Hi everyone. For those interested the excellent animation prog stop motion pro is out with a new version which includes frame averaging! (a first to be included in an animation package on PC)

busy reviewing films and getting ready for next update
I dunno about frame averaging though, I can get pretty good quality film with my Logitech Quickcam Pro 4000…

As this thread is actually different from the other SMP thread (ie frame averaging talk…)
Ok, I downloaded the demo to test out the averaging feature.
In a nutshell: AWESOME!
I guess those who have been using averaging inbuilt in mac progs know this already, but even if you have a good cam (ie. I was using it with my Kodak DVC 325, which gives a pretty good picture anyway) it improves the quality in a noticeable way.
You can select how many frames to average out 5, 10, 20, 50 (maybe more can’t remember). It seems to work really well in low lighting conditions, for example when you WANT to film in low light for effect (like near the end of good company) .
It also really helps with minor lighting fluctuations helping to mask them as well.
and to move away from that. The Onionskinning is WAY more useable than in version 3.5, and seems to work a whole lot more quickly too.
