AnimaShooter Junior 3.2.0.0

A software utility that enables you to create stop motion animations using your webcam, as well as save the completed projects to your computer
The stop motion animation technique requires multiple shots to be captured at various time intervals, which are then stitched together in order to create a continuous movie. Thus, the scene needs to be manually adjusted between each shot and every object moved around, so that the illusion of motion is created.

Use your webcam for stop motion animations

AnimaShooter Junior is a software utility designed to lend you a helping hand with stop motion animations, by allowing you to capture images with your webcam and take snapshots of the desired scenes. In addition, every frame is saved separately and arranged accordingly, in order to make you work easier.

To begin creating your movie, you first need to create a project, which holds all of the captured images and can be used to bring modifications to the overall animation. You also have to connect the desired webcam device to the computer and allow the application access to its feed. After everything is set up, frames can be captured with a simple click of a button and they are all added to the same timeline.

Move and duplicate the captured shots

The timeline is basically a gallery that contains all of the captured images, which can be easily viewed and modified by selecting them from the list. Additionally, you can move them around and change their order, in case you decide to switch scenes. Items can also be duplicated or deleted entirely, depending on your preferences and whether they are required in the animation or not.

As far as the camera settings are concerned, you are not offered a very wide range of settings. You can, however, change the resolution and rescale the image to certain proportions, as well as rotate the picture 180 degrees. Fortunately, the available resolutions allow you to capture images in full-HD quality.

Create your own stop motion movies

Thanks to the very intuitive interface and straightforward controls, AnimaShooter Junior is a handy software solution for those of you who are interested in creating your own stop motion animations. In addition, the captured shots can be easily arranged and edited according to your preferences, without too much movie editing experience required.
