Version v2.12
Review by StudioHApps

Worked as advertised - I bought this to create a movie from a series of rendered images. The program worked as advertised. It was quick and created a good movie file. It's a great deal for the price and much easier than any other solution that I could find.

Version v2.30
Review by Mark_2112

This could’ve been the one. - This is exactly the sort of tool I’ve been looking for to make a video of stop-motion images. And it seems to work on small sets of images. But point it at a few thousand images and it fills memory. Even with a memory cleaner (which should not be necessary!), it filled the 32g of ram on my system shortly after starting, eventually grinding the system to a halt, and needing to be killed off. Here's hoping that the developer can work that issue out, because this is just what I’ve been looking for.

Version v2.30
Review by j6471

Does what I wanted - This app does what I wanted, which was to take a folder of 20 pngs and make them into a 20 second movie. It would be nice to be able to enter fps values less the one per second, but this is pretty good as is and I understand that has to be limited somehow. This app definately was worth it.

Version v2.30
Review by Royaltb

Cant select indivual files. Very basic app - This app doesnt help me in anyway. Its so simple and you cant select the files you want, it makes you select the whole folder which is time consuming and not what I expected. I really wish i didnt spend my money on this. And it won’t even play on IPHONE. or loop itself
