taking one frame at a time since 1999

Just looking for some input on editing software. I'm working on a macbook pro with Dragonframe. I've had Final Cut Pro in the past but if there's something that handles stop motion better then I don't mind trying something new. Thanks

I used Final Cut briefly for some live action projects, but find that Premiere does everything very well. I have CS6, quite an old version now, but it works very well. I use it in conjunction with After Effects and Photoshop.

There's a thread on this site called something like Exporting, frame rates and workflow, where some of the experts gave great advice on the workflow for a project, this being one of the trickiest things to figure out.

Thanks Simon, it appears that there isn't a 'one software fits all' kind of solution for this and it may take more research to find the best fit.

Adobe works well on my Macbook Pro, but these days there seems to be more and more open source software. Best of luck!
