Hmm...the third one could have been a little better, the fourth wasn't so bad. Keep it up!

The lightsaber special effects took FOREVER!!

I mean I had to GIMP every lightsaber by hand!! I downloaded LS Maker but it doesn't work for me...

Oh and I might make a "real" full-length(meaning 5-10 minutes) movie...

Oh the usual Star Wars . Razz

No really, I am going to have it based around my sig-fig, who is a bounty hunter....
So I might do voices and all... maybe we can have a sign-up for voices....

And Maggosh, what program do you use to record voices? (other than a mic)

I would recommend Audacity. It can be found at http://audacity.sourceforge.net/

I am downloading it now... Thanks!

So do you have a link or a tutorial that I can see so I can learn how to use it?

Or is it really basic and easy to use?

It's pretty straight forward, if all you're doing is recording and exporting. Just click the round, red button to start recording and click the tan, square button to stop, then click the green triangle button to play back. Or is that too complicated for you?

I still don't get why webcameras are better then digital cameras....

Is it because the pics can be automatically sent into the computer?

No, because web cams have a live feed.

Web cams have a live video stream from the camera to the computer, so it is compatible with programs like SMA, MonkeyJam, etc.

No wonder I can't use MonkeyJam!!!! Mad

So what other free stopmotion program can I use besides WMM that is compatible to a digital camera?

Actually, you CAN use MonkeyJam; it has a feature which allows you to import pictures from a digital camera into the program and export as a .avi.

If you do sign-ups don't do it in the Guild area. I want to help! Although my voice sounds like crap through a mic I want to help out!

File > Import > Images...

Then just make sure you have your camera hooked up, then import from there.

But when I plug in my camera, my Upload software automatically pops up... so do I ignore it?

Well, it's your choice. You could either upload the pictures from your camera to your computer and then into MonkeyJam, or you could upload them directly from your camera. You get the same outcome either way.
