Easy Claymation Animation Techniques Using iStopmotion

Clay animation or "claymation" is a form of stop motion animation in which characters, props and/or the decor is made from plasticine clay (or something similar) so that you can manipulate the characters to "move". If you take pictures of the different stages of the movement and then quickly show all the pictures after each other, you have an animation of your characters' movements.

This post provides an overview of the possibilities of the animation application iStopmotion, you can download and buy from http://boinx.com/download/#istopmotion.
