The Stop Motion Pro Eclipse Network editions are designed for easy rollout across a school network.


The license allows an unlimited number of PCs, laptops and Windows laptops to be used.



BYOD   Disconnect for up to 30 days and still make animated films!


Eclipse is a feature rich, high res stop motion animation program that let's you get right to animating and not bogged down by a huge learning curve or too much tech.

Matthew Murphy




Key benefits: 
  • Eclipse is designed to minimize network traffic as the students create their films
  • You configure the roll-out for your network topology
  • Storage 'server' can be a NAS, Lynix, or other technologies
  • Compatible with virtualized servers
  • Disconnect laptops or Windows tablets from the network for up to 30 days


How it works:
  • Once unlocked, the local network server holds its license, without requiring an internet connection.
  • The workstations can be removed from the local network for up to 30 days and still use Eclipse.
  • To refresh workstation licenses, connect the computer to the local network and run Eclipse.  An internet connection is not required.


Roll-out process:
  • Your staff install Stop Motion Pro Eclipse on a central server. Individual licenses are not required for on-site computers or laptops and unlimited users are allowed.

  • A MSI installer package, customized for your school IT policies, is created using the Eclipse Network wizard application.

  • The MSI can be deployed using your existing processes and software. It can also be used in a virtulized environment. 

  • Students and teachers can take their laptops home and use Eclipse for up to 30 days before reconnecting to the server.

  • The Network instalation manual can be downloaded from here.
