Two of my teachers have emailed me today for Stopmotion video iPad app suggestions. Here’s what I sent them. If you have alternative suggestions please let me know with a comment or Twitter reply to @wfryer.

Here are 2 StopMotion apps which are free and work well:

Stop Motion Cafe: (this is the one my STEM kids used extensively the past 2 years)
https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/stop-motion-cafe/id492389084?mt=8

Lego MovieMaker
https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/lego-movie-maker/id516001587?mt=8

There are lots more available but you have to be careful because some are FREE but you have to pay an in-app upgrade to do things like export to video to the camera roll. For some of those, there are full featured versions that we can buy, so no in-app purchases are needed. I’ll be glad to help you with either of these – let me know. 🙂

Here’s a 5 minute video I recorded for my students a couple years ago about how to use Stop Motion Cafe to make Lego stopmotion:

More resources and student stopmotion video example projects are available on the Lego Stopmotion page / Maker Studio page of my STEM curriculum site.

Update: Kelly Dumont recommends the free app KOMA KOMA for stopmotion videos, so we’re going to also give that one a try on our school iPads.
