Munich, Germany-based GeBE Computer & Peripherie GmbH has announced the availability of iStopMotion version 0.6. Just in time for the Easter holiday, release offers improved speed, a completely new timeline, voice control and other new features including an “Easter egg.”
The new version makes use of Quartz Extreme and OpenGL for improved speed, while improved timeline control makes every captured frame immediately accessible for direct manipulation. Moreover, the voice control feature saves the animator from moving back and forth from the set to the computer. Users can now shout a command to a computer across the room to capture a frame.
iStopMotion Version 0.6 can be downloaded at http://www.istopmotion.com/download. The version is still considered “prerelease” and may contain bugs or be missing features. This latest prerelease now requires a free license key which can be obtained from http://www.istopmotion.com/license.
