Lego Super Heroes Movie Maker app

Helego! Have you ever wanted an easy and fast way to make stop motion videos? Well Lego made this app for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad.

It's called as you probably already guessed by the title Lego Super Heroes Movie Maker. So first off, it's very simple to use. Here is the menu. As you can see, the big red button is to start making your movie, the blue button shows all the ones you have already made and the yellow button shows how the app works.


This is the movie gallery


So, when you start making your video, you have to select a title screen and put in a title:


Once you have done that, you can right away start taking your pictures. Start by thinking which characters you will use and a story line. I made it very basic. Captain America hitting an alien. So place everything together and take your first picture by tapping on the screen. This is what it looks like:


To be more precise, you can use a grid to keep your picture centered


You can also use "onion skin". This shows you the last picture you took in "ghost form" so that you can see how much you have moved your scene


Once you are done taking all your pictures, you press "done" of course and then if you want, you can add some music, frames with a word like "POW" and select the number of pictures per second.




Once you are sure you are completley done, it will create the movie for you and after, you can save it to your photo gallery or upload it directly to youtube! Here is the final product of my video:

I will be doing more posts about recent Lego apps like this. It's easier and it's more of quality than when I do it with a video in the dark. So I hope you have lot's of fun with this app!

You can type in your comment and then, beside "comment as", click on the arrow and select "anonymous" or "name/URL". For the last one, I suggest you just enter in your name. Also, there is a little bug. You have to double click on "post comment". Not just one click or if not it will not work.
