iMotion HD is an app that allows you to make stop-motion videos, and time-lapse videos. The time-lapse videos takes continuous photos to create it into a video. The time-lapse option of the app is great if you have an experiment you need to record the movement of. (Ex. Clouds movement, plants growing, crowds growing, etc.) The other option is stop-motion videos. With the stop motion video you can take pictures of small movements to make a sheet of inanimate mysteriously move by itself. Once you have competed taking the picture needed, you can edit the speed of your video. You can make it go as fast, or slow as you want. With the free version of the app unfortunately you cannot directly email or upload your video to YouTube. The only option you have is to save it to your camera roll where you can then upload it to YouTube, or email it.
iMotion HS is a great app for science class. Use a classroom iPad to create a time-lapse video on a plant growing, or a science experiment. You could also have students make stop-motion videos from daily photos on day long experiments.
