Boinx Software rolls out iStopMotion 2.8, the latest upgrade to its popular stop motion animation software. Headlining the list of new features and improvements is iStopMotioiStopMotion,n’s new ability to apply filters to imported images. Boinx engineers also went under-the-hood in version 2.8 to restore Canon DSLR camera functionality that was lost with the Mac OS X 10.6.5 system update, as well as make major improvements to color management. Rounding out the updates in version 2.8 is the software’s localization of the Russian language.

“Sometimes, a customer reports what seems to be a minor bug and it looks like a totally trivial thing. Then we dive in and discover a much better way to do things, which leads to dramatic improvements,” comments Oliver Breidenbach, CEO of Boinx Software. “With iStopMotion 2.8, this happened when a small color matching problem was reported. Now, the color is handled much better throughout all areas of the program, leading to better animation results.”

Have existing time-lapse sequences you’d like to work with in iStopMotion? In version 2.8, all filters, such as the popular Tilt Shift effect, can now be applied to previously-recorded time-lapse footage shot with stand-alone DSLR cameras directly upon import. Just drag and drop the images from your camera onto an iStopMotion document and the Tilt Shift effect will be applied to all images, while a time-lapse movie is created at the same time.
