Hi - anyone out there have any experience with or know of a good free stop motion app for putting together this type of project. This was assembled using a Mac(ipic) and a digital camera. thanks if you can help.

You can assemble a video out of a still sequence using the Sequence editor right in Blender. Failing that, VirtualDub will also do this.

You may need to run a batch renaming program as you may not have perfectly sequential names for your stills coming from your camera (likely something like dsc00002.jpg, dsc00003.jpg … but if you delete some you’ll have gaps.)

thanks 86point5…haven’t had much experience with Blender sequencer…but will do a wiki and see what’s involved or if there is info on this subject. The YouTube project was done by someone I know…in approx. 250 frames. I’ll also check out VDub. Have you done stop motion work?

Monkey Jam is a good free one. There’s a list of software on this page.

Stop Motion Pro is the best, but it costs.

Enjoy.
