    Make a stop motion video

    What is stop motion?
    Stop Motion Animation is a technique used in animation to bring static objects to life on screen. This is done by moving the object in increments while filming a frame per increment. When all the frames are played in sequence it shows movement.

    All you need is to take the right pictures and Stupeflix will do the rest!

  • First imagine a scene and define the movements you want to make
  • Then take many pictures, one for each step.
  • Upload your pictures in the Stupeflix video editor
  • Define a custom duration for each picture, the smallest being 0.5 second (even if you choose 0.5 sec, the editor will display 1 sec, don’t worry, that’s normal)
  • Choose a video style that works nicely with stop motion: you can try Party, Comics, Outline or Classic for example.
  • Depending on the effect you want you can add Sharp Cut custom transitions between each photos.

    There you go, a fun video with stop motion effect is ready :) Made using Classic

  • Try more video styles!

    For all of you who are enjoying our free offer with two of our most popular videos styles Scrapbook and Outline, you now have the possibility to try out other video styles.
    You will get to use it for the preview of your video and if you like it, you can buy the style for $3, after that it stays in your account forever and you can make unlimited videos in 360p with it.

    If you want more because you make lots of videos either for yourself or for your business, you can go Pro for $39/month (or $25/month if you buy annually) that unlocks everything: all video styles, 360p and 720p export, white label videos, unbranded pages, text-to-speech…

    Manage Music and Volume of your videos

    Today I give you a little clarification on how to manage audio and volume in your video. Hope this helps.

    MUSIC IN YOUR VIDEO:

    Each video can have two audio tracks which will start playing at the same time.
    An audio track can be a song chosen from our or your music library, or a voice-over file uploaded from your computer, or text spoken by a computer voice (Text-to-Speech PRO feature).

    The audio can be put either on the whole video or on a single element (text slide or picture for example).
    You can drag & drop the audio and text-to-speech from one place to the other (for example: from the global video to a specific element)

    MusicVolume Manage Music and Volume of your videos

    VOLUME OF AUDIO ELEMENTS:

    You can manage the volume of your global soundtrack (green bar), the text-to-speech (purple bar) but also of your video clips.

    Global Soundtrack:
    Click on the down pointing arrow at the right end of the green bar and choose “Edit”, there you will see the following options:

    • Volume from 0% to 200%
    • Option to “Lower the volume of other soundtracks when this one is playing”
    • Loop this soundtrack

    Text-To-Speech:
    Click on the down pointing arrow at the right end of the purple bar and choose “Edit” to get the following options:

    • Enter the text that you want the computer voice to say
    • Change the computer voice
    • Volume from 0% to 200%
    • Option to “Lower the volume of other soundtracks when this one is playing”

    Video clips:
    Roll your mouse over the video clip in your timeline and click on the down pointing arrow that appears, there you can choose:

    • Volume from 0% to 200%
    • Option to “Lower the volume of other soundtracks when this one is playing”
    • Playback speed
    • Option to reverse the video

    Here is a small video showing you how I add audio and manage volume in a video.

    New voices for text-to-speech

    We’ve added 3 new computer voices, you can now choose between:
