Unfortunately my school only has PC's, so I also switched to a PC at home so I could do school work.
I have StopMotionPro software which I love.

So the Sony Handycam??

  If you are editing your video on a Mac (is there any other way?) check out for claymation software. If you buy a video camera make sure it has analog to video conversion like most Sony Handycams. Means you can plug a VHS VCR or Analog signal into the camera and it will be digitized by the camera into the computer! I use it to make DVD's of older VHS tapes or camcorder tapes done on Hi-8 or regular 8 tape.

    I think a digital video camera would be better, can youall suggest one that I should ask for? I've never had a video camera.
    If you think there is some other way I should spend $$ on a piece of "equipment"??
