Make stop motion animations in minutes on your Mac.
Smoovie’s elegant interface displays your scenes and filmstrip together for easy and powerful editing.
Instant playback - just for fun!
Making a stop motion animation should be fun. You move your objects little by little, capturing each frame and, with growing anticipation, you press 'play' to see everything magically come to life. Smoovie for Mac instantly plays back what you've captured - without rendering. Rendering interrupts your creativity and wastes your time. We think you deserve better and we believe Smoovie is the fastest (and most fun) app for creating stop motion animations!
Choose your camera
Use your Mac’s built-in camera to capture images live into Smoovie, or simply connect any OS X compatible webcam for more flexibility.
Onion Skinning is possibly the most important feature of a stop motion animation app, because it helps the animator to perfect the tiny adjustments required between frames that create the illusion of smooth motion in the ﬁnished movie.
It works by making the live video from the camera semi-transparent and superimposing it onto the previous frame, so it's easy to see how far objects need to be moved for the next shot.
Shoot the action away from your Mac with your digital camera, then import from iPhoto, Aperture or simply drag and drop straight into your smoovie!
Scenes - tell a better story
Smoovie’s unique editor lets you arrange your content in scenes. Each scene has an independently adjustable playback speed (from 1 to 30 frames per second) allowing you to vary the pace and mood of your animation.
Mix it up! You can add new scenes, cut unwanted scenes, capture new action into existing scenes and drag scenes around to change the running order - all with full undo support so you're safe to experiment!
Filmstrip - precision editing
Smoovie’s virtual filmstrip shows the frames in each scene. The filmstrip gives a surprising amount of editing power, yet this simple concept enables children to easily grasp the basics of making movies.
You can cut, copy and paste individual frames - with full undo support of course. You can drag frames from one scene to another and even copy frames from other smoovies.
Add a little music
The right piece of music can really help enhance the mood of your animation. Smoovie lets you browse the iTunes library on your Mac so you can choose the perfect track for your masterpiece.
Keep your eye on the action rather than the computer by using your Apple remote when capturing images.
Even more editing power
Smoovie makes it easy to export your animations to be used as content for other apps. Why not write your own soundtrack in GarageBand or add some opening effects in iMovie or Final Cut Pro?
Share the magic
Once you've made a smoovie, you'll probably want to show it off for everyone to see. Smoovie lets you publish directly to YouTube and Vimeo so you can share your creations with the world.
You can also export your animations to your iTunes library and take them with you on your iPhone or iPad. And if you've got Apple TV, you can delight your friends and family by showing them your masterpieces on television with AirPlay Mirroring.
