Yeah, I spent the majority of the day yesterday trying to get the damn thing to work. GGRRR. So that is not an option...still. I got a friend's copy of Dragon Stop Mo, which is pretty rad, except you have to be able to capture to your computer, whcih my camera does not allow. I tried to jailbreak it using CHDK, which creates a bootable SD card that will run short scripts and allow your camera to do stuff you normally can't. That didn't help either, as I can't get Dragon to recognize any of my USB ports. So until I win the lotto and have enough money to get real equipment, it's back to the drawing board.
I got Windows Live Movie Maker to work....sort of. It is really jerky, no matter how incremental the pictures are. I can't really control how much time there is between each pic. Unless I add an effect, which makes it jerky anyway.
So now another friend gave me her old copy of After Effects. I am going to give that a try and see if I can at least get each scene sorted.
And it isn't helping that I have been blessed with a huge allergy attack the last few days. Even with my medication I was finding it hard to function yesterday. I chugged Benedryl before bed last night, which at the very least helped me sleep last night. Still feeling it today, but not as itchy.
Will report back with results of After Effects Experiment.....
