Toonloop is a software application for live stop-motion animation.[2] "Live" means that the animation is constantly playing while being edited. Toonloop allows to create stop-motion animation, pixilation, and other animation techniques and the result is constantly seen while the user is adding images to the animation. It is a project of Alexandre Quessy[3] with help from Tristan Matthews.[4]

Alexandre Quessy presented artistic performances using this software at SAT[5] and ETS[6] in Canada and at the Piksel 09 Festival in Norway.[7][8]

Toonloop is free and open-source software subject to the terms of the GNU General Public License (GPL). It is programmed in C++ and GTK+ as well as GStreamer. It has a Debian package.[9] Toonloop was mentioned briefly at the 2009 Open Video Conference.[10]

Toonloop has also been the topic of blogs.[11]


Toonloop can be used to create time-lapse animations.[7]
