See MyStopAction in action on youtube - http://www.youtube.com/user/mystopaction. The channel includes a tutorial - made using MyStopAction itself!

Your movies are made up of a series of photos - take each photo in turn, with a semi-transparent overlay (onion skin) of the previous frame to guide you. Alternatively, use the time lapse mode to capture a changing scene over time, or choose photos from your library.

Then use the simple editing and playback tools to build your very own stop motion animation or time lapse movie.

Apply visual effects, including:

- text captions

- wipes and crossfades between scenes

- fade in and out

- black and white

- sepia tint

- red, green and blue tints

- custom color tinting

Finally, record an audio soundtrack to accompany your creation.

Movies can be saved to your library, where you can then view and share them with others via YouTube, email, etc. Movies can also be exported as a series of photos to your library. Your videos can be exported and previewed in reverse!

Recreate your favorite movie scenes in stop motion!

Finally, I'm going to beg one more time for more reviews. Particularly you folks from the US of A! And if you don't want to comment publicly or have private suggestions - please send me an email!

(A quick reply to Hennery's comment: try turning on the "fast photo mode" in the options - this will let you snap away happily without returning you to the UI after every shot.)

Need better instructions

I'm trying to make a stop action movie using the take new photo option. After taking the first pic, there doesn't seem to be a way to do anything. The only way I can take another image is to navigate out of the app, open it again, click retake, then cancel, then I'm finally back to the main screen. There must be a simpler way to do this, but I can't find any detailed instructions. So I can only rate this app one star.
