Yeah, I am waiting to upgrade to a better laptop just for some extra speed. What are the specs on the laptop you are currently using? And yes, Boats is a great program, I love it!

Boats Animator 0.10.0 - Export To Video

Boats Animator 0.10.0 is now available. This version brings exports to video, short play and you don’t need to change directory every time you start the app anymore.

Captured frames now have a unique id in their file names that is generated on start up. This removes the risk of overwriting data and removes the need for the “current save directory already contains captured frames!” warning message.

Yes! Great update! Love this software. Top notch stuff! mini/bigsmile

Re: Boats Animator - free, open-source stop motion program

I am leaving boats animator for a bit. I am leaving boats animator and going to Tahoma2D only because boats currently does not have built-in camera controls. LWS is a nightmare for me, and sometimes the webcam controller wont launch, so I often have to delete LWS and then re-install it. Tahoma has full camera controls, so I have to make the switch. Let me know when boats gets camera controls! mini/smile

Boats Animator 0.10.1

Boats Animator 0.10.1 is now available. This minor release fixes video export not working if the folder path contains spaces.

Behind the scenes, I am currently working on moving the app from NW.js to Electron. This is a much better supported tool and should pave the way for big features in the future such as project support. mini/smile

Re: Boats Animator - free, open-source stop motion program

Just downloaded. This software is awesome! My new go-to. mini/smile

Re: Boats Animator - free, open-source stop motion program

Downloading now. Can't wait to see what this is like. I must really be behind the times still having MonkeyJam! mini/lol

Re: Boats Animator - free, open-source stop motion program

MonkeyJam was my thing until now, so don't worry. I'm behind too!

Re: Boats Animator - free, open-source stop motion program

How long should the “confirming take” last? I’m getting rather worried now.

EDIT: Ignore

It's great to see this project still getting attention, looks solid mini/yes

Can I recommend implementing an x-sheet in a future update?

Re: Boats Animator - free, open-source stop motion program

So I’m looking into to getting a webcam, because my current camera can’t connect to software.
I was wondering, does boats animator have direct webcam control, like setting exposure, and other camera settings?

It currently does not. But hopefully it will soon!
So for now you need another program like LWS (logitech webcam software) to control the settings.
