Topic: Heron Animation - My free stop-motion capture software and web app
Over the last week I have been working on a stop-motion capture software. It started as an experiment, but since after a day it looked quite well, I decided to continue working on it.
This is still a work in progress, but I have now a working version (although not tested a lot).
I know there are Biscuit and Boat Animator currently under development here. I don't want to appear to step on their toes.

Online web app : http://heronanimation.brunolefevre.net/
UPDATE : You can now try the beta version!
It includes less app-breaking bugs, project management, auto saving, and customizable grids!
Now available in German!
The program has not been tested a lot, you could encounter several bugs. If so, please report them to me.
Will it be DSLR compatible?
I've looked into that, and unfortunately it seems currently out of reach.

Will it there be a mobile app?
Maybe. It's not impossible, I just have to get it work. I'll look into it when the desktop software is stable enough and with enough features.
- More export options
- Maybe masking
Also try Boats Animator!
