Hello everybody, this is my first post, and I just had a few questions. First, I use a Mac, but have access to a PC and may run Windows on a future Mac. In the meantime, what is the best (hopefully free) stop frame program for Macs? :what?: I know MonkeyJam is great, but it is windows only, and I am looking for a similar alternative. Also, I have a (FireWire) iSight camera, a USB Dynex DX-WEB1C camera, a Canon Digital Rebel XS (10MP) and last but defiantly not least, a Canon XL2 MiniDV camera with FireWire……. which should I use? the XL2 has 4:3 and 16:9 modes, which could come in handy, but it is huge! 😯 (And probably, no, is overkill.) In addition, what programs are best for special effects? (Like rain, explosions, etc.) I realize gun shots and such are sometimes added with GIMP or PhotoShop. Mac or PC? Any help insight is great!

‘Ello everyone, I’m Dawley. I used to visit this site on an almost daily basis from 2004-2006, and it’s been a while since I last visited. I figured that it was finally time to register on the site, considering that I never did in the first place.
Also: before I realised that this thread existed, I posted up a similarly-titled thread. Hah. My apologies, everyone.February 21, 2010 at 1:28 am #411719
Hey I’m Michael but more known as Legomaniacman. I visited the site a couple of times and now I look more and sence I have LEGO films, why not join here and let you give me constructive criticism
I don’t want to be a master I just like to improve my hobby.
I use photostory,moviemaker, photostory mod, and gimp to add lights. Its all free except lego, and I know there is a better way to make films but I don’t feel like upgrading lol. Maybe in the future.February 26, 2010 at 12:50 am #411746

Hi my names UnholyZephyr, but you can just call me Unholy. I started brickfilming with my cell phone mounted on a lego cradle and secured with a bit of tissues. Right now i’m just getting brickarms guns and trying to get a webcam. One question: should I use a video camera or take pictures and make a slideshow?March 4, 2010 at 11:43 pm #411779
