stopit stop motion software StopIt is a free Windows application for stitching photos together into a movie file, ideal for stop motion animation and time-lapse movies. It's a fairly basic and simple application to use, so it's ideal for people who are new to stop motion animation. The application also gives you some control over the position of each individual frame enabling you to smooth out movies when there has been an accidental slight movement with the camera. You can also create stop motion animations using your web cam directly in StopIt. StopIt is not intended to be used to create the finished movie - once you have turned your photos into movies, you'll then need some editing software to add transitions and soundtrack etc. I initially wrote the application because I wanted to play with stop motion, but didn't want to pay for software only to use it once. If you've created any cool stop motion/timelapse movies with StopIt, drop me a link and maybe I'll add it to the 'Made with StopIt' page. Testimonials
