Easily create stop motion movies or slideshows from still photographs, drawings, a scanner, a webcam, or connected camera. Zoetrope helps you create that perfect animation of your Lego creation or any other series of photographs to make a stop motion animation.

NEW: Rotoscope tool for creating hand-drawn animations over video frames.

Add background color or image to cel animation drawing Print out a zoetrope device with a 3D printer (and the paper strips). Print a flipbook of your animation. Once you have created your animation, you can save it a video file, upload it to YouTube, or print it out as a flipbook.

Pick a music file from your music library to add audio to the animation.

Cel-animation feature to draw animation cels with pen, pencil, mouse, or touch - and now with the ruler tool for the Windows Anniversary Update.

Save the animations to h.264 MP4, Windows Media WMV, or uncompressed AVI files.

If you have a scanner you can now use it directly in Zoetrope to add photos - either using the flatbed or auto sheet feeder - great for paper-based animation projects.

    Zoetrope is amazing!!!! by joseph

    I just wanted to say that Zoetrope is awesome. I made a long police chase stop motion video. My family and friends liked it! Please install this app in your tablet, iPod, or whatever. You'll really like it.

    MEH by Lily

    This product is ok, but the free version does not allow you to make a longer-than-30-sec video, and use a webcam or iPhone to take pictures. Kinda useless if you asked me.

    Pretty good by Eli

    This is a pretty good app but every time I want to take another picture, it makes me close one page, select take picture and take another. Other than that it is a great app.

    Good $h!t by Eddie

    I'm starting to get the hang of this program. And may I also add their help desk is awesome. I had a question about the cels on the photos and they hit me back in no less than 24hrs. Thank You. But there is this tiiiiiny little thing. I'm now having trouble erasing and find myself using the white color to do it because the ERASER seems to delete in strokes... not by section. But that's it. I'm excited about my clip can't wait to show it to you.

    Great app till it crashes by Unknown

    The app was fun and easy to use. Unfortunately it started crashing on me after my first project was finished during my next animation.

    I like it, sans the bugs by Keegan

    I'm mostly interested in this app for the cel animation, which is nothing fancy but, then, I don't need it to be. I've been able to make a couple little test animations with it but I find that the cursor jumps around a ton when I try drawing, as though the app is registering both my pen and hand touches. Furthermore, when I closed and then reopened the app, it was showing all the lines I had erased, which doesn't make any sense and more or less forced me to redraw everything. I've further found that, if I switch from project 1 to project 2, all the cells I drew for project 1 will no longer be in the "Draw Animation Cels" window. This basically means that I cannot change projects until I have finished them. Also, "duplicate last cel" almost never works. And I can't actually draw in color though it says I can. And the select tool doesn't seem to work. This app has a lot of potential, but also a lot of bugs and design flaws.
