StackMotion is a brand-new picture modifying tool from Flambe Studios, the make from PicPlayPost and PopAGraph that enables you to combine photos, video clips, content and music. The application utilizes layers to allow you develop really special tasks.


StackMotion has two primary monitors– the playback screen that allows you to view your job as you develop it and the editing display, which is where you change out your media and fine-tune it to your satisfaction. The editing monitor is where you will invest most of your time, and it is chock complete of choices for editing your job.

The primary step in developing a task is picking the correct media for your background photo and your foreground picture. The foreground is a fixed image, however the background could be powerful with the option to include a scenic photo, a slide program or a video. The moment you have actually the media picked, you can add them to your task by importing them from the video camera roll or taking them live making use of the electronic camera.

As you would anticipate, the background picture becomes your canvas, while the foreground image can be covered up to overlay neatly on the ambient. You also could add content to the job and songs if you choose. The building of the task has the feel of the a non-linear publisher like iMovie, but it is far more straightforward with a brief timeline and just one media aspect per type, i.e., one block of text, one track of music, and so on


. When you are including each sort of media, the StackMotion application has a couple of editing choices that permit you to transform the content, flip your image, use filters, and more. You additionally could establish the content timing so it shows up at first, end or is consistently on the screen. An undo button enables you to remedy errors, while a clear button allows you begin over. When you are done modifying, you can share your project using social networks, upload it to a vide solution like YouTube, release it to Tumblr or export it to your picture roll.

Generally, StackMotion was pleasurable to play with as it allows you to do greater than simply beautify an image. The capacity to make use of a slideshow, a video or a scrolling panorama as your ambient includes a brand-new measurement to the development process. My only problem with the application is a slight one– when you edit an element like text and hit the “Done” button, the app brings you to the playback screen to examine your job and autoplays the clip, which could be frustrating when you are trying to modify silently. I prefer to stay in modifying mode and have the option to evaluate by manually pressing play when I am all set.

StackMotion is available for US$ 1.99 from the iOS App Store.
