- How does stop motion animation software help get better results?
It’s true that you could achieve satisfactory results using slideshow creation software, however, stop motion software offers more advanced features.
- How long does it take to create a stop motion animation?
The duration of the final result and the FPS count are both huge factors in how long it takes to create such an animation, more so if you’re a beginner. Roughly speaking, it may take anywhere from several hours to even days for just one minute of animation.
