Here are links to two programs that the software creators have allowed us to offer. Anasazi and Helium Frog Animator. Both programs are very old and most likely won't work on many of the more modern computers. However you might like to grab them and give them a try. We suggest a program such as Stop Motion Pro for anyone who would like to animate without losing their hard work due to glitchy software. So use at your own risk! You can find a more reliable capture program such as Stop Motion Pro in our store here.
