taking one frame at a time since 1999

Thinking of buying this as not only is it relatively cheap, but it accepts my Canon DSLR camera. I have tried the demo version and it does what it is meant to do. I also noticed that the short film Peter and the Wolf was made using the software which makes me want this even more! Has anyone on the board used it for any films? Also in terms of chroma key, what is the best software - does AnimatorHD do it?

Anyone?

Never tried it, but if you like the demo and it seems to do everything you need, then I'd say go for it. Have you tried any others for comparison? 

Well not really. It is the cheapest and does support my DSLR live view. Do you know of any others?

Here's Uncle LIO's celebrated list: http://www.stopmotionworks.com/stopmosoftwr.htm

There may be a few more in the same price range that do what you need, not sure. 

I really like it though i am no expert. sure does chroma key,. lip sync and so much more. Does everything i could want.

Didn't know about the chroma key. Now I think I will get it.

Best on the market in my opinion is Dragon Frame. It's amazing and used by all the top studios. I have used Animator in the Past. But I didn't like it. Other than that, Stop Motion Pro is my alternative option. Guys at Aardman use it. Chroma Key is best being done with an editing program than on a stop-motion program. Hope this helps
