I love my child. He is a learning challenge ball of fun. He loves to confuse things and hates when I write notes to his teachers. For example, he has to write a script, with a team member, based on a myth and then perform it. His genre of myth is Celtic Myths, and he and his partner found something about leprechauns. Joey was a bit nervous about writing a script, so I made a suggestion to instead write a comic strip story using Wixie. I figured…Continue

I attended Columbia College in Columbia, SC, for the first two years of my college life. During my time at this all women's college we celebrated diversity, culture and the courage to stand up for what's right. The month of March was always special since it was the celebration of women's History Month. The theme for the 2014 National Women's History Month is "Celebrating Women of Character, Courage, and Commitment."
The 2014 nominees…Continue

So instead of sharing specifics, let me share a bit more information about how Frames works with stop-motion as well as a few things to consider when looking at different models.
To begin, you can capture frames in Frames several…Continue

My son is the world's biggest critic and loves to share his opinion. Problem is, he has yet to learn to share his opinion in a nice tone and we have to coax the reasons for his opinion out of him. Late last night news hit about Ben Affleck being cast as the next Batman. Joey's also a HUGE superhero fan and I while he was part of the 1% that liked Dare Devil a little, he's going to have a huge fit when he finds out. I hope he doesn't find out till after chores are done tonight.

One of the final questions asked last night really struck a chord with me during the Vice-President's debate. The question was about the negativity of the ads. Both sides of the campaign are guilty of running negative ads. My niece and I were talking about the ads the other day and we agreed that they all make us feel like we're about to enter a world similar to that seen in Hunger Games or that new show…Continue

In Frames 4 you can capture images from a live video stream or import images from a digital camera. To capture images from a live video stream, you will need a camera that can provide a video stream. A standard web cam and most digital video cameras will work fine. If you prefer to use a still image digital camera, you can import images directly from the camera’s internal storage. …Continue
