User Reviews for Stop Motion Studio Pro

Stop Motion Studio Pro Realistic Rating

Stop motion studio pro is a decent app, but there are noticable problems: 1 is that the pighting setting when animating will auto adjust itself even when you have the lighting locked, and I sincerly hope they will fix this that way one can animate with the auto adjusting, if they fixed this problem alone, I would have give it 4 stars easily, but since it doesn’t and lighting is anpretty major part if animation I gave it 2 stars. Problem 2 is that it will not play from the end of the animation if it has over 300~500 frames of animation, and I hope that the developers at stop motion studio fix this problem so animators aren’t have to rewind there animations every time they want to show there animation. Problem 3 is that it can only go up to 30 FPS ( frames per second) when a lot of animators want to animate at 60, and 120 and higher frames rates. Along with those comments, there are some pluses, the previous frame view ability is good, and alows the animtor to see the previous frames and the current one. Also another plus is that the play back quality and export quality is very good, so you can show-off your animation at its peak!

Very useful!

I have used this for everything that I have ever animated. This app is worth the five dollars, so make sure you check into it if you’re an animator, or into filming stuff. This app is just perfect for anyone who wants to create something, because it is easy to use, and doesn’t have many bugs. Few things bother me with this app, but there still are some problems. Maybe I will be recording a voiceover, but if I am in the “Preparing to record countdown”, and you press done while it is happening, the audio will glitch a little. The only thing I really need on this game though, is for it to have better processing in general. It may skip just about every other frame if your stop motion is too long, and it is hard to watch your project. It also takes too long to show somebody else your project, and gives me nostalgic flashbacks to 90’s internet. Even though it’s not the best, I really couldn’t live without this app. 5 stars anyway!

Awesome Stop Motion App! 👍

Hey, this is definitely the best stop motion app ever! 😁 But I think it would be even more awesome 😎 if you could make trailers in this app like in iMovie, and if you could watch other people’s videos that they made. Also, if you wanted to make a stop motion video with legos, it would be cool 😎 to be able to put a LEGO logo in your title for your animation. I think 🤔 this app needs lots of improvements. I wish there were LEGO logos to put on your titles, like the regular one (the one that is red, black, white, and yellow that you see on all LEGO sets), and ones like Ninjago or Friends or City. Also, I think there should be a search bar when looking for the music and sound effects in this app, and there could be all the songs in the world 🌎🎶, so you just need to search, and then your song pops up. Anyway, I think this app is great, and I hope that you’ll improve this app like I want.

Incredible Value and Features

I purchased this app about 5 years ago, and I rarely spend money on apps. Then, it worked well enough, and I never really expected much more. In the years since, Stopmotion Studio has been updated faithfully, fixing bugs, streamlining the animation process, and adding new features, all of which are available in the basic paid version, which just makes it a joy to use. For lego stop motion especially, this app outdoes a lot of the significantly more expensive desktop editing software and has features like face animations of a quality I’ve never seen anywhere else. Though I run into a few glitches now and then, they are very rarely anything major or unfixable, and this app has been completely worth every cent and more. Development works regularly to fix concerns of users, and I would be doing it an injustice were I to not leave a review of strongest praise.

It’s great for beginners, but not for anyone else.

This app is great if you are a beginning animator. However, although it claims to make it simple and easy to animate, its only problems are with its own self-made limitations. I have been animating using Stop-Motion Studio for over a year and I have encountered a large number of issues. It has difficulty displaying videos at only 12 frames/second. The “erase” feature doesn’t work very well at all. The camera is inconsistent from frame to frame, making it very difficult to make a decent-looking film. My worst issue with it is with the “4K” feature on the app. It has built-in “draw” and “erase” features, and occasionally while drawing or erasing a 4K photo, it will warp the frame and make it impossible to work with. It is also completely impossible to retrieve the frames once they are warped. The onion skinning doesn’t work very well either, as it displays a blurry and very bright or very dark version of the frame before and makes it very difficult to find exactly what you’re changing. There is also barely any competition for this app on the App Store. No other software I’ve tried does what I need it to. I have been forced to settle for “OK,” and that is not okay.

Makes the Cutest Animations! 🤩

I paid for this app and it is totally worth it! You can use anything to make an Animation, legos, dolls, stuffed animals, you name it! The videos are super helpful, without them I would be making pretty boring films. 😂 I have gotten other apps and none can match up. Now, I do need to tell you you’ll need lots of light for a good end result, but that isn’t a con. 🔆 It is a great way to make toys move ALL BY THEMSELVES! It is super adorable. I have realized I do rush too much and you’ll see tons of skipping, so you’ll need lot’s of patience! The pro’s outweigh the pro’s of other apps, and this is the very best app to make cute movies with any objects you wish! 🧸 I am never turning back to those old, confusing, hard-to-use apps, I’m hooked! And I’m sure if any of you out there get it, you WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!

Just 1 (other) small change.

I’ve been using this app for years now, especially its “draw” features and I can’t lie, I’m a bit disappointed on one specific change. Whenever I copy a drawing and want to paste it, I must always “add drawing” and then paste it from that layer. That might sounds SUPER unimportant, but it gets quite tedious after doing it so many times. Before this newest update, whenever I copied a drawing, I could simply paste it then and there from the + button. But now, that option is simply not there anymore! Can y’all please fix it, cause it will surely make things better! I mean, I know y’all actually do pay attention to these reviews considering you guys added the option to rotate drawings, which was something I asked for a long time ago! Thanks for reading!

No problems whatsoever

This app works really well with any kind of material you want to use in your Stop Motion for example I use Lego Play-Doh and action figures they’ll work there’s not much downside to it well. This app has some difficult settings but that’s OK cause there’s tutorials on how to do things just one downside You need perfect lighting for this to not have shadows but all you have to do is probably get about three desk lamps to make it work the best. In conclusion that’s why this is a very very good StopMotion app I have tried many more but almost none of them work they all have downsides to him this one’s probably the only one that has not too big of a deal with the downside. I looked somebody else reviewThey said the erasing doesn’t work very well. All you have to do is have good lighting and no shadows and it should work a lot better

This is a great and reliable app for stop motion

Ive used stop motion studio pro for many years now and it has many useful features for making stop motion. That being said, it has a few small issues I’d like to point out. First of all, when My animation reaches a high number of frames, the playback plays back the animation at a lower frame rate (although when I save it, it plays at its normal frame rate). Second: when I use the eraser tool, the frames I use it on become lower resolution for some reason. Third: sometimes when I leave the camera screen for a sec to edit a part of the animation or something and then come back to the camera, the lighting looks slightly different (keep in mind, i have it set to fully manual) and this can sometimes mess up continuity and the quality of the erasing tool. But that last one might just be a problem with the iPhone’s camera resetting or something and not the app

This app is very helpful and has so many great features that can be essential when making a stop motion film. It works great most of the time and I really enjoy using it. BUT, there are still some issues that I have run into when using this app. First off, when the video gets to about 800 frames the app starts to slow down. I’m not sure if it’s just with my device or if it’s actually the app though. Second issue is when I try to play my video the play button just turns blue and I have to wait like 30-45 seconds for it to actually play. Third issue is that when the video actually plays it just randomly cuts off part of the voiceover which can be frustrating. Overall I do recommend this app if those things don’t bother you or if the app works fine on your device. Thanks! :)
