Hi all,

I'm one of the developers of OpenToonz, a free and open source 2D animation program.  I recently overhauled the stop motion capabilities of the program.

Please test it out and let me know what works and what needs tweaked.  It supports webcams and Canon DSLR cameras.  

The test version is only released for Windows right now, but we have also tested on Macs and it works too.

You can try it out here:

OpenToonz Stop Motion Test

Thanks,
Jeremy

Thank you for your offer to help us out.  At the moment we're just feeling our way through OpenToonz and other programs.  We still have some hardware decisions to make, too.  I look forward to exploring Tahoma when we're a little more settled and can appreciate its advantages.

I've got 3 computers running windows 8. In the main one (without internet connection) Tahoma works OK. In the others I receibed a lot of "missing DLLs" messages. I got tahoma working in one of them doing about 50 pending updates to the windows. In this PC some operations like saving a brush preset cause the program close without previous warning.

In the third PC it doesn't work in any form. The missing DLLs message dissapeared when I updated the system but running program causes the error of the image:

It indicates error on ucrtbase.dll. I don't know if this helps in any form.

I think it works in the main PC (that is not updated but has a lot of programs installed) due some program installed a library or DLL or something that Tahoma needs.

At the moment I am very happy with the program working in my main system. I will notify if have some trouble or malfunction.

Thanks for your amazing work

Hi Jeremy

Have just downloaded the 1.4 version of Open Toonz to try as an alternative to Dragonframe.

I have a Canon 450 D. The live view screen opens but there is no response when I try to capture, nor is there a response from the zoom control.

I noticed on your youtube clip;'OpenToonz-New Stop Motion Features' that the words 'Stop Motion' appear in the top task bar next to 'Basics'. This does not appear on my screen. I am wondering if I don't have the right version or possibly add-ons to make this function properly?

Any help would be appreciated

Thanks Allan

450D is an older model that uses a different command to take pictures.  I'll add a fix to Tahoma.  Would you be willing to check it?

Hi Jeremy

That would be great! How do I go about checking it? I am a bit of a novice at computer tech.

Thanks 

Allan

Hi Jeremy

I tried to check Tahoma to see if it worked with my Canon 450 D but it didn't open. Wasn't sure what to do with the 2 zip folders? Do you have a simple you tube  video for dummies on how to down load it?

Many Thanks 

Allan

Tahoma version 1.0 is now out.  Allen, I think I got support for the 450D in there.  To use it, you download the zip file, unzip it, and run the Tahoma program inside.

1.0 has support for Canon Raw now too.

Wow!  This version works fine in all my computers!

Thanks for this wonderful tool!

Antonio.
