The digital experiences we build these days depend highly on the transitions of the interface and the visual elements to represent the brand. These transitions or animations not only serve the function of making elements interactive but also add character to those interactive elements, hence speaking the brand language.
With this thought in mind, we decided to explore animations in our most recent Method PLAY at our London studio. Of course the fact that we have the gorgeous new space which is very inviting to the PLAY sessions only made it better. Stop motion animation is one of the techniques of animation which allows exploration without the necessity of great drawing skills.
To cut down the post production time, I researched a few mobile applications and decided to work with iTimelapse Pro for iPhone. It offers flexibility for production (manual, timer, sound initiated picture capture settings) and post production (rendering at desired frame rate or to output desired number of seconds of video from the images captured). It also renders video to a chosen soundtrack.
