Ever seen stop motion animations like cartoons where objects are physically manipulated so that they appear to be moving? You must have seen such videos as they are interesting and catch your attention. If you own an android device then you might want to try your creativity in doing something similar.
Gifinator is a well application which creates stop-motion animations, or animations in simple words, using a couple of pictures snapped in a sequence on your android device. The interface is simplistic with a + button on the top right corner to start creating a new animation.
On the next screen you have a couple of buttons at the bottom and a big camera image in the middle of the screen.
The first button from the left is for camera settings like auto focus and onion skin transparency. When you set a transparency level here whenever you take a picture a transparent image of the taken image will be there on the screen so that it helps you while clicking the next picture. It might look like an illusion on the screen but you will understand the importance while using it.
The next button from the left is for applying an effect to the picture you are about to click. Effects include aqua, blackboard, sepia etc.
The middle X button is to delete a particular picture that you have captured. Just tap on a taken image and press X to delete it. Then we have a button with a small clock which is for setting timers to click pictures automatically. Here you can set the capture interval in seconds and the total no of frames to be taken.
Coming to the functionality of the app, you need to click a couple of pictures first. To do so touch the camera image in the middle of the screen or anywhere on the screen to click a picture. Now click a couple of pictures in a sequence, for eg, opening a door, waving your hand etc.
After you have done so, click the right button at the bottom right to proceed. On the next page the app will create an animation for you with all those gif images.
Further you can press the settings button to select a resolution of your choice.
You can also use the rotate button present in the middle of the screen to change the orientation of an animation from portrait to landscape or vice versa.
At last press the right most button to share or save the animation.
App Requirements: Compatible with all android devices. Requires android 2.2 or later.
Conclusion: Works well but it has some bugs. Worth a free download
