Stop Motion Studio for macOS

Customize your movie

Set aspect ratio mask

With Stop Motion Studio you can create movies in a different aspect ratio like square, cinema, 19:9 or traditional 4:3. Choosing the right aspect ratio is an important creative choice that can affect the feel of your movie. Stop Motion Studio will apply a semi-transparent mask to visualize the aspect ratio. When exporting the movie the transparent part of the preview screen will be removed.

  1. While in the movie editor, click the Project Settings button .
  2. Click to change the aspect ratio.
  3. Select a new aspect ratio.
  4. Click Done to close the project settings.

Tip:Independent of the selected aspect ratio, Stop Motion Studio will still capture all images in the native aspect ratio. This way you can change the aspect ratio at any time. Even after images are taken. Stop Motion Studio will use the mask settings to determine the aspect ratio of the rendered movie.
