"They are making animated films with a mix of stop motion and cg. Bringing the best of both worlds? I think their target is the world, not us, so they are making it look as good as they can. I will refrain from any judgement until I've seen it.…"

"Yeh I can’t quite work out what they’re trying to achieve. The art of Stop Motion is that it isn’t completely polished. That our own hands have done the work. Helped craft it by hand. Not computer. We’ll see eh"

"I dunno about this one. The story seems like fun, but it sure is CGI-looking...and not in an especially good way. I hope Laika doesn't stray too far from their roots."

DSLR vs iPhones Camera 2018

"Would be nice if Stop Motion Studio would have same options/buttons for Android as it has for apple.  It misses zoom and manual camera settings (wb and such, it's just lock or auto) on Android right now (both free and $ versions)."
