"PRESS RELEASE (FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE)
Munich, Germany - April 19th, 2006. RAW is all the vogue these days and iStopMotion, the well known stop motion animation package, makes no exception: Version 1.9.2 now imports all kinds of images from your local harddisk, including RAW images. For the users, this means new creative possibilities.
Import Menu Command
Create movies from images that already exist, that you have scanned in or produced with an application that only creates sequences of images with the new, convenient "Import Images from Disk" command. Or export all frames of an animation, batch process them with a tool like GraphicConverter and re-import them into a movie. You could also use this export-import routine to change the frame rate of a time lapse movie.
The RAW file format, because it is uncompressed and unprocessed when a picture is taken with a digital still camera that supports it, is the format of choice for serious photographers. With iStopMotion 1.9.2 you can use these files for time lapse movies or stop motion animation.
Flipbook printing and Universal Application
With Flipbook printing, which was introduced with version 1.9, kids can print out their animation and take it home to show it to friends and family in an easy and inexpensive way. iStopMotion is a Universal Application since version 1.9, introduced in January 2006 and has been tested on all shipping Intel based Macs.
