Who doesn't love LEGO®? Exactly. It's amazing fun to play with as a child and plenty of adults have fun building creations, too. There are plenty of options when it comes to what to build from vehicles and homes to memorable Star Wars pieces such as the Death Star. One of the latest collaborations is that of LEGO® DC Universe Super Heroes and, amongst other things, the release of LEGO® Super Hero Movie Maker.
The app lets kids (and adults) create their own LEGO stop motion movies. The entire user interface is aimed at kids so it's easy to use with simple tools and guides teaching users how to shoot and edit. A series of title cards featuring characters such as Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman add to the experience. Finishing touches such as a choice of pre-recorded soundtracks go one further, as well as color filters.
It all makes for a fun and free way of creating stop motion videos that, of course, will be made all the better with the addition of LEGO® DC Universe Super Heroes toys.
LEGO® Super Hero Movie Maker is out now.
Once upon a time, when the internet was still a little unfriendly to newbies and everything was more complex to figure out, animated GIFs were all the rage and people would flock to fairly complicated animated GIF software in the hope that they could create something spectacular. It rarely worked well without investing a lot of time into the practice.
Now, we live in a world that offers the likes of Jittergram in a free and easy to use package, straight from an iOS device. A few taps of the screen and users can create a 3D stereogram or long stop motion animation via their iOS camera. The app shows the previous frame on top of the current camera view so it's simple to line things up accurately.
The results are quick and easy to view, and pretty impressive with a steady hand and some practice. Once created, users can then share with their friends via Twitter or e-mail.
Best of all? Jittergram is completely free to use.
