The Toonloop Live Stop Motion Animation Software

Toonloop is a live stop motion animation software. It aims at showing the creation process the the audience as well as the result of the creation. The frame by frame animation is made by adding frames one by one to a clip made of many frames. Clips are displayed in a never ending loop.
