It’s never been easier to create original animated movies!
Everyone has a story to tell and Frames is the perfect tool to tell it with. Frames combines illustration tools and stop-motion tools into an award-winning, easy-to-use animation package.
Frames is used by hobbyists to create cartoons and stop-motion animation, students to create claymations and digital stories for curriculum projects, and after-school programs to create Lego® animations.
Frames 5 Introduction Video
Creating your own animated cartoons is a snap with drawing tools, clip art, and path animation options. Quickly clone frames and use the onion skin to line up your characters and adjust their movements.
Make stop-motion animations and claymations
Capture frames with a web cam or dv camera, use time lapse options, or import from a connected camera to build claymations, LEGO® stop-motion, and cut-paper animations.
Tell digital stories
Tell your stories with text, pictures, and your own narration. Pan and zoom on each frame and record your voice to one of three soundtracks. Use the chroma key to place yourself anywhere in the world or in your own illustrated fantasy land.
Frames is easy to use
We take pride in an interface that is both powerful and easy-to-use. Frames makes it easy to draw your own illustrations, clone frames to create animation, edit images and sounds, record narration, and make changes to your story and timeline.
Frames helps you work with your friends
Frames lets you collaborate in real time with other people on your local network, making it simple to create a movie without everyone having to huddle around the same screen.
Frames makes it easy to share your content
All movies published from Frames are compressed with industry-standard H.264, so you can share them with friends on multiple devices and online. Schools and districts using Frames can even post movies directly to K12Share.
Resources for the Classroom!
