Try animating – the Aardman way

Ever watched Wallace and Gromit or Morph (remember him?) and wanted to try animating for yourself? Well, creating a stop motion animation has never been easier (according to Aardman) now that you can get Aardman’s Animate It! software on your iPhone and iPad.

Use your phone’s camera to shoot frames of your animation, using the software to help you line up each shot and stitch it all together. There’s also lots of animation hints, tips and inspiration to get you started on the official Animate It website.
