    Hi all…

    I have a couple of questions. This world is so incredibly new and confusing to me! Our son (11 yr. old) is very much into this stop animation movie-making. He has been using my iPod to take pictures. He then puts them into iMovie to do whatever he does to make a movie. We want to take things to the next level for him, but I am at a loss for what to do. Christmas is coming, and I thought – what a perfect time to get him stuff. So, we have a Mac that he uses primarily, but we are one of ‘those’ families that not everyone has their own computer. This is the family comp – and it is in the main living area. All that to say, his ‘studio’ is in his room, so, that gives you some idea of maybe what we can and cannot do for him at this time.

    We don’t have a real fandango camera. Basically, I would like to know if there is another software out there, compatible with Mac, what would give him more functionality than iMovie. If so, what is it? Are there any other resources you would recommend for us to help him explore this new interest?

    Tips and all the help I can get would be fantastic. Options, options, options – give us lots of ideas, and we’ll see what we can afford.

    Thanks much,
    The Mom

    I think it is a wise decision to change your OS from Mac to Windows. There are many compatible software and hardware for windows than mac. In other words, you can minimize your budget when buying a good quality product for your son to use because Windows has a large range of compatibility system.

    Mmmm… I hope “Mom” and the others are still active here seeing that it’s 2011 since she last posted her thread. It would be nice to have them here. ^.^
