Stop Motion How-To: Creating a Flip Book

Have you ever wanted to have your short animations in your pocket to show your friends and family? Boinx, the creators of Istopmotion (a capture program for the Mac), has posted a simple tutorial on there website, explaining how to make a little flip book. The tutorial was specifically made for their Istopmotion program, but you really don't need the program to use the tutorial. The only setback I can see is that your printer probably won't number the pics!

Follow all the steps on Istopmotion's website here, and you should end up with a great little flip book!
