Puchheim, Germany – Still looking for the perfect gift for the animator in your life? Why not double up on gifts and get them iStopMotion for Mac plus a Canon DSLR? With Boinx’s latest update to iStopMotion officially available, the two make the perfect pair this holiday season. iStopMotion 3.5 now offers support for live view with Canon DSLR cameras, including the Canon EOS 5D Mark II, 5D Mark III, 40D, 60D, 60Da, Rebel XSi (aka the 450D in Europe / Kiss X2 in Japan), Rebel T2i (aka 550D / Kiss X4), and Rebel T5i (aka 700D / Kiss X7i).
“In the past, when you wanted to use iStopMotion with a Canon DSLR camera, you had to do without the greatest feature of iStopMotion – the live preview with the semi-transparent onion skinning effect that allows you to see your next shot and make adjustments before capturing the frame,” says Oliver Breidenbach, CEO, Boinx Software. “Finally we are able to provide this feature to customers using Canon DSLRs, and we are hard at work to offer support for Nikon DSLRs in a future release.”
Key Features in iStopMotion 3.5
* New – Support for animated GIF export: save any sequence of up to 200 frames as an animated GIF right to the hard drive
* New – Screen capture: Capture anything on your screen and turn it into an animation or time lapse movie
