NFB releases PixStop: free stop-motion app

Friday, November 25th, 2011 | Posted by Jim Thacker

The National Film Board of Canada has released PixStop, a free stop-motion app for iPad.

It’s aimed at “ages 10 and up”, so don’t expect the feature set of, say, iStopMotion. But as something to keep the kids amused, and introduce them to the basics, it’s worth a look.

And who knows: perhaps one of today’s PixStop users could be tomorrow’s NFB animation legends.

Download PixStop from the App Store

    Is there something like that (basic and free) for PC as well?

    Looks like it’s $2.99 in the “US App Store”. *sadface.

    You could try Helium Frog or Anasazi, although I couldn’t tell you how well either of them work. If you Google ‘stop motion software’, you’ll find a few more in the $20-50 range.

    @Ryan: That’s odd. I’m in the UK, so I can’t download it at all from my local iTunes store, but I can still get it from iTunes Canada.
