Animaatiokone software

Create your own animation using Animaatiokone software

Animaatiokone is a software for creating stop-motion animation. It's easy and intuitive to use and helps you focus on animating. In fact, all you need while working is the three buttons in your remote control unit: capture, delete and preview.

The basic user interface consists of timeline, playback and camera windows. The camera window shows the live view of the camera, possibly onion skinned with timeline data. Onion skinning –feature combines camera picture with up to two other pictures to help create smooth movements. The timeline window shows thumbnails of all the captured frames, providing basic editing capability. The playback window shows the current frame. Quick preview and full screen playback are available at all times.
