Well here is a very pleasant surprise. photo2video is the underwhelming name of this new and unique stop-motion video app that will delight and amaze you and your friends alike. This rather plain looking app with the even plainer name appears to be nothing more than a simple photo editing app but what lies inside its inconsequential outer package is far more interesting. With this simple yet rewarding app you can capture a set of photos and create your very own stop motion short movie and, just maybe, set you on the way to become the next Martin Scorsese or Nick Park.
photo2video is an unusual photo application that lets you capture a set of original photographs, edit and recolor them and create a unique video that you can share on your favorite social network. Set up the app on your smartphone and create a series of stop action photographs of your subject. Just move your object in a natural progression and take a picture at each step. You can insert extra things like a title page and even 'the end' at the finish, to make a pretty professional short film. Alternatively, you could paint a picture and capture it in various stages as it grows into a finished product. When plugged in, the app can take up to 999 photographs to string together to make your film pretty damned impressive. You can paint your individual photos in edit mode, duplicate them, add blank pages or other 'subliminal' images and even change the order of your shots for the 'Matrix' effect. It sounds complicated but, believe me, photo2video is an easy to use photo app that the budding filmmaker will spend hours playing with.
Theoretically, assuming the app is plugged in, you can record 23,976 hours of 'footage' with photo2video and take and edit almost 1000 different images. This is the sort of stuff that would have cost a small fortune to produce thirty years ago but, with technology moving at a rapid rate at the moment, you can purchase this unique and extremely entertaining photo and video gem for around six bucks - and it's worth every cent. Export or save your short films in your device or share them with your Facebook friends or va email. Alternatively you can share them with YouTube and be on your way to becoming a YouTube sensation or maybe the next stop motion king. After all, this is just what Park did to make the wonderful and much loved Wallace and Gromit series.
