In this instructable I will show you how to make a stop motion video in Movie Maker. It is easy and doesn't take much time. If you have any questions or want another instructable with more specific features in Movie Maker please comment.

The first thing you have to do is take the pictures. When you make a stop motion video you are recording a video one frame at a time. You have to move the figure or figures a little bit at a time and take a picture after each small movement. All of these pictures will be combined into the frames of a video.

Here is part of a stop motion video I made (the second half was lost when my computer crashed):
