many bug fixes.
Support for high-resolution video and the still camera plug-in are extra features that don’t come with the free upgrade to iStopMotion 1.5 DV for current owners of version 1.x. The upgrade to iStopMotion 1.5 HR, which includes both of those features, is US$299, with the full version available for $349 until Oct. 30, after which date it will be $399. The still camera plug-in is $20 by itself, and the full version of iStopMotion 1.5 DV is $39.95. Seven-day demos of iStopMotion 1.5 DV, iStopMotion 1.5 HR and the still camera plug-in are available upon request.
