morning everybody!

 I am a Mac user and recently acquired a version of dragon stop motion.

I'm  trying to shoot in HD but it seems that the program doesn't read the image from the camera (Canon HV 20). Looking at the specifications of dragon stop motion says that mac users are able to shoot in HD  if Final Cut Pro is installed in the computer.I do have FCP.

Any clue about this matter?

Thanks!

Have you contacted the Dragonframe support team? That would be the quickest and surest way to get an answer. 

Here's what I found on their board about HD camcorders:

"Most new hi-def consumer camcorders record to an internal hard drive or flash memory. 
These cameras have a USB connection, but this connection is only for downloading movies you've already shot. There is no way to pull a live video feed from them. So they are not suitable for stop motion animation.
If you are buying a camcorder for stop motion, make sure to get one with HDV (via Firewire) or HDMI output."
