"Films are 50 percent visual and 50 percent sound. Sometimes sound even overplays the visual." - David Lynch

Import or record audio. Easily animate to a prerecorded sound track like the pros or dub your movie after shooting. A waveform view helps you recognize significant events in the sound track making it easy to match sound with the animation.


Camera Overlay – Overlay the current live camera image with the previous one and see the changes unfold before your eyes. Animate more quickly and with a higher degree of accuracy.

Instant Playback – Being able to play back your work at any time without a long wait leads to instant gratification.

Beautiful Timeline and new Navigator – Never get lost and quickly navigate through your movie, even if there are hundreds of frames.

Share to Camera Roll, YouTube, Dropbox and now WebDAV – Move the world, one frame at a time. Edit your masterpiece in iMovie or publish it directly to YouTube or upload to Dropbox. Teachers can now easily collect their students' work to a WebDAV server provided by their school.

iCloud Integration – Upload your movie to iCloud and email your friends a link to view it instead of attaching a huge file to your email.

Remote Camera – Position your camera more conveniently and use the better optics of the iPhone with iStopMotion Remote Camera (download separately from the app store; supports iPhone 4 or newer, iPod touch 4th gen. or newer, iPad 2 or newer, iPad mini) - a free complementary app to iStopMotion for iPad!

Theater – Be inspired by what other people create with iStopMotion or share your own masterpiece with the world.
