Is there a stop motion app for Mac? Answered

I have been making stop motion for a long time and I have been wondering if there is a stop motion app because my computer has iMovie and it takes me hours to complete a stop motion with no music.(I have an older computer)

I hope you will one day spend months and months of stressful work on something and then have every deem your efforts as not worth paying for - or even stealing them and leaving you with no compensation, then we'll see how you feel about all of YOUR efforts being "free".

You must be a very cool guy to not need to pay people for their work.

'all-free' software for mac is harder to find. That and its immoral.

I did a bit of stop motion using mac laptops a while ago. The software we used was called framethief. I don't know where to get it, but it was fairly simple. (who can miss the big red button that says capture image?)
