Create Stop Motion Animations aka Animated GIFs with Guizero-Wrapped stopmotion.py Program | #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
Simple project – and good tip about guizero – from stuffaboutcode for creating stop motion animations using a simple python script. You can see the source code here and follow the simple step-by-step tut here.
In preparation for a Raspberry Pi event I decided to create a simple GUI for creating stop motion animations using the Pi camera module to use for a demo.
Its a really simple application, you start it up, you click “take image”, you re-position the scene, you click “take image” and so on until you are happy with your animation and you click “save” to store it as an animated gif.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
