This is the webpage for the qStopMotion program. qStopMotion is a free application for creating stop-motion animation movies. The users will be able to create stop-motions from pictures imported from a camera or from the harddrive and export the animation to different video formats such as mpeg or avi.

What is qStopMotion...

qStopMotion is a fork of stopmotion for Linux. The main differences between stopmotion for Linux and qStopMotion are:

  • Run on Linux and Windows operating systems. And probably also on MacOS,
  • Redesigned user interface,
  • Minimized using of external tools and replace with Qt functionality,
  • No command line input from the user in the preferences menu.
