Development of 1.0 release nearly complete
"Boinx iStopMotion V1.0 Preview finally has the quality we can accept for a 1.0 release," says Oliver Breidenbach, Head of the Boinx Software Division of GeBE Computer & Peripherie GmbH. "We still have to polish some rough edges, but the software is getting close to release quality." For example, Boinx iStopMotion will include comprehensive documentation when the 1.0 final ships.
New cool features
The outstanding new feature is the ability to edit frames directly in an external image editor like Adobe Photoshop. The edited frames are automatically reimported into Boinx iStopMotion after saving in the image editor. Another cool new feature is the blinking mode, where the current video feed is displayed in rapid alteration with the last captured frame. Other new features give the UI a more complete feeling, like the context menus. A full list of the new features can be found in the ReadMe file that accompanies the package.
Free Lite License
Boinx iStopMotion now requires a license to operate. Three licensing options are available: a free Lite license, that has all the features and allows movies to have a resolution of up to 320 x 240 pixels, suitable for Internet-Distribution; a DV license, regularly priced at $39.95 (for non-EU customers) / Euro 41.00 (incl. 16% German VAT for EU customers) allows you to create Movies in DV resolution, suitable for editing with iMovie or Final Cut Pro/Express and distribution on DVD; and a Pro version, that will be available later this year and offer higher resolution. A time limited DV demo license can be obtained from the Boinx iStopMotion website. More details about the licensing model is to be found at http://www.istopmotion.com/about/licensing.
