    I’ve made a couple films and I’m having trouble keeping the animation smooth. I’ve had the frames per second as high as 30 or so on Pinnacle Studios 7 (it doesn’t really do stop-motion well) So far I haven’t used any programs besides Pinnacle Studios 7 but I’m looking for a good stop-motion frame capture program because books I have read on stop-motion reccomend one instead of a regular movie capturer.
    So is there any tips you can give me on keeping the animation smooth?

    move your minifigs just a little and then take a picture and take 15 pictures for a second of film, that will be smooth enough :)

    Well, all I can tell you is that the higher your framerate is set, the smaller the movement from frame to frame needs to be.

    I don’t know how it works with Pinnacle but with Premiere, you must lower the duration of single frames in the settings

    Good luck!

    Premiere is basically the same as Pinnacle Studios only Pinnacle Studios crashes more.

    I highly recommend Anasazi Stop Motion Animator. You can onion skin, play out what you’ve filmed so far without ending the capturing, and do plenty with the frame settings. If it’s possible for you, I’d use that.
