Using single still Pictures and inserting them one at a time (Frame by Frame) on/into the Time line is it possable to end up with a Fluid scene of stopmotin footage?
should/could this be done in Imovie first?
Thanks again

Er, it should work. Just take some photos of your stop motion thing then save them all in a folder and number them then import them into VLab 1 frame at a time. As for the fluid off the film it should be nice and smooth depending on your camerawork.

If the images are numbered sequentially, you can use the Import Image Stream... command in vlab to import them all at once. Simply go to File > Import image stream.. and navigate to the first frame of the image sequence. VisionLab will import them all and compile them into a single movie file in the media browser.

Hi,

I'm still getting used to Visonlab too.
I've figured this bit out but why when I bring in the phtos using the inport image stream do they not go in the right order? if I go any higher than 10 it goes wrong...ie it goes 1 10 11 12 2 3 4 etc. is there any way to make it count normally?

thanks

Yeah, you have to use the same number of digits in each file name. 001, 002, 003... 010, 011, 012 etc.
