Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Previewing the animation, part of Getting Started with Stop Motion Animation.
…Reviewing your results as you work is a great way to learn about animation.…It lets you see what works and what doesn't.…Remember, to do that, you just tap the Play button and…iStopMotion will play back all the frames it's recorded so far.…Let's pause that.…That's the most basic controls, but it also…offers several additional options that I find quite useful.…Tapping the gear icon here I could bring up the settings.…You'll note, for example, that we could choose to turn…off the onion skinning and just look at the clip.…This makes it easier when you pause the frame to really see what's going on.…
So, if I don't want to see any ghosting from one frame to the next.…This makes it a bit easier to…critically evaluate the frames and decide what's there.…If you want to get rid of a frame, maybe it was too long of…a pause, just tap the wrench icon there and a pop-up menu comes up.…I could choose to delete all of the frames or, in…this case, I just want to get rid of the one frame.…And it removes it from the timeline.…
