StopMotion

About

Simple but working Sketch helping to generate stopmotion films by capturing images from an usb-webcam. I quickly wrote it for a StopMotion-Workshop for kids because there weren't many free/working/easy2use Applications around. There's a lot to improve, but it's working.

The program captures jpeg-images and saves them under /%ProgramDir%/data/images/%timestamp%/. Use the MovieMaker (Processing>Tools>MovieMaker) to generate a QuickTime-Movie file out of it.

Runs on: Win/Mac/Linux.
Written in: Processing.

Featuring

Not Featuring

  • Movie Export (instead: use the MovieMaker-Tool provided by Processing or a Video-Editor)
  • Anything exceeding the absolute minimum.

Keyboard Controls

esc = quit
LEFT = switch to next camera source (version: StopMotion_v_2017-07-08.pde)
