Dragonframe for Mac4.2.0

13 May 2020

Stop-motion animation software for creative professionals.

What is Dragonframe for Mac

Dragonframe is professional-grade software for stop-motion animation, motion design, and visual effects.

Animate your way

Step directly between live view and captured frames or switch to auto-toggle. Loop playback to get the sense of movement you’re aiming for. The playback and stepping functions are fully customizable for your needs.

Reference material

Load multiple reference stills or videos and view them with your animation. Blend them with opacity, pull a chromakey (blue screen), and even assign a garbage matte to see just the part you want. Pop out reference videos into a synchronized player if you want it off to the side.

Keypad controls

With the Dragonframe keypad, you can stay focused on animating instead of hunting around with the mouse. And the hotkeys are fully configurable, so if you really like a feature that is not on the keypad, you can move it there.

Version: 2.3.3
First off: I have only used the demo version. The reason for that is the price seemed a little too high for me. BUT, having said that, Dragon Stop motion has a really clean interface, and I found the interface preferable to other stop motion software I have tried. The two big holdups for me on this app are: 1) The price (though I'd be willing to pay if it could overcome #2 below): 2) It does not work with my camera (which is NOT Dragon Stop Motions Fault); none of the stop motion programs I have tried will work with my camera because I don't have the proper connection - you need a camera that supports live view. It turns out that my camera comes with it's own live view software, which is nice, but it doesn't have any of the fantastic features of Dragon Stop motion. You find yourself doing onion skins manually, which works, but is really time consuming compared to this software. Dragon stop motion works great with the iSight, and other (lower resolution) cameras that I have. The app is great, and my main goal was to see if I could use my HD camera in a stop motion application.

First of all - this is a professional piece of software. With a price to match. In my opinion it is worth it. Every penny (or cent). Had some problem with crashing using the time-lapse function when hooked up to my HDV-camera, but the developer sent me a new version to try the next day. The new version works like a charm! It is a bit of an resource hog, and it spends its time around 100%+ when doing time-lapse, but it don't seem to slow the computer down, so I guess it uses as much as it can while still being a good citizen. When doing stop motion it's very efficient, and has a dark theme - perfect for use in a studio to prevent to much spill from the screen. I haven't tried all functions yet, but provides all you need for animation, including x-sheet, audio, time-lapse, cinematography functions and multi-exposure shooting. And, yes, it is perfect for (and I guess made for) use with DSLR. With some cameras (as of now, Nikon and Canon) you can control everything from the application. If the camera has LiveView it will use that. If not, you can attach a videocamera to get a live view of you scene. Oh, and it comes with it's own controller with a 10' (or 3 meter) cord. So, all I can say is - download it, spend some time with it and you'll love it.
