I'm looking for recommendations on stop motion applications. I looked into DragonFrame and it seems AMAZING, but it's truly expensive. It doesn't have to be fancy, I'd like a software that puts frames together and maybe have some jazzy accessory choices. Anyone use anything probably under $100 for animation?

Also, I'd really like it to hook up to my camera and feed from the photos as I take them. This is not a deal breaker, but I'd spend a few extra $$$ to have them intertwine.

Thanks in advance!

i use videopad video editer its free and works great for me!

I use IstopMotion. I know that many hate it, but I like how easy and direct it is.

I use AnimaShooter, the junior version is free and has nearly all facilities, you would need to use a webcam but Logitech or Microsoft life cam are both good and a reasonable price.
