iStopMotion for iPad is a very exciting looking new iPad app that lets you create stop motion animations on the iPad. Stop motion animations are also called claymation or stop action movies. Whenever I think about claymation I think of the wonderful Wallace and Gromit films. This app was a winner of a Macworld Best of Show award this year, and it looks like just the sort of app I wouldn’t be surprised to see Apple show off at their expected iPad 3 unveiling event next month.

Here’s are a few of the app’s headline features:

— Camera Overlay – Overlay the current live camera image with the previous one and see the changes unfold before your eyes. Animate more quickly and with a higher degree of accuracy.

— Instant Playback – Being able to play back your work at any time without a long wait leads to instant gratification.

— Beautiful Timeline – Never get lost in your movie, even if there are hundreds of frames.

— Share to Camera Roll, Email, YouTube – Move the world, one frame at a time. Edit your masterpiece in iMovie or publish it directly to YouTube.

— Remote Camera – Position your camera more conveniently or use the better optics of iPhone 4S with iStopMotion Remote Camera (download separately from the app store)

I wish I was anywhere near creative enough to put this app to use. Sadly I’m not even good at using iMovie. If you’re a creative type and get a chance to try it out, I’d love to hear your thoughts on it in the comments.

Here’s an App Store link for iStopMotion for iPad; it’s priced at $4.99, which is listed as a special introductory price.
