Hi my name is Wack (or James) and im a new brickfilmer!

I have tried reading some getting started topics but im not sure how to start?

I have a Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T50,a Nikon D70, a Mac Book Pro (older version) with a webcam built into it, I also have a Lodgitech QuickCam Communitcate STX .

Can someone help me to get started by telling my which software(I have Frame by Frame) to pick up(i have a low budget,very low) and I look forward to meeting you all soon! 8-)

I’m not familiar with Macs, so I can’t help you much with software. Good luck, though.

Hello there and welcome!

From what I hear, Frame By Frame is pretty good. I use Boinx iStopmotion and it’s pretty awesome, so I recommend you get that when you’ve got some cash on you.

I looked up your cameras. They seemed pretty cool, but I couldn’t quite work out if they have manual everything, which is, of course, essential for stop-motion.

Hi Hazzat!

I just figured out my Lodgitech webcam doesn’t work on Mac!

How would i use the other cameras if you knew and would it be worth my while investing in a webcam like QC 9000?

How much does istopmotion cost too?
Thanks for the support! :)

Well, the 9000 doesn’t work on a Mac either! Your best best would be the Logitech Quickcam Pro 4000.

And for iStopmotion:

Yea, the quickcam is your best option there, and framebyframe, I used to use that with my mac but then we got this dell but if you can’t buy istopmotion then framebyframe will do fine.
