Easily create stop motion movies or slideshows from still photographs, drawings, a scanner, a webcam, or connected camera. Zoetrope helps you create that perfect animation of your Lego creation or any other series of photographs to make a stop motion animation.
Pick a music file from your music library to add audio to the animation.
New cel-animation feature to draw animation cels with pen, mouse, or touch.
Save the animations to h.264 MP4, Windows Media WMV, or uncompressed AVI files.
If you have a scanner you can now use it directly in Zoetrope to add photos - either using the flatbed or auto sheet feeder - great for paper-based animation projects.
You can now use two PCs connected wirelessly (Bluetooth, TCP/IO or Wi-Fi Direct) to automatically take photos simultaneously and then easily pass photos and movies between the two.
